How do we know we’re screening effectively if we haven’t identified and assessed what the  risks are? Managing the risks in your organization is vital to sustainability, ensuring a safe environment for your staff, clients and volunteers. A well conducted risk assessment will help you strengthen your role descriptions as well as identify training topics for your volunteer team. The ability to demonstrate what you have done to mitigate risks is a vital step in this process. In this webinar we'll review the Ten Steps of Screening, created by Volunteer Canada. We will also review a practical tool to help walk you through the process of conducting a volunteer risk audit so that it can be easily replicated within your agency.
