The deadline for registering to vote in the upcoming General Election is 5pm today (Wednesday).

Kerry County Council is reminding the public to check that they are registered to vote on Saturday, February 8.

 

The relevant form for the Supplementary Register of Electors (RFA2), which is available online and from public offices, must be signed and stamped by a member of An Garda Síochána and returned to the Register of Electors at Kerry County Council, County Buildings, Tralee by today.

 

Voters who were included in the Supplement to the Register of Electors for the local and European elections of May 2019 are registered for the General Election and do not need to take any action.

 

However, anyone who applied for inclusion on the Draft Register of Electors in the period since the elections of May 2019 is not automatically registered to vote in this General Election as the new Register of Electors does not come into effect until February 15, 2020, which is a date later than that on which the General Election will be held. Those voters must apply to be included on the Supplement to the Register of Electors on or before Wednesday, January 22.

 

Kerry County Council has published a list of frequently asked questions on its website to advise voters of these arrangements and recommends that voters use the Check the Register website to check if they are registered to vote or to contact the Register of Electors at Kerry County Council on 066 7183530 with any queries.

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.
