WHEN THE TIME IS RIGHT TO RESTART ACTIVITY - Liability Insurance cover for members during Covid-19 restrictions
Clubs insured with Howden:
During the current pandemic, when the Government confirms the time is right for members to recommence activity, the liability insurers have advised that the insurance cover will continue to apply provided that England Hockey coaches/clubs are adhering to the Government guidelines and any additional supporting guidance provided by England Hockey to its coaches/clubs concerning safety and social distancing.
Risk assessments must be carried out and risk management put in place around Covid-19 requirements. Please note these should be an ever evolving document which take into account the most up to date Government guidelines. Risk assessments are key to evidencing that the risk is being assessed and managed and this is something that the Government has highlighted must be taking place. It is essential that the coaches record and evidence that they are working to and controlling the social distancing measures expected by the Government.
It is also important to remember that should any coach/club/member act illegally, criminal actions would not be insured by the insurance policy. This includes breaking the Government lockdown restrictions and social distancing requirements.
For further information please read What to consider when re-opening after extended closure.
