Risk Warning

Risk Warning Under Section 5M of the Civil Liability Act 2002 on behalf of STEAA.

STEAA organises many events such as workshops, summer schools, performances during the course of a year.  STEAA administers and convenes these activities in which many of our student members and teacher members of this Association participate.

While STEAA take measures to make these activities as safe as possible for all participants, there is a risk that students, teachers and family members can be injured and suffer loss (including financial loss) and damage as a result of their participation in these activities.

Injury can occur while the student, teacher or other member is engaging in or watching an activity, travelling to and from venues.  The injury may result from the member’s actions, the action of others, the state of premises or equipment failure. In very rare cases the injury can be life-threatening or result in permanent disability.
