Are Disability & Support Workers Covered While Driving Clients Around?
What’s a Rich Text element?
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
Being a disability & support worker involves assisting your clients' in almost everything they need. This may include situations where you need to take them to appointments, to the local shops or on outings. A common question we get asked by disability & support workers is "am I covered while driving my clients around".
The answer to this question is no, under the Allied Health Professionals insurance policy there is no coverage whilst driving.
What is covered however, are instances where you are assisting your client in and out of a parked car.
So let's say you need to take your client to do their weekly grocery shopping and you're helping them get into your car that's parked on the driveway, and something unfortunate were to happen causing them an injury and financial loss as a result, under the Allied Health Professionals insurance you would be covered. If, however, something happened on the drive to the shopping centre, such as a car accident, also resulting in injury and financial loss, you would not be covered.
