NCA Volunteers 

Volunteers

Everyone has a right to be safe at work, including volunteers. Volunteers play a vital role in communities across the Northern Territory and Australia, making significant contributions by carrying out unpaid work for a variety of organisations every day. A person conducting a business or undertaking who engages volunteers to carry out work may be covered by the Work Health and Safety (National Uniform Legislation) Act and owe a duty to volunteers as workers.

Safe Work Australia has worked with a range of volunteer associations to develop a volunteers resource kit to assist volunteers and volunteer associations understand the extent to which they owe duties under the Act.

The volunteers res​ource kit​ and other information is available on the Safe Work Australia website.​​
