All the students at Arcada are insured against accidents. The insurance covers all students during practical lessons, practical training and when travelling to and from the training place (even abroad). The insurance does not cover if students get injured in school (e.g. tripping on stairs) or under a theory lesson. The insurance does not cover travelling to and from the school. The student is required to have a private accident insurance for all other situations (not related to practical training or practical lessons).
In the event of an accident requiring urgent attention, the student should go to the nearest health centre, and inform the staff that he/she is insured at the school. Be prepared that you may have to pay for the treatment services, and save all receipts for refunding purposes.
You can contact the nurse Tessa Puolakka, 050 310 56 07 if you are not sure about whether you should seek attendance from the health centre or not.
Urgent illness which requires medical treatment is treated at the health centre. Call 10023 for information about general health. The phone number can be reached at any time during day and night.
Amanuensis Maria Enoksson assists you in filling out the insurance forms.
