If an incident or accident occurs on a Bush Club activity the procedure to follow is:

  • notify the leader on the same day, ideally during the walk itself
  • the leader reports the incident to the Data Base Manager, either on the Walk Report form or on a separate Incident Report Form
  • the Data Base Manager notifies the Insurance Officer
  • the Insurance Officer records the incident and notifies the insurance broker of a possible claim
  • the Insurance Officer provides the injured person with information about what is claimable, and then, if there are claimable expenses, gives the injured person a claim form and provides assistance in completing it if required
  • the injured person must keep all receipts
  • the injured person sends the completed claim form and copies of the receipts directly to the insurance broker. The injured person keeps the originals of the receipts.
