Dance insurance - Risk management news (Vol. 1, 2015)

Markel has partnered with the following vendors to provide discounted services to insureds. See below for descriptions and links to more information directly from the vendors.

Praesidium child abuse risk management services*
Your staff and volunteers can reduce the risk that a child in your care will be sexually abused by an employee, volunteer, or by another child. But first, they must know how. Praesidium, Inc.'s "Armatus" will teach them. As a Markel client, you can access the Armatus training resources for just $10 per user. Get access to other select sex abuse risk management training and educational services from Praesidium at a 20% discount.

Intellicorp criminal background checks at a discount*
Run background checks on your employees and volunteers at a discounted rate. Additional jurisdictional fees may also be charged.

Driver education
As part of Markel's commitment to safe driving, we have teamed up with I DRIVE SAFELY to provide online “Interactive Driver Safety” training to your employees at a deeply discounted rate of  $22.50 - that's 25% off their published retail rate of $30.00.

We encourage you to engage your drivers in the Proactive Defensive Driving training program that explores subjects including the causes and consequences of poor driving, preventable & non-preventable collisions, risk factors outside your vehicle including the road, weather and other drivers, managing risk on the road, as well as basic vehicle maneuvers.

Register today for Proactive Defensive Driving and take advantage of Markel's client discount.
