|ARG UK Insurance Scheme|
ARG UK offers an insurance scheme to provide public liability insurance for the group (with an excess of £500 on any claim) and personal accident insurance for individual members. Further information on the scheme can be found in ARG UK Insurance Advice note 3 revised July 2011 (164.03 kB)
The scheme is free to groups formally affiliated to ARG UK. To take advantage of this scheme a group should carry out the following four steps:
1. Confirm affiliation to ARG UK
To confirm affiliation an ARG should:
2. Incorporate health and safety considerations into all events
3. Keep an accurate record of membership and fully insured members
Insured ARGs should have a clearly defined membership system in place and an up-to-date list of membership. All group members requiring personal injury and member to member cover must complete a Volunteer Working Agreement on an annual basis. Completed forms should be kept by the group as a record of its fully insured members.
4. Keep records of health and safety measures taken
Groups should keep records of training, attendance at events, risk assessments and measures taken to minimise the risk of accidents.
