About the workshop

Designed specifically for the volunteers who work in our bushland, wetlands and coasts, and those who coordinate volunteer groups, this free half-day workshop will provide training on how to recognise and manage workplace risks to ensure a safe working environment.

Working in the natural environment is a hugely rewarding experience, but comes with the need to be aware of, plan for and know how to respond to natural hazards such as snakes and fire, to know how to safely handle tools and chemicals, and what to do if someone is injured or becomes lost.

In this workshop, highly experienced presenter Richard McDowell will provide training in:

  • the legislation and duty of care that applies to community volunteers and to those who coordinate them
  • how to identify hazards and implement risk controls
  • how to respond in the event of an incident, and what your responsibilities are

The workshop will include a practical hazard and risk assessment exercise.
