As a volunteer for Warringah Independents Limited and the Zali Steggall Campaign for Warringah, I agree to the following:

Warringah Independents Limited and Zali Steggall values its volunteers and we will endeavour to provide you with:
We ask that you:
In your volunteer role we require you to:
In New South Wales there are laws that protect volunteers in community organisations from civil liability (i.e. legal action like a negligence claim) in specific circumstances.
We will explain more about these laws in your induction. To ensure you are protected you must perform voluntary community work that is directed or supervised by an incorporated community organisation or performing voluntary community work as an office holder of an incorporated community organisation. It is important that you only perform the tasks as instructed by the organisation. To be covered by these laws it is also important that you are not affected by drugs or alcohol when you are volunteering.
If you are unsure whether a task or work is authorised, please do not hesitate to talk to the campaign team.
At Warringah Independents Limited volunteer safety, and the safety of everyone who is involved in our organisation, is a priority.
In New South Wales, the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 (NSW) (WHS Act) applies to many volunteers because all organisations that engage workers on a paid basis can owe WHS duties to everyone in the organisation (including volunteers). Also, there may be other legal actions (such as negligence claims) that mean we always need to consider work health and safety issues.
Under the WHS Act and other laws, Warringah Independents Limited has a duty of care to minimise risks to everyone affected by its conduct (including paid employees and volunteers).
It also means that as a volunteer, you may have WHS duties too. These include:
We are committed to providing adequate insurance cover for volunteers while carrying out their volunteering roles that have been approved and authorised by us.
Warringah Independents Limited maintains both Volunteer Insurance and Public Liability Insurance.
We want to let you know that the following events are unlikely to be covered by our insurance:
