Demining Insurance – Specialist insurance for Mine Clearance in post-conflict Libya
30 January 2012
With the uprising in Libya and the subsequent conflict now over, the people who fled the fighting are now returning to their homes. However, in areas where the battles took place, large quantities of mines and unexploded ordnance (UXO) are threatening their safety.
Humanitarian organisations, employing demining personnel, are already at work clearing mines and UXO, collecting large quantities of weapons and offering assistance to civilians.
Demining - mine clearance and the removal of UXO - is probably one of the riskiest occupations on the planet. As well as being a dangerous occupation, the work is usually in remote regions and/or hazardous locations, where there is also the threat of terrorism or the risk of kidnap.
As a specialist in providing insurance solutions for high-risk occupations and hazardous locations, Bellwood Prestbury is used to covering people working in all kinds of dangerous situations, all over the world. In fact, we can provide insurance for anyone, anywhere.
Bellwood Prestbury’s Lloyd’s Coverholder status enables the firm to write bespoke personal accident insurance, for individuals and groups. Typical cover will include: death, dismemberment, permanent disability and medical expenses including prosthesis. In the event of an accident, medical expenses can cover local hospitalisation and then evacuation and repatriation where medically necessary.
