We understand the risks and how to adequately cover them

SD Insurance are highly familiar with the range of risks involved with earth moving works. Here are some you will surely recognize.

  • Operators risk injuring others around the equipment, both onsite and offsite, during operation and transit.
  • Falls, falling objects, rollovers and contact with energy sources or underground utilities are some more operational risks.

There are several things that can go wrong, which may result in your clients or third parties seeking damages from you.

Tradies, subbies and small businesses risk damages to plant, product or public property. These risks extend to interruptions on building and construction sites.

The equipment itself faces risk due to damage, accidents, theft, vandalism, fire, natural disasters and unforeseen events. There are several considerations to be made with regard to the equipment –whether the equipment involved in the work is self-owned or under what contract it is hired (dry hire or wet hire).

There are risks involved with the operators themselves, risks with injuries on the job and the risk of damaging the equipment – which further depend on whether the equipment is self-operated or on the nature of a hire agreement with the operator and the operator’s work history.

We seriously consider each and every one of the above-mentioned risks and details of the work and even more to make sure your Earth Moving Equipment and excavation works are comprehensively covered with the right insurance.
