Under the Work, Health and Safety Act (WA) 2020 legislation, volunteers are better protected in the workplace. The local government sector has had to review the induction, training and management of volunteers as they are now included under the definition of a 'worker'.
Join representatives from the Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety (DMIRS), and LGIS to explore the work, health and safety legislation, the management of volunteers and protections available under the new laws.
During this webinar Candy Choo, CEO, LG Professionals WA and Marta Makuch, Volunteering Network Chair will officially launch the Volunteering Network. Candy and Marta will provide an overview of the new Volunteering Network, which aims to strengthen and promote volunteerism in the WA local government sector.
