The Current Landscape
With rising concerns about global warming and a push toward ethical underwriting, mining companies operating in today’s landscape are facing a unique set of insurance challenges. Aon’s 2017 Global Risk Management Survey identified the following top 10 risk concerns for miners.
With all these risks being considered, companies in the mining sector require both insurance and risk management programs that are exceptionally effective, to reduce the cost of risk, and to help satisfy a breadth of regulatory requirements.
Aon’s Mining Team supports mining organisations through challenging circumstances, helping them to optimise their risk-taking and risk management activities. With significant project development, exploration and operational site expertise, Aon combines this with a desire to understand the complexities of our clients’ activities, to create optimal solutions.
What Does Your Organisation Need?
To appropriately manage the risks in this sector, organisations must create insurance programs that are closely aligned to their company’s risk tolerance. This should be a continually evolving process as projects progress through the exploration, design and operational phases.
When working with Aon, mining companies can be assured that all risks will be identified, as our mining specialists partner closely with clients to address all risk issues at their sites.

Financial risk, market volatility and regulatory changes make it challenging for employers to design retirement programs that support business objectives and achieve positive outcomes for employees. In an evolving retirement landscape, our consultants help ensure your company’s retirement programs are secure, equitable and sustainable.
We can help your organisation with:
- Defined contribution consulting services that analyse your company’s objectives and employee population to help you meet your retirement planning goals
- Governance, risk and compliance consulting to help you understand key risks and statutory/regulatory requirements that impact your long-term employee benefit programs while balancing business considerations and both operational and legal risks
- Design consulting to ensure the most appropriate retirement plan for your business and employees.
Longer life expectancy means we now have five generations in the workforce at the same time, and spend on healthcare continues to rise both for employers and employees. Our clients tell us that they are increasingly concerned about what this means for long-term health care costs.
- The health market is complex, and it is important that you have a partner who understands the relationships between regulators, employers, insurers, and software health providers
- Our relationship with a broad range of providers, carriers and regulators make us perfectly placed to know about the latest trends, plan designs and effective ways to manage costs. We can then use this knowledge to develop unique programs that deliver the best solutions for your employees and importantly manage costs effectively.
Working extensively with our clients we identified that talent management remains a soft science, with clients looking for more benchmarking data, technology platforms, analytical expertise and ultimately more certainty around connecting better talent with better organisational performance.

- Governance and human resources
- Governance evaluators
