The Kingdom of Fungi Workshop

The Kingdom of Fungi Workshop presented by Dr Frances Guard.

Dr Frances Guard is a medical doctor with 40 years of experience in the field. 13 years ago, her passion for conservation combined with her medical background led her to work with macro-fungi on a conservation property at Maleny. For the past 13 years Dr. Guard has been involved in Queensland Mycological Society holding the president seat for 3 years until 2017. Her interest with QMS is community education and fungi photography along with other passions like rainforest regeneration, bird watching and, plant and animal surveying.

Dr Guard is the Co-author of;

  • Australian Subtropical Fungi, (2014)
  • Mushrooms and Fungi of the Sunshine Coast (2016) and,
  • Australian Tropical Mushrooms and other Fungi (2019).

Fungi are essential components of all ecosystems including native and urban forests. Their roles vary from helping, breakdown and recycling of nutrients or promote soil health, to damaging, hurting their host or host environment. Regarding urban trees, pathogenic fungi represent a challenge for urban forest and ways of managing these need to be examined.

Fitzpatrick Insurance Brokers – Tools of the Trade

I have a liability policy, does this cover my Tools.  No!

Tools of Trade cover is a separate policy that provides in most policies Australia Wide cover for all your Tools.  Insurers don’t need an individual list of items but will need a value for them, and some may require you to specify items if they are over a certain value, around $2500 depending on the value of the item.

If any of your Tools got stolen can your business still run?  Or if your entire toolbox was stolen how much would it cost you to replace all of them items in it, including many of the items that you have built up over many years.  Tools of Trade cover can provide cover for these items and not leave you out of pocket or unable to work without these items.

It is important to check your policy on a Tools of Trade policy as sometimes the cover can be limited by either location, or theft exclusions.  For example if a Tool was stolen from a non locked vehicle, toolbox, shed or back of a ute, it may not be covered depending on the insurer.

Can you afford to run your business without your tools?  Or will the small cost of Tools of Trade insurance provide adequate protection to keep you running in a frustrating time when your tools have been stolen.

For assistance with any of your insurance needs please contact Mick Le Grand, Director of Programs at Fitzpatrick & Co. on 03 8544 1634 or email mickl@fitzpatrick.com.au.
