Insurance and Risk Assessments
As CAG Devon group members your activities/events are covered by public and product liability, assuming you have up-to-date covid-secure risk assessments in place which have been signed off by the CAG Devon team at least a week prior to the event.
To help with your risk assessments, we strongly suggest you make use of the following resources:
- CAG Devon Risk Assessment Templates and Guidance – covering nearly every activity that CAG Devon groups undertake, plus measures to make your event covid-secure, based on latest Government guidance.
- Presentation slides from our April webinar: “Getting back to it – running events safely”, where Pete Wills, Senior Consultant at Resource Futures, explores the issues which need consideration and measures that need to be taken to make events covid-secure, even after restrictions have been eased.
- Video from our April webinar: “”Getting back to it – running events safely”.
A summary of the cover provided by the CAG Devon insurance policy can be found here. Contact the CAG Devon team for a copy of the detailed schedule.
