A Helping Hand for Volunteers - Safe Work Australia - Volunteer Assistance Package
Safe Work Australia has launched a new Volunteer Assistance Package developed in partnership with Volunteering Australia.
The package includes a Volunteer Assistance Line, email and webpage designed to provide guidance and support to volunteers and volunteer organisations who may be affected by the new work health and safety (WHS) laws.
You can contact the Volunteer Assistance Line on (02) 6240 4990 to talk to an expert for advice on how the new laws affect volunteers and their activities.
The Volunteer Assistance Package includes fact sheets, frequently asked questions and useful contacts and is available at the Safe Work Australia Website.
Please note that this is not a Swimming Australia Ltd. program but it is a great resource to assist volunteers if required.
