Mining & Energy Contractor Services

As resource industry insurance experts, our services extend beyond just placing insurance

Risk Profiling

At Trident, we understand that not all Mining Contractors are the same, which is why we must analyse each of our clients risk profile.

The benefit of doing this exercise is the following:

  • Allows each client to have a greater understanding of their inherent risk
  • Helps to differentiate the clients risk profile from other Mining & Energy Contractors
  • Provides the insurance market with greater confidence in the Company, by having a strong understanding of the level of risk.

Risk Framework Consulting

In order to help our clients understand what they can do to minimise their risk, our role as Insurance Brokers has now evolved to become Risk Consultants.

Each Trident Broker has a strong understanding of what measures companies can implement, in order to decrease their level of risk.

This provides the client with the following benefits:

  • By decreasing the level of risk, this enables the Insurers to offer decreased premiums.
  • Prevents future losses from occurring.
  • Allows the client to keep up to date with recent risk management changes.

Risk Reviews – Loss control programs

It is impossible to prevent all losses from occurring, however Trident can help prevent the impact of these losses.

We do this through the following:

  • Business Continuity Planning
  • Disaster Recovery Planning
  • Incident Response Framework. For example, implementing pre-agreed recovery experts, such as Injury Management Consultants or Building Repairers.

Insurance Program Audit Service

Trident offers prospective Mining & Energy Contractors with an obligation free insurance program audit service.

It is often hard to understand the fine print of policy wordings, so we offer to make this easier for you to comprehend.

Our review includes the following:

  • Heat map identifying any gaps in cover, or improvements we recommend
  • Detailed report on any uninsured risks identified
  • Premium benchmarking, in order to assess overall cost of insurance

This audit service proves to be a useful offering, particularly for companies looking at mergers or acquisitions of other companies.

We also recommend a range of Liability and Expenses Cover for Mining & Energy Contractors

Management Liability Insurance

There are a number of exposures that Mining & Energy Contractors are potentially liable for. A Management Liability Policy can provide coverage (including defence costs) for the following:

  • Cover for Directors or Entity – allegations of misleading and deceptive conduct in a contract negotiation
  • Employment Practices – include issues such as bullying, harassment or allegations of wrongful termination
  • Statutory Liability – Breaches with respect to Work Health & Safety (WHS) or other Statutory Regulations
  • Crime – Theft of Funds or Stock by Employees
  • Tax Audit Expenses

Legal Expenses Insurance

Providing cover for the cost of defending or pursuing statutory or civil actions. Example of this could be contractual disputes with a Client or past employee, or statutory matters such as a WHS breach.
