FBA Volunteer Handbook

August 2020

The Volunteer Handbook is a summary of FBA’s Policies & Procedures relative to engaging and managing Volunteers for Project works. This booklet is an essential resource offered to FBA’s regular volunteers and to supervisors of both ad-hoc and regular volunteers to ensure that the time shared with FBA is a rewarding experience.

Workplace Health and Safety Policy

FBA is committed to providing a safe and healthy working environment for all workers, and other persons, so far as reasonably practicable. This will be achieved by management and employees working together, following a program of health and safety activities and procedures which are monitored, reviewed and audited to achieve best practice.

Voluntary Workers Personal Accident Insurance

Certificate of Currency

Volunteer Personal Accident Insurance provides cover to FBA volunteers. The attached policy outlines your scope of cover.

Code of Conduct

The purpose of this Code is to describe the standards of behaviour and conduct expected from workplace participants in their dealings with landholders, stakeholders, community, coworkers, management and the general public. This Policy applies to all employees, agents and contractors (including temporary contractors) of the organisation, collectively referred to in this Policy as ‘workplace participants’.

Performance and Misconduct Policy

The objectives of FBA’s performance and misconduct policy are to: (a) correct and/or improve the standard of conduct of an employee where appropriate or necessary; and (b) provide any particular employee with an opportunity to correct unacceptable conduct (other than in situations where summary dismissal is appropriate).

Anti-Discrimination and Equal Employment Opportunity Policy

FBA aims to provide an environment where employees and others in the workplace are treated fairly, with respect and are free from unlawful discrimination, harassment, vilification and bullying. This Policy applies to all employees, agents and contractors (including temporary contractors) of the organisation, collectively referred to in this Policy as ‘workplace participants’.

Human Resource Policies

The Human Resource Policies Suite has been developed by Fitzroy Basin Association (FBA). FBA shall be referred to as “The Organisation”, “The Employer”, “The Employer Organisation” interchangeably throughout the policies. Exceptions are noted throughout the policies to capture organisation specific conditions for a particular aspect of that policy. Only when an Exception for a specific organisation is listed will the policy in its entirety not apply to all employees. Where an organisation does not have an employee with the specific title listed in the policy, the responsibility will revert to the Executive Officer of the organisation.
