Demining Insurance – Specialist Insurance for Mine Clearance in Cambodia
30 August 2013
Following thirty years of civil war, large quantities of left-over mines and unexploded ordnance (UXO) still present a major threat to safety in Cambodia. It is estimated that between 4 million and 6 million landmines and other types of UXO kill, maim or dismember more than 200 people each year.
A number of mine clearance organisations operate in Cambodia, which are committed to clearing landmines and offering assistance and education programmes to civilians living and working in or near to minefields.
Many skilfully trained personnel work in the demining sector despite mine clearance being one of the world’s riskiest occupations. As well as being an extremely dangerous occupation, the work is usually in remote regions and/or hazardous locations, where there is also a heightened threat of terrorism and/or the real risk of kidnap.
As specialists in providing insurance solutions for high-risk occupations, Bellwood Prestbury are supporting many mine clearance operatives and demining companies, operating in a number of hazardous regions around the world.
As fully authorised Lloyd’s Coverholders, Bellwood Prestbury have the experience and expertise to create cost-effective bespoke demining insurance to meet the insurance requirements of the International Mine Action Standard. Cover can also be provided, even in the most remote or high-risk regions of the world, for the risks in running a business - risks such as public, professional or employee liability, and for specialist equipment and vehicles.
