CBAA News, 16th June 2014

The latest CMTO/CBAA Webinar, held on Thursday 12 June, delved into the world of Workplace Health and Safety with guest speaker Gavin Deadman from Aon Risk Services.

The Work Health and Safety Act 2011 (WHS Act) aims to protect the health and safety of all workers nationwide, including volunteers.

Ensuring the health and safety of volunteers demonstrates that their commitment is valued and recognises the vital role they play in community broadcasting.

AON Australia is a diverse organisation providing a complete suite of specialised risk management, risk financing and insurance services to a wide range of clients.

Content from the WHS Webinar is available via the video below.


Safe Work Australia is an independent statutory agency responsible to improve occupational health and safety and workers' compensation arrangements across Australia. They provide a range of resources to community organisations to assist with their WHS obligations.

The next CMTO/CBAA Webinar will look at conflict resolution. It is scheduled to be held at 6.30 (AEST) on Tuesday 24 June. Click here to register for this free webinar.
