Professional Indemnity Advice For Door Supervisor Trainers

Conflict Protect : 11 May, 2010  (Technical Article)
Door Supervisor trainers specialising in physical intervention are being advised to check their insurance policies to ensure they have professional indemnity for their high risk profession
Trainers now moving into the area of physical intervention need to check their policy urgently warns David Malone of insurance specialist Conflict Protect.

"Most security and door supervisor trainers have not needed to have insurance that covers physical intervention because the qualifications only required standard class room activities," said Malone.

"In many cases the policies will only cover accidents arising from normal teaching. Training physical intervention introduces many more risks for the trainer and the delegates and any professional trainer will need to re-visit his or her policy."

Insurance companies will often not want to cover these risks, or put them in at a large premium. "We have followed the conflict management training sector for several years and understand the different risks associated with the different levels of training, whether it be disengagement, holding or use of handcuffs," he added.

Trainers should particularly check the risks around professional indemnity, which deals with the advice they give to their delegates. Most employers expect to see this, and in the event of a claim it is important that the cover reflects accurately what is being taught.
