Murrumbateman Field Days 2023 – Volunteer Induction Form

 

Introduction

To help ensure the Field Days are an enjoyable and safe experience it is important that we know you understand your rights and responsibilities as a volunteer.

 

Your details

Your rights as a volunteer

As a volunteer you will:

  • be provided with a working environment and systems of work that are, as far as practicable, safe and in which you are not exposed to hazards
  • be treated fairly and shown respect
  • be provided with such information, instruction, appropriate resources, training, personal protection equipment and supervision to enable you to perform your work in a safe, effective and enjoyable manner
  • only be asked to perform work which you can do safely - if you feel that you cannot do a job safely or have any safety issues, please discuss with your supervisor or the Volunteers Supervisor immediately.

 

Your responsibilities as a volunteer

As a volunteer you must: 

  • sign in and sign out of the MFD volunteer attendance registers
  • take reasonable care to protect the health and safety of yourself and of any other person at the Field Days
  • inform your supervisor or the MFD Manager of any situation that is likely to pose a health or safety hazard
  • obey the safety rules and directions of authorised MFD personnel, including using protective equipment when instructed. 

 

First aid

If you or another volunteer is injured or feels unwell, please let your supervisor know. St John Ambulance First Aid Points are located at the Recreation Hall and the South Gate. 

 

Work health and safety and other policies

You should make yourself familiar with the information contained within the following important policies available on the MFD Volunteer Portal and from the Volunteers Shed, South Gate, North Gate and West Gate:

 

COVID safety

Facemasks and sanitiser are available for all volunteers. While not mandatory, the MFD encourages those volunteers who will be engaging with visitors and exhibitors to wear facemasks, use sanitiser on a regular basis and maintain social distancing where possible.
