Commonwealth Child Safe Framework Statement of Compliance

The Organ and Tissue Authority supports and recognises the importance of the Commonwealth Child Safe Framework (CCSF) which sets minimum standards for creating and embedding a child safe culture and practices in Commonwealth entities.

Employees of the Organ and Tissue Authority do not engage in child-related work as part of their standard duties, however on occasion may interact with children as part of organ and tissue donation community awareness activities.

A risk assessment is undertaken annually to evaluate risks to child safety and establish strategies to mitigate identified risks. Given our interaction with children is minimal and infrequent, our risk rating for child safety risks is low.

Employees are not required to maintain Working With Vulnerable People registration. However, any employees who may interact with children on a rare occasion are required to complete a Child Safety and Wellbeing course which provides staff with an understanding of their obligations under the Commonwealth Child Safe Framework.
