Public & Products Liability

 

Public & Products Liability Insurance provides cover for the liability of the insured association (and certain affiliated clubs employees and directors as defined in the policy wording) for personal injury or property damage happening during the period of insurance and caused by an occurrence in connection with official club activities or products (subject to the exclusions).

 

Note that cover is only for ‘legal liability’ – that is, the insured entity’s ordinary liability at law. This means if you indemnify parties with whom you contract and assume greater liability than you would have at law, you may trigger the policy exclusions and you will not be covered.

 

Care must also be taking in releasing other parties from liability as this may also trigger policy exclusions or waive insurer’s rights of subrogation, which may be a breach of a policy condition and void cover.

 

Directors & Officers Insurance

 

With greater corporate governance and regulatory surveillance in place today, company directors and officers are under increased pressure to carry out their duties and obligations meticulously.

 

Failure to do so may lead to personal liability for the individual director or for the entire board of directors, regardless of whether they are acting in a part-time, honorary or non-executive capacity.

 

Directors and Officers (D&O) Liability Insurance is designed to protect the assets of company directors and other individuals of a corporation against such claims.

 

Why do you need it?

 

Specific duties and responsibilities are imposed on directors as to the conduct in which they run a business. The responsibilities are imposed under contract conditions, common law and statutory legislation and, in most circumstances, the individual director or officer will be held personally liable.

 

Who is covered?

 

D&O liability insurance covers the decisions made by people involved in managing and running an organisation. It is important to note that it covers the individuals, not the company. The people generally covered include past, present & future natural persons, being:

 

  • a director, secretary and executive officer,
  • a senior manager and committee member, and
  • an employee acting in a management or supervisory role.

 

Coverage and/or reimbursement of costs are only available where the company has indemnified the individual/s and is subject always to the policy exclusions.

 

Voluntary Workers Personal Accident Insurance

 

This policy can provide voluntary workers, club directors and committee members with Personal Accident insurance whilst undertaking voluntary work for your club. Cover is available, but not limited to working bees, meetings, theatrical productions, fundraisers and charity collections.

 

Volunteers have an important role and are not eligible for Workers Compensation. This policy ensures their protection against financial loss if an injury occurs whilst performing voluntary work.
