Circular 34/23 Safety, Risk and Wellbeing course for Office Bearers and Trustees now available
Further to Circular 22/23, issued on 6 April 2023, the Safety, Risk and Wellbeing course for sub-Branch Office Bearers and Trustees is now available.
The online training program will support Office Bearers (sub-Branch executives and Trustees) in managing the safety and wellbeing of themselves, and others when volunteering, working, socialising, or participating in sub-Branch-organised commemorations and activities.
The course covers a range of topics, including:
- Responsibilities and management of the safety and wellbeing of volunteers, employees, and themselves
- Identifying hazards (physical and psychosocial) and limiting the risks they pose in the sub-Branch/workplace
- The steps to take to assess and manage hazards should they arise
- Keeping safety and wellbeing records.
The course is hosted on an online training platform, managed, and custom-built exclusively for RSL NSW by Major Training Services (MTS). A separate email with login details and detailed instructions on how to access the training will be sent directly to the personal email addresses of sub-Branch Office Bearers.
Please ensure the sub-Branch Portal has been updated to reflect any changes to Office Bearers following the sub-Branch AGM and email the minutes of the meeting to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each sub-Branch Office Bearer is required to complete the training individually, therefore, the sub-Branch email address, or shared personal email addresses, cannot be used as training logins.
Please note, the login email will be sent from email@example.com. If members do not receive the login email, please ask them to check their spam folder.
ANZAC House recognises sub-Branch Office Bearers are volunteers and as such, the training can be completed at their leisure. There is no deadline, and it is not required to be completed in a single session.
If your sub-Branch requires financial support to fund the IT equipment necessary to complete this training, please submit a request for financial support by completing the Support & Assistance Fund Application Form.
If you require assistance to access the training platform, please contact the Member Support Team on 1300 679 775 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
