Volunteers are legally entitled to a healthy and safe work environment. The best way to manage their health and safety is the same way you do for paid employees. You can use this handbook to set up a volunteer health and safety system.
This handbook tells you about:
consulting your volunteers
taking a systematic approach
thinking about the risks
information, instruction, training and supervision
emergency and first aid
supporting injured volunteers' return to work
common injuries and illnesses
It includes case studies to show how to control risks.
