Generating electricity for the modern world

Electricity is consumed universally and it is generated by many means. We use hydro power, wind energy, and sea wave energy which are environmentally friendly systems of generating electricity.

We also use thermal energy, which is generated by coal, fossil fuels and nuclear power. These systems could be identified as environmentally unfriendly. They all burn off dangerous gases into the atmosphere and the present much talked about “Global Warming” is vastly due to our use of these to generate our electricity.

Of the above, the use of nuclear power is today a very controversial subject and better left alone here, but a an important point to mention would be Germany’s decision to phase off all their nuclear power plants within the next 20 years.

If Germany finds nuclear power dangerous, a pertinent question that would linger would be… why not the others?

Whichever way the electricity that we use is generated does not matter, but we are duty bound to use it carefully, intelligently and sparingly but most of all to adhere to all the relevant regulations controlling its use. These are safety regulations and they are for our benefit.

Some of these regulations are strictly enforced hence it is imperative that we follow them consciously and they are Testing and tagging, exit light testing, electrical risk assessment and emergency lights testing. At any given time you should be holding valid certification for all of the above and the regulators would strictly enforce it.

Our company with years of experience has helped the community to be within the required parameters by Testing and tagging, exit light testing, electrical risk assessment and emergency lights testing their premises with dedication and commitment.

Our Testing and tagging, exit light testing, electrical risk assessment and emergency lights testing are par excellence and have the approval of the regulating authorities as we are accredited to them all.

Some insurance covers are mandatory

Jim’s Group which began with the vision of one enterprising individual, more than three decades ago, is today Australia’s fastest growing franchise in the Home Services industry. An initiative to help home owners mow their lawns whilst he was pursuing a Doctorate in History, our founder Jim Penman brought a new dimension to keeping homes and it’s environs neat and clean.

Today with over 3,400 franchisees spread across Australia, the Jim’s Group has diversified into other Home services and many other businesses. Leading among them is the underwriting of insurance which as we know, moves hand in glove with all businesses, whether they are small, big, large or gigantic.

Some insurance covers are mandatory and required by legislation. High on this list is the subject of liability. Every business entity is required to nullify the effects of litigation and payment of compensation with protection from adequate and appropriate insurance.

Insurance compensates the insured for unforeseen calamities and disasters whilst also compensating others or popularly called “third parties” by paying for liabilities of the insured. The insurer would also pay and contest any litigation that such “third parties” would initiate against the insured. All this would depend on the specific clauses that are included in the insurance cover, held by the insured.

Jim’s Insurance having joined the insurance bandwagon a few years back has made a very distinct impression in the industry with our positive impetus and ability to innovate tailor made insurance policies for our insured. Our out of the box thinking has provided relief to many of our insured who have had the unfortunate experience of facing some unexpected natural and man made disasters.

Policies that we devise for companies that are vulnerable to pay compensation, in an eventuality are impressive too. They are but not limited to, Public liability insurance, Commercial building insurance and Business liability insurance.
