SafeHere Resources

It is important to resource your leaders appropriately. Every organisation will have different needs and constraints.

So please take time to... explore thoroughly the options offered and consider whether the online resources will be suited to your users.

We all learn in different ways - some people will welcome owning a printed guide appropriate to their level of responsibility and others would barely look at it again!

Visuals and interactive learning are essential when literacy or having 'English as a Second Language' is an issue.

Is access to a computer difficult or will your leaders be enthusiastic about the online system and see its potential to save them hours of work and piles of paper?

We strongly urge you never to to forget that training is the key to embracing safety management.

Policy making and record keeping will not deliver the desired outcomes unless you provide the appropriate training for every person involved.

The SafeHere Kit

Implementing SafeHere starts with a SafeHere Kit. It provides you with each of the published 'level specific' guides, and the electronic resources you need to start doing training and using SafeHere.

The SafeHere Kit contains:

  • 1 SafeHere Team Members Pocket Guide

  • SafeHere Team Leaders Guide

  • SafeHere Coordinators Guide

  • SafeHere Organisation Guide

  • 1 Resource CD with electronic copies of all SafeHere forms and training resources.

For more detail about the individual elements and current pricing, read on ...


Team Members Pocket Guide

Team Members are all people working with participants. They work within a broader team, and have limited responsibilities. A concise pocket guide is provided with a strong emphasis on child protection, safe activities and a range of specific guidelines. It's written in plain English, and sets standards that are achievable and practical.

SafeHere Team Members Pocket Guide will help you:

There are also chapters providing guidelines and advice for safe activities, hygiene and medical safety.

Team Leaders Guide

Team Leaders are people given responsibility for leadership of a discrete program or event. At this level of the system SafeHere provides a a reference document that contains a range of forms and guidelines to assist in risk management planning, safety and responding to incidents.

SafeHere Team Leaders sit within a chain of accountability and support. Team Leaders are responsible for their teams, and a range of information is provided that supplements what is provided in the Team Members Pocket Guide.

Coordinators are often members of an organisation's staff who are given the task of coordinating a set of programs. SafeHere assists them to assess safety issues and grant permission for appropriately planned programs to proceed.

SafeHere Coordinators sit within a chain of accountability and support. Coordinators are responsible for their Team Leaders, and a range of information is provided to assist Coordinators to undertake that role.

These guides link to PowerPoint presentations and worksheets provided on the Resource CD. The guide also contains the answers to the test questions posed in the Team Member and Team Leader training modules, and feedback in relation to the answers given.

SafeHere Organisation

SafeHere has developed this resource to assist organisational leadership. It describes the key features of a "SafeHere Culture", provides guidance on how to implement the SafeHere system across the organisation, assists Risk Management Officers and provides a framework for an Emergency Response Process.

Risk Management Officers are appointed by the organisation to oversee safety and care across operations. They deal with serious matters and emergencies, and ensure that SafeHere protocols are adhered to. SafeHere Risk Management Officer assists the appointed Risk Management Officer(s) (RMO) within an organisation to carry out their safety and care roles.

Risk Management Officer sits within a chain of accountability and support. RMOs are responsible for overseeing issues of safety and care across an organisation, and carry out this role via the organisation's Coordinators, who have responsibility within a particular area. A range of information is provided to assist RMOs in their role.
