Work Health and Safety Act- Volunteer Changes

As a result of legislative changes, on 1 January 2012 the new Work Health and Safety Act 2011 was introduced replacing the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2000. In response to the introduction of this Act, a number of key changes have been identified that will affect your surf club, particularly the inclusion of volunteers as ‘workers’ who now have the same rights and responsibilities as paid employees. To address this, SLSNSW has developed an informative DVD to provide an overview of the new Work Health and Safety Act 2011 and highlight how the changes will affect our clubs and members. This DVD should be used as a training resource and to assist our clubs in ensuring a safe environment is provided for all.
