Course Description

The Volunteer Safety course is intended for anyone in a leadership role who oversees volunteers: board members, the executive director, program managers, volunteer coordinators and managers, and supervisors. It’s also valuable for facilities managers and anyone interested in how to set up safe spaces where volunteers work.


Volunteers are important members of your community and your workforce. You need them to stay safe and healthy. Just as there are rules governing workplace safety for employees, volunteer labor is regulated by occupational safety and health code.

Through this module, you will learn about three areas of information:

  1. Safety and health law
  2. How to keep volunteers safe
  3. How to insure volunteers through Washington State’s Workers’ Compensation program.

At the end of this course, you’ll take the Volunteer Safety Quiz and get your certificate.
