Sydney NSW 2001Public Liability Claim Form
Similar to the disclaimer and waivers, the following points are pertinent to you providing your ‘duty of care’ and responsibilities to your students/clients and the general public:
The PGA reiterates that there is no longer a requirement for members to get their customers (including juniors) to sign an appropriate disclaimer form prior to the giving of any tuition / lesson / clinic. The PGA however, strongly recommends that members continue to use these forms for all lessons (particularly junior clinics) in order to protect you and the PGA from avoidable actions and subsequent increases to insurance premiums.
On this website you will find all applicable forms, sample letters to clients and explanatory information for members:
Whilst it was our intention to reduce the wording on the disclaimer/waiver form to one page the insurer has stated that the size of the font used on the document must be of a size that the court will determine as “legible”. Hence it is important to note that the formatting of the disclaimer and size of the wording is not to be changed by individual members in an attempt to limit it to one page or it may be deemed to invalidate the insurance coverage.
Please familiarise yourself with all the enclosed information and replace them over all previous versions of such documents:
You will often be required or requested to provide a Certificate of Currency in order to provide evidence of your Public Liability Insurance. This will usually be required by a Council if you hire grounds or other locations where you teach but could also be requested by other parties such as a school or shopping centre if you are looking to promote your services on their premises or conducting a clinic.
Alternatively, if you need a Certificate of Currency with an Interested party noted, please input the details here. We will need to obtain the authority of the insurer to do this and may need to contact you for further information*.
