Does YOUR life and disability insurance plan have an exclusion such as this? "There will be no benefits for a disability or loss that is caused or contributed to by an act or incident of war, declared or undeclared."
Employees should know where they are going and what's at stake.  Employers should advise their employees of their coverage before assigning them to duties.

Online ENG/SNG/CNG Safety Courses.

Synopsis of the in-depth ENG-SNG-CNG Safety Courses 100/200, and the short Courses 101/102:

Course 100 is divided into 8 modules, each with a quiz at the end. Each module has its own meaning related to the other modules. Modules are comprised of many videos and pictures of incidents, and examples of certain safety-related information.  At the end of the last module, the “quiz” is the final test.

Students are required to get 100% on each quiz, which is made up of questions with multiple choice answers...many of them correct in some cases.  The amount of correct answers is given, so students know how many they need to choose.  If they do not get all of the answers, or have an incorrect one, they are asked to go back and review and re-answer the question.  They cannot progress without a 100% score.  It’s easy, but challenging.  The quizzes are more for supplemental learning than comprehension of the material, but they accomplish both.

These are not easy courses, nor is the information within easy to digest, as it deals with actual footage of incidents and tragedy. By the time a student/employee has completed the course, they will likely be very reactive towards questionable situations, and we hope will defer, above all, towards safety.

Course 200 has been created as the next step for those who have taken Course 100. It is 7 modules, with the same learning/quiz pattern as Course 100.  Each Course will take 3-4 hours to complete.

Course 101 and Course 102 are short, 1-hour experiences, to 'get the word out' about field and vehicle safety. The concepts taught and tested on are the same as 100 & 200, but elaborate less than in those longer courses. Course 101 can be followed by Course 102 in the same time period, or the next quarter, half-year, or year.  Course 102 reviews many of the points in Course 101, and expands the vocabulary of employees towards advanced incident/accident causes, and also, plain old staying safe.

In order to keep the safety education experience interesting and fresh, a library of documented incidents is used to keep spreading the message and break down incidents for better understanding of their cause. Subsequent courses, as industry transformations occur, will be created to be done in subsequent years. Cost discounts are offered for those who want employees to take more than one course in a calendar year.

Course administration for all courses is typically handled by one person at the company/station, who will exchange information with, which will provide FULL coverage of registration, any troubleshooting, and completions reporting. Comprehensive progress reports are typically issued weekly...and can be done on request...all at no additional charge.

Candidates gain a Certificate of Achievement (pdf) at course conclusion, and they are encouraged to download and deliver that to the station contact for filing. and the station contact can also access this information, as well as reports regarding the date the course was taken, and how much time the employee(s) spent on the course/modules. feels that all courses will work as safety 'tools' that can be assigned to all news and engineering employees who will gain positive quantifiable results with regard to safety education and training. The courses are an economical approach to the goal of getting employees up to speed with the same information, and having documentation of their accomplishment. Courses can be customized by inserting or deleting certain information and/or including corporate safety information and/or customized station or company cultural information.

Management and peripheral employee course designation (M/P courses) is available at very low cost for management & peripheral employees to be able to be on the same page with safety education as field people. M/P course designation is to encourage participation in safety education for as many as possible without stressing tight budgets.
