Great news. New members get free Good Samaritan Insurance. Existing members can get cover for just £5. AoFA membership for a first aider is just £10 + VAT.  

AoFA Membership and Free Good Samaritan Insurance scheme:

Have you ever considered that you could be sued for carrying out first aid? By joining the Association of First Aiders you will be covered for your Good Samaritan acts enabling you to concentrate on dealing with the casualty rather than worrying about the potential aftermath.

 

£2 million Public Liability Insurance Cover.

 

All association of First Aiders members (excluding ‘Affiliates’ and 'Students') are protected from claims whilst administering first aid as a Good Samaritan arising from:

·         Accidental  injury to third parties

·         Accidental damage to third party property

The insured will also be covered as a registered First Aider at work, where the employer does not hold such insurance.

Principle Terms:

·         The limit of indemnity falling within the insured period is £2 million.

·         Damage to property belonging to or in the custody of the insured person is excluded from cover.

·         All claims under this policy must be made in the UK

·         Insurance is restricted to Good Samaritan acts where the first aider comes across an incident requiring medical attention by chance rather than request. For example you happen to be present at the time of a road traffic accident. However, attending a village fate as a designated First Aider would not be covered as you are present by request instead of chance.

·         The insured is only allowed to carry out first aid procedures which they have been trained to perform and are confident in their skills and abilities to perform these procedures.

·         Training qualifications and certifications which cover first aid skills must be current and valid.

·         The insured must hold valid membership of the Association of First Aiders (AoFA)
