The British Drilling Association (BDA) is pleased to announce it has partnered with First Insurance Solutions (FIS), one of the UK’s leading insurance brokers, to bring a number of benefits to members such as discounted rates, cover for plant whilst underground where available, access to risk management resource library and site visits as and when required.

FIS offers specialist insurance for drilling contractors, with cover including:

  • Unlimited Depth Limits
  • Ground Source Closed-Loop Drilling
  • Ground Investigation
  • Site Investigation
  • Water Wells
  • Geothermal Drilling
  • Shaft Probing
  • Mineral Exploration
  • Environmental Drilling

Cover is available for Liability (Employers, Public & Products), Plant & Equipment (Own or Hired In), Contractors All Risks, Motor Vehicles, Professional Indemnity, Financial Losses – loss of business claims made against you by client, Legal Expenses, and Commercial Property (Buildings, Contents & Equipment).

FIS has a good understanding of the risks faced by the drilling sector and will assign BDA members a dedicated account and claims handling team.

In the event of a claim needing to be made, FIS’s trade-specific knowledge enables it to work with loss adjusters and insurers, who often do not have industry specific knowledge, to influence the direction of the claim and aid the decision-making process.

In addition, through its Complete Response Service, FIS can also appoint loss assessors to prepare and negotiate claims on your behalf.

To receive any of the benefits being made available, quote BDA membership when contacting FIS –
