Bielefeld Gymnasium - DEPs/UKBCs/LECs are to have personal liability and personal accident insurance

Since 2011 to use ANY MOD Gym, DEPs/UKBCs/LECs are to have personal liability and personal accident insurance, this is due to a costly amount of claims against the MOD. 
The MOD will no longer accept responsibility for any injuries.
If any DEP/UKBC/LEC wants to use an MOD gym and take part in activities then it is at own risk, if they get injured, then they claim from their own insurance and not the MOD. All members have, since the refurbishment in 2014, signed to say they have the correct insurance and signed the risk assessment before using the gym.
The difference at Bl gym is the station has paid for the personal liability for Bl stationed DEPs and UKBCs only, so all you are required to pay for is personal accident insurance. Anyone that hasnt got it, needs to get it to use the gym and take part in any activities to adhere to the MODs policy. It can be purchased cheaply at the ergo insurance office in block 8. Most home insurance offers personal accident insurance in their policies, a phone call to check it covers them in the gym is sometimes required if not stated in the policy. Any new members to the gym since 2016 have to provide a copy of accident insurance. Anyone that hasnt signed the risk assessment should do it asap to adhere to the MODs policy and avoid any disapointment. Anyone that still doesn't understand should speak with Ricky in the Gym on ext 3249 where he will explain what is required.

Domestic Abuse: Information, Advice and Key Contacts

What is Domestic Abuse? Domestic abuse is essentially about the power and control of one person over another person. Such abuse may show itself in many ways, including physical violence, emotional or mental abuse, sexual violence and abuse, financial control or keeping a person in the home or not allowing them to go out alone, telling them who they can and cannot meet and talk to.

Perpetrators may blame being drunk or say they have "anger management problems." These can be factors but they are not the only causes of the abuse.

Abuse against women and girls is a gender based crime; however, we must recognise that men and boys can be victims of Domestic Abuse and that it can affect whole families, including children.

Men have a key role in stopping the violence and helping to change the attitudes and actions of their peers.

Children of all ages can be affected by domestic abuse, even if they do not see the abuse directly. For further information Click Here
