2.7 Working with others Working with young people may impose certain legal and ethical requirements related to safety and supervision. This is unlikely to affect most bat group work, but further information can be obtained from the Child Protection in Sport Unit Tel 0116 234 7278/7280, website http://www.sportprotects.org.uk). 2.8 Insurance Matters of insurance for bat workers are not always clear and may vary for different bat groups. Some individuals maybe covered for some or all aspects of bat work by their own private insurance but some bat-workers, including those not members of a local bat group, may have no cover at all. Bat workers carrying out roost visits for the SNCOs are covered in the same way and have the same rights as members of staff. Some of the SNCOs provide additional limited personal accident insurance. Bat workers should check the status of their insurance with the relevant local office if in any doubt. Bat group members involved in bona fide bat group activities can be covered for public liability insurance (including member to member) under the Bat Conservation Trust’s policy, provided the bat group is affiliated to the BCT. The policy has a maximum liability of £5 million. The BCT policy does not provide cover for personal accident or equipment loss. Some landowners are uncomfortable with letting bat workers on their land or property without proper insurance, particularly if the visit is to an abandoned mine. When attending shows or hiring rooms check with the organisers or room owner that they have the necessary public liability cover.
