HEALTH and fitness expert Karl Henry of RTÉ’s Operation Transformation fame will be Killarney bound on June 15 when he will join forces with Sinead Desmond of Ireland AM to scale Carrantuohill.

Karl and Sinead, together with a team of trekkers, will be taking on the Four Peaks Challenge in aid of the Irish Alzheimer Society, supported by Allianz.
Karl, Sinead and a group of Allianz employees are aiming to raise €50,000 in much-needed funds in order to help the charity to continue to support local communities by providing dementia specific services and to continue to advocate for the rights and needs of all people living with dementia.

The charity plays an important role in influencing policy regarding care and support services, while representing the views, needs and concerns of all affected by dementia. Karl is taking the team with him on this incredible challenge and training sessions with Karl and the group are already underway. This strenuous and demanding challenge kicks off in Killarney where the group will first take on legendary Carrantuohill. From there, the team will move to Mweelrea in County Mayo, the highest mountain in Connaught. The last day concludes with taking on both Slieve Donard in County Down and Lugnaquilla in Co Wicklow before returning to Allianz HQ. “This really is the challenge of a lifetime and one that I am so happy to be involved in supporting the Alzheimer Society with Allianz,” said Karl.

“We’ve begun our training for taking on the four highest peaks in Ireland and already the dedication by everyone, helping and driving each other is incredible. As well as increasing our fitness levels, I’m delighted that we will be raising funds for the Irish Alzheimer Society with our target being to raise €50,000. I’m really looking forward to kicking off the challenge on June 16 climbing Carrantuohill in beautiful Killarney!”

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.
