Next month’s diesel costs are covered for one countywide charity who are struggling during the current crisis.

With donations way down, and increased costs due to the addition of extra buses on the routes to maintain required physical distancing, Kerry Cancer Support Group, opted instead for an online fundraiser and an appeal seeking support from companies that can get behind this much needed and vital service.

And, one such company who came to their rescue, Applegreen, has donated fuel to the value of €2,000 to cover the next month’s diesel costs. The fuel vouchers will be used to keep the Health Link Transport vehicles on the road between visits to hospitals in Cork and Limerick.

“We are delighted that Applegreen have done this,” Breda Dyland, Manager of the Kerry Cancer Support Group, said. “In the midst of what is a very anxious time for everyone this has come as a very welcome boost for the Kerry Cancer Support team and our service users. All of our funding comes from the community and all of our fundraisers have either been cancelled or postponed so this couldn’t have come at a better time.”

Aoife Sheehy, Corporate Social Responsibility Manager at Applegreen added that they are delighted to support Kerry Cancer Support during these unprecedented times and are very grateful to the essential service they provide.

“Applegreen sites across Kerry have come together to deliver this initiative and now, more than ever, are here for their communities”

To donate and support the charity, Kerry Cancer Support has set up a donation page on Facebook: Kerry Cancer Support Group's COVID-19 Appeal, or you can call 066 7195560 or visit the fundraising section on their website www.kerrycancersupport.com.

What kind of insurance does a building contractor need?

Commercial vehicles and machinery

First and foremost, if a building contractor has commercial vehicles then road risk cover is a requirement by law. As with all other motor insurance products, the cover options would be comprehensive, third party fire and theft, or third party only. Commercial fleet polices can cover many vehicles under one policy.
The value of the vehicle is important to review each year, as are the drivers.
Commercial vehicle policies usually give “open driving 25 to 70-years-old” but sometimes naming the drivers who will use the vehicle is a better option and can save you money.
You may need road risk and associated covers for driving plant and machinery such as teleporters, tractors and the like.

Employers, Public and Products Liability Insurance

Employers Liability Insurance covers your legal liability in the event that you are negligent and required to pay compensation for bodily injuries to an employee in the course of their employment. Employee numbers and annual wages will need to be disclosed accurately and annually.
Public Liability Insurance covers your legal liability in the event that you are negligent and required to pay compensation for bodily injuries or damage to third party property in the course of your business activities.
Your annual turnover will need to be disclosed and reviewed annually. Many main contractors and State bodies may require the tradesperson to have a minimum of €6.5 million limit of indemnity.
Products Liability Insurance covers your legal liability for injuries and property damage in connection with goods sold or supplied.

Other covers needed may include “Tools in Transit” cover which can be arranged in conjunction with your commercial vehicle policy and “Engineering Inspection Cover” may be required on plant and machinery. A “Contract Works Policy” protects the building works in progress against fire. Some insurers can include “Personal Accident” cover on a combined liability policy.

You should seek out the expert advice of a professional insurance broker to review your insurance needs. At Healy Insurances, we can review your business requirements, offer expert advice and save you money on your premiums.
