Mining and Engineering are volatile and risky work environments. As a contractor working in this industry, you understand the risks and hazards and you are aware that absolute care is needed to ensure a safe work environment. As a contractor, you are responsible for having your own insurance. Having the correct insurance program should be part of every mining and engineering contractor’s project management plan.
Each contractor faces complex and unique risks, depending on what you do, where you work and what you are working on. Accidents can occur at any time and when they do, the results can often be serious and extensive.
Contract agreements between you and another party that you sign frequently include onerous indemnity and risk transfer agreements. This means that one party (typically your business) assumes liability for all parties involved. These types of arrangements have a significant impact on your insurance program.
Contractual Liability should be an essential inclusion in your insurance program. This insurance protects you from many liabilities you may assume when you enter into a contract.
