Australian Red Cross strives to provide a safe environment for all of its staff, volunteers and those associated with the organisation. Australian Red Cross is committed to the proper management of occupational health, safety and welfare in line with legislative requirements.
With that said, when fundraising for Australian Red Cross, we ask you to please check the weather forecast on the morning of your collection or fundraising event. If the temperature is predicted to be 36 degrees or above at 12pm, please reschedule your collection, doorknock or fundraising event for a different day. Please dress appropriately for the weather - remember to wear a hat and comfortable flat shoes, use 30+ sunscreen and stay hydrated at all times, taking regular breaks when needed. Where possible, collect in pairs. Always let someone know where you are going and when you should be back. Where possible carry a mobile phone and remember to call 000 in case of an emergency.
For further information regarding Work Health & Safety, or to obtain a copy of Australian Red Cross' policies and statements, please call the Red Cross Calling Team on 1800 RED CROSS (733 276).
