Reporting person injuries is moving from the traditional reports to the FEI online reporting system, with enhanced usability and reporting capabilities.
Online reporting makes it possible for the FEI systems to automatically alert National Federations when one of their athletes is seriously injured at an FEI event. As a result, National Federations will be able to check the athlete’s fitness to compete before entering him or her in another event. In doing so, National Federations can help prevent subsequent accidents and injuries, especially in the case of concussed athletes.
This new report concerns FEI Officials assigned to FEI Events as Foreign Judge or Technical Delegate for Jumping, Dressage, Para-Dressage, Endurance, Driving, Vaulting and Reining. The system will be extended to Eventing in the next few months.
- You will have to continue to submit your complete event reports as you usually do ; please only use the online system to report person injuries.
- Kindly note that hard or electronic copies of the person injury report (sent by post, e-mail or fax) will no longer be accepted by the FEI for events taking place after 31 July 2018.
- You will need to fill in one (1) section of the report per injured person (NB: you will see that in addition to athletes the online form also covers FEI Officials; please make sure to report any injury sustained by these as well. We will look to extend this report to other categories of personss in the future).
- You should record all injuries sustained by athletes and FEI Officials during the time of your assignment at the event. Injuries occurring outside competition time (i.e. during training) must therefore be recorded as well. The online form will allow you to indicate at what time the injury occurred.
- If you have no person injury to report, please open the person injury report online amd indicate that no injuries occurred. This is an important step, as if this information is not recorded, the FEI will have to follow up with you in order to be certain that there was no injury at the event.
