For a better perspective

Hawcroft’s Insurance Risk Surveys are recognised as an industry standard.

That’s because we apply a comprehensive, systematic approach to identify risks and ensure the right controls are in place.

Our reports are comprehensive, ensuring underwriters are well-informed of risks surrounding your operation, and quality of control over those risks.

We offer insurance risk surveys, construction risk reviews, asset criticality and specialty assessments for a wide variety of mining, processing, materials handling, power, refining, port and rail operations.

Working directly on many of our clients’ internal risk assurance programs, we always aim to have minimal impact on daily operations while upholding all site standards.

Hawcroft reviews include:

  • Open cut and underground operations in coal, metalliferous, evaporites
  • Underground critical controls for ground control, methane explosions, dust explosions and spontaneous combustion
  • Detailed assessment of draglines
  • Open stoping, block caving and complex underground operations
  • Hoisting and ventilation systems and infrastructure
  • Processing, tailings, conveying, stockpiling and reclaiming
  • Rail loading, transport and ship loading
  • Machinery breakdown, condition monitoring and structural integrity
  • Fire protection
