COVID – 19 Insurance Updates Placements

The University’s general liability insurance remains in place and we have no exclusion for liability arising out of communicable disease. The Ministry of Colleges and Universities has confirmed that their workplace insurance coverage for unpaid placement continues for students during the COVID-19 pandemic and covers both students working remotely and in person.

In the event that a Student incurs a workplace injury or illness while in the course of the Placement, the Placement Site will immediately notify the University’s Placement Coordinator and will work with the University to complete the appropriate WSIB (or Chubb Insurance) claim form(s). For a COVID-19 claim to be allowed, evidence must show that the student’s risk of contracting the disease through their placement is greater than the risk to which the public at large is exposed and that work significantly contributed to the student’s illness.

In the Event of an Injury while on Placement

The Placement Employer has three days after learning of a placement incident to inform the University that the incident occurred. Please contact slp.clinicalaffairs@utoronto.ca and cc the UofT course instructor. You will be guided to complete the H2.1 Letter of Authorization to Represent Employer, a claim form ( as per the Guidelines for Workplace Insurance for Postsecondary Students of Publicly Assisted Institutions on Unpaid Work Placements) and an accident report H2.2 U of T Accident Report/ The three completed forms will be submitted to placements@utoronto.ca.
