Accidents and Injuries are part of Sport. Touch Football Australia recognises this and has undertaken a National Insurance Scheme to cover all registered participants.
Should an injury or Accident occur at your Affiliate Club it is important that records are kept and the correct process is followed to ensure any insurance claims are not jeopardised. Below is a step by step process for injury managements and reporting at your Affiliate/club:
If an injury does occur at your affiliate ensure basic first aid is provided. All Affiliates should have as a minimum a first aid kit and Ice available. It is also important your affiliate identifies an entry point for an ambulance should this be required.
It is imperative your affiliate records the time and date of the injury as well as the injured member. This will ensure you can provide the member with the injury report forms and information.
If possible, have the injured member completed the injury report form at the time of the injury. The form has a section which need to be filled in by an Affiliate Representative. Should this not be possible ensure this is completed as soon as possible. It is strongly encouraged all Affiliates keep copies of the injury report form on site during competitions. It is then up to the injured member to submit the claim within 120 days of the injury.
All insurance information can be found through our insurance providers website:
