Agreement For Insurance Requirement

Volunteers are not provided with any cover under Workers Compensation, which is established for the purpose of paid staff only. Instead, cover is provided, through a Voluntary Workers InsurancePolicy which is held by Perth Homeless Support Group Inc.

The following points are noted in relation to this insurance cover:

  • In the event of an injury whilst engaged in activities authorised by Perth Homeless Support Group Inc, all medical expenses must be charged to, and paid by the volunteer in their own name. Insurance claims will not be considered by the Underwriter if this process has not been adhered to.
  • It is essential that any injury is reported to the responsible Team Leader/Supervisors/Managers immediately, to enable an Incident Report form to be completed.
  • In the event of an injury sustained as a result of a vehicle accident, the standard Transport Accident Commission insurance cover applies.
  • Volunteers use their personal vehicle at their own risk. No cover is provided for damages that may arise during the course of, or as a result of, voluntary work being provided to Perth Homeless Support Group Inc. Full comprehensive insurance is recommended, this being the personal financial responsibility of the volunteer.
  • Volunteers have a responsibility to take reasonable care for the health and safety of others; and to co-operate with any health, safety or welfare requirements. Any accidents or injuries should be reported to the Team Leaders/Supervisors/Managers.

Having read the above statement in regard to Voluntary Worker procedures, I hereby agree to undertake duties as a volunteer with Perth Homeless Group Inc. accordingly.
