    Asbestos Insurance

    A company that will deal with or currently handles asbestos directly or indirectly are required to have asbestos insurance as part of their overall insurance policy. The most common businesses that handle asbestos are typically asbestos removalists, however, there are some professions that encounter asbestos materials unexpectedly as part of their daily occupational hazards, these occupations include site surveyors, waste management, excavators amongst many others, particularly in trade industries. 

    Asbestos insurance is such an integral part of a sound business plan as the dangers associated with the substance are both long-term and can prove fatal. Asbestos has been scientifically linked to cancer and breathing disorders.

    Not only is asbestos insurance an integral aspect for businesses to protect their employees, it can also include statutory liability for any fines that can result from mishandled asbestos or any other statutory infringements.

    Asbestos insurance covers a range of different asbestos exposures including asbestos removal, asbestos transport, landfill management, demolition, excavation and salvage sales. These insurance covers can range from single asbestos related contracts or annual contracts for businesses that regularly encounter asbestos, such as removalists. 

    The types of cover and cost of cover will depend on a range factors including experience, qualifications, equipment and licensing in order to provide the best insurance cover for your particular business. Due to the dangerous nature of asbestos handling and management, asbestos insurance is critical to businesses at risk.

    Demolition Insurance 

    Demolition Insurance will cover the cost of demolishing your building if it has been seriously damaged by any disasters such as fire or a storm or the in order to knock down a structure for rebuilding. In order to provide specialised protection to their business, demolition contractors have a range of insurance options available specific to their industry.

    In most states in Australia, employer’s liability insurance is a legal requirement, this is often combined with worker’s compensation and covers a worker’s medical expenses should an injury occur in the workplace. Employer’s liability also insures employers for legal costs that are incurred should an injured employee consider their workers compensation insufficient for the injury and engage in legal action. Public liability insurance will cover the cost of any potential injuries sustained from customers or the public at the worksite or near the worksite. Contractors all-risk insurance ensures that your business is covered from any error, negligence, collapse or natural disasters that have damaged the project under construction. Fees for intervention insurance will protect your company of any fees that are incurred from potential health and safety violation as notified by a registered government inspector. 

    The dangers that are presented to both employees and the public in the demolition industry are unique and should be correctly insured in order to prevent financial losses to the business.

    Testimonials

    My sons and I own a mechanical workshop in Brisbane and we’ve been dealing with Insurance Advisernet for nearly a decade. Leigh Moulden has looked after our account for approximately eight years, taking care of all our general insurance needs. I’ve been asked the question several times ”Why do you use an insurance broker?” – The answer is simple, we just don’t have the time to shop around to get the coverage that suits our needs. Leigh understands our business. We find him very astute and trustworthy to make sure we have the right coverage. If we do have the need to put a claim in, it is a quick phone call or email to Leigh and he will follow it through from lodging the claim to the final cheque being deposited into our account. I highly recommend Leigh to look after all of your Insurance requirements.
    Gary Hargrove
    Director, G & L Motor Repairs & Performance
    We highly recommend insurance broker Leigh Moulden for all classes of insurance. Our business insurance policies were complex until Leigh took over to simplify and maximize our coverage. We have recently made a claim and can say without Leigh's assistance we would not have been able to run our business as smoothly during such a stressful time. Thank you Leigh for taking control of the claim process and ensuring our risk coverage.
    Anna Byrnes
    Director, Styling Spaces Melbourne Pty Ltd
    We have been using Leighs services for over 6 years now and have developed a great working relationship. As we are builders insurance is a very important part of our business and we have all our insurance with him from warranty insurance right down to car insurance Leigh has always given us thorough and prompt service. The best part for us is knowing that we are covered completely and that if anything happens Leigh will always be able to help, I always recommend Leigh for any insurance needs
