Why A Speed Awareness Course Could Raise Your Insurance

We recently covered the breakdown and eligibility of our National Speed Awareness Course (NSAC) and all information can be found in this link: ndors.org.uk/national-speed-awareness-course-nsac/ . Some of you may have read that article and wondered “what will happen to my insurance costs if I attend a speed awareness course?” More to the point, you may be asking “will I have to pay more in insurance costs after attending a speed awareness course?” Well, the short answer is “yes”, but the devil is in the detail, which we will now provide.

The thing to remember is that, once you have been caught out for speeding (either by a passing police car or by a speed camera), then really you have one of two choices: attend the course, or don’t attend the course. But if you don’t attend the course, then your penalty will be more severe, meaning an increased fine and more points on your licence. Not only that, but you may not be allowed to drive for a certain amount of time. Therefore, before we even get onto insurance, think about the major and obvious downside of not attending the course. So, in the event that you have been caught speeding, you may be nervous about attending the course, but choosing not to do so will only make things worse.

Now we come onto insurance. In the event that you decide not to inform your insurance provider that you have attended a speed awareness course (and worse still, if you don’t inform them that you have been caught speeding) when the time comes to renew, then as with not attending the course at all, the potential consequences will be more severe. An insurance provider requires a large amount of trust from you, regardless of the financial impact it may have on future insurance plans. So, if you decide not to let them know, then in the long run, you will be paying much more, because you will have broken the circle of trust that every insurance provider needs and demands from a client.

But we’re not ignoring the key issue: yes, insurance costs will increase upon the attendance of a speed awareness course, but think about why this is the case. The provider is covering you in the event of a road accident that wasn’t your fault, but if it is proven that you have been speeding, then the responsibility lies with you. In that case, even if it was only a mile over the road limit and even if it was only once in your many years of driving, you have proven that there could be a violation of the rules of the road that is your fault. So, the provider will think that the chances of you being involved in an accident have increased, whether fairly or otherwise, because it is on record that you have broken a driving law. An insurance provider is not going to keep costs the same (or drop them, for that matter) if you’ve been caught speeding. Now, through good driving behaviour training , those costs may return to regular levels further down the line, but in the short-term, they will always increase, and attending a course will be a factor in this. We reiterate, though, that attending a course and not informing your insurer (or refusing the course outright) will only make things worse.

The Importance Of Having A Strong Construction Access System

Human Recognition Systems have developed a truly innovative, forward-thinking piece of technology in MSite, which is the very best workforce management system available within the construction industry. After all, it is extremely important to have a strong construction access control and time attendance system, as we will now explain.

Firstly, the MSite technology ensures that the management of your employees will be of the highest possible standard, and that the employees themselves will be at a top level. It picks the right people with the right skill sets for the right jobs, meaning that any construction organisation will be able to maintain high ethics at all times. This, of course, transfers to the construction site and the offices themselves; if you don’t have the best people working for the company, this can lead to errors, accidents and other problems which can negatively impact upon the reputation of the construction firm. MSite will match perfectly-qualified people to the most suitable roles, and so this emphasises the importance of the system from an employee standpoint.

But it isn’t just about the workforce. We mentioned the construction sites themselves, and the system also provides strong control of a company’s bases through the maintenance of a healthy, safe working environment. The importance of this is clear: accidents of any kind are prevented, with safety measures recommended to be put in place and watched over once installed. This helps the construction organisation to be compliant with all health and safety regulation, as well as saving time and money, and allowing those in charge to know that their businesses are operating at full capacity with no hitches. Best of all, it allows the higher-ups to focus on landing new deals, managing major projects and generally focusing on the business, because MSite handles the maintenance of the sites from an access control and safety maintenance standpoint.

And then we have time and attendance. We’ve already noted how MSite saves time, but the technology will also monitor how employees arrive and leave, meaning it tracks how many hours the workforce are putting in. This includes where they are actually working from on the site, as well as noting how long they are spending on a particular task. What’s more, it monitors their attendance in general, which is not only helpful when determining who is and isn’t present, but it also becomes vital in the unlikely event that an accident does occur. While the top safety precautions available will be put in place, the organisation must still be prepared for the possibility that something goes wrong, especially on a serious level. Now, imagine if they are unsure whether certain employees are or have been on site at the time of an accident, which could have serious long-term repercussions. Thanks to MSite, though, the attendances of all are monitored, which can be a huge helping hand should something untoward occur on-site.

So, it is very important for a construction company to have a system that covers workforce management, access control, and the recording of time and attendance, which embodies the key benefits of the MSite technology. You can read more at www.humanrecognitionsystems.com/product/msite/

Cheap Unlimited Web hosting uk & Customer support

This may be a bit of a wake-up call for some business owners who just assume customer support is free.

Some packages provide unlimited free support, whereas others charge extra for it or offer a limited amount free. In most cases, it’s best to opt for the unlimited free support so you don’t have to worry when problems do occur.
