Volunteers Resource Kit now available!
The new volunteer resource kit is part of the Australian Government’s ongoing commitment to assist volunteers and organisations.
The new work health and safety laws
Everyone has a right to be safe at work, including volunteers. Volunteers play a vital role in communities across Australia and make significant contributions by carrying out unpaid work for a variety of organisations every day.
The information on the website outlines ways volunteers can meet their work health and safety duties and explains what volunteers can expect from the organisations they volunteer for. It also provides information for organisations that employ workers and engage volunteers and how the new Work Health and Safety (WHS) laws apply to them.
For more information on the WHS / OHS laws in your jurisdiction contact your work health and safety regulator.
