What Are the Specific Risks Faced By Darwin Businesses?
Data from 2012 revealed the most common crimes in the ACT to be property related crimes, such as unlawful entry with intent and motor vehicle theft. As a business owner operating in the area, your physical assets are particularly vulnerable to theft or malicious damage, which can result in costly interruption to operations and, subsequently, loss of profit.
Businesses operating in the area should be aware of this risk, and plan their risk management strategy accordingly. Property damage and theft can be extremely difficult to predict and prepare for, so it’s important that your assets are fully covered with an appropriate insurance policy. PSC Direct Insurance Brokers Canberra specialise in sourcing appropriate policies in order to ensure business property is fully covered in the case of theft, burglary or malicious damage.
Darwin’s mining and energy industry production exceeds $2.5 billion annually, from minerals including gold, zinc and manganese. Businesses operating in the industry are extremely important to the Northern Territory’s economy, but they are also exposed to a high level of risk.
Mining is one of the world’s most dangerous occupations, with miners facing several dangers while carrying out their day-to day work, from cave-ins to gas explosions, vehicle collisions and fire. It is therefore vital that businesses operating in the industry take steps to reduce the risk that they are exposed to, and have adequate insurance in place to cover them financially should an incident occur.
PSC Direct’s Insurance Brokers have extensive experience in Mining Insurance and as such are best placed to offer risk management advice to businesses operating in this niche.
Tourism employs 8% of Darwin residents, and the industry is expected to grow as the state is experiencing an influx of domestic and international visitors. Darwin’s tourism sector is currently creating employment opportunities across the state, but businesses operating within the sector should be aware of the specific risks they are exposed to.
At PSC Direct, we understand that insurance cover is vital for the peace of mind of any business owner, particularly business operating in the Tourism industry where managers have to deal with a wide range of human behaviours. As such, we can ensure that Tourism businesses in Darwin are appropriately covered for things like Public and Product Liability as well as fire and storm damage, theft and even personal injury.
With an increase in demand for petroleum from the Timor Sea, Darwin’s importance as a port is expected to grow.
