Marsh's Mining, Metals, and Minerals Practice identifies events, issues, trends and regulations that may impact the management of mining risk.

Mining, Metals & Minerals

Mining is a diverse and complex industry of vital importance to the economy. As a high hazard industry, casualty risks are inherent, but mining companies must also contend with new challenges such as an industry wide decline in financial solvency, consolidation, and an aging workforce. In addition, industry-specific risks such as environmental and reclamation bonding make it difficult for mining companies to remain financially competitive.

Marsh's Mining, Metals and Minerals Practice offers a variety of consultative services to help clients avoid, mitigate and transfer risk. These services include:

  • Mining Needs Analysis Checklist - a total package for risk management that combines needs analysis, risk assessment, and marketing submissions;
  • Risk Information - a Web-based incident tracking and workers compensation reporting system designed to tie multiple mining locations together with one database;
  • Environmental Consulting Services - a worldwide network of environmental specialists, including consultants that offer assessment of asbestos, lead, silica, and chemical contamination; and
  • Workforce Consulting - a specialty practice that develops strategies for managing a workforce, including diagnostics, absence management, behavioral sciences, and ergonomics.
