The insurance is valid during the following services
The liability insurance provided by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment covers the personal injuries and damage to property for which the person participating in the try-outs, training and coaching is liable in accordance with the Tort Liability Act. A group liability insurance is valid during work assignments and does thus not cover damage occurring, e.g. on the way from home to the place where the service is provided.
The insurance covers injury and damage caused to the service provider or an outside party. The insurance does not cover injury and damage caused to the person participating in the service or his or her family (e.g. broken eyeglasses during work try-out).
After the occurrence of injury or damage, the organiser of the try-out, training, trial or coaching must fill out a declaration of damage together with the person participating in the service responsible for causing the damage.

Work-related accidents and occupational diseases affecting persons taking part in coaching or a work trial agreed with a TE Office receive compensation from the State Treasury.

Compensation is based on the Worker's Compensation Act.

An accident is a sudden and unexpected event resulting from an external factor, which results in an injury or illness. A work-related accident occurs at the workplace, in the area of the workplace, or outside the area of the workplace while performing work-related duties.
In the event of an accident, take these steps:
More information on the insurance coverage is provided by the TE Office that has made the agreement of the service. When making the agreements on the training, coaching and try-outs, the TE Office will inform the service participants and providers about the insurances and their terms.
