Am I insured when I take part in online courses?
The Unfallkasse Hessen (accident insurance Hessen) writes on its website: If the courses offered are part of the general university sports programme which are now taking place online, then you are fully insured within the framework of the law during the time of the course. A condition is, however, that it is an online live-stream course, during which direct contact with the course instructors is given, e.g. for asking questions and getting instruction.“
This means for the online programme „ahs@home“ of the JLU:
The criteria mentioned above are only fulfilled by the “JLU-Pausenexpress“ (JLU Break-Time Express Courses). Here, there the statutory insurance coverage is maintained. With all other current online offers, there is NO statutory insurance coverage. We would like to remind you once again of the conditions for safe online sports training at home:
As a general preparation, you have to ensure that you have got enough space at home to do the exercises, that the floor is not slippery and that you wear appropriate clothes (slip-resistant soles, comfortable clothes etc.). Please do not participate unless you feel fit.
