Is a question we are asked frequently and one that must be explored professionally and may be easier to approach and consider this question from the stand point that you are in a court of law, under oath and being subject to a legal claim for injury to another person (regardless how caused).
What credible documented defence would you be able to offer?
We appreciate it’s a bit harsh! but this is the reality today with lawyers (no fee no win) advertising for cases to pursue, so in short, your only defence would be an accreditation or qualification in what you were teaching.
Furthermore; European Law states that you must have a Duty of Care.
A Duty of Care is a legal obligation imposed on an individual, requiring that they adhere to a standard of reasonable care while performing any acts that could harm others.
Breaching such a duty may subject an individual to liability.
We must point out we are not lawyers and not able to offer advice beyond our understanding of safety standards.
