Consider the following scenarios in the context of your own company. Many of today's insurance
policies would not adequately protect a business from these types of losses.

When a fire erupted in a haul truck, the damage was complete. Not only was the $2.5 million truck with a
capacity of 360 tons totally destroyed, but its loss also caused decreased productivity and lost income for
the mining operation. Chubb's package policy paid to replace this expensive piece of equipment and the
mining operation's lost revenue. Furthermore, our loss control risk engineers worked with mining company
personnel, recommending enhancements to the fire protection systems on the replacement truck to
minimize the potential that a similar incident could occur.

Chubb's loss control risk engineers worked with a coal mine to help them develop better controls and
contracts. When the mine's equipment repair service contractor's vehicle ran off a hill at a surface coal
mine, the accident was serious and involved a fatality.

Having followed the recommendations made by Chubb's risk engineers, the coal mine operator had an
appropriate contract in place that held the operator harmless and listed the operator as an additional
insured on the repair service's general liability policy. With these controls in place, the claim was fully
absorbed by the equipment repair service contractor.

You can count on Chubb to be there when you have a loss. The member insurers of the Chubb Group of
Insurance Companies consistently earn high ratings from A.M. Best for financial stability and from
