The requirements for workers to hold Working With Children Checks vary by state.
In some states, members of the governing body of your organisation may also require a Working With Children Check.
Working With Children Checks must be valid at all times for the person to engage in child-related work. This means consistently checking the status of employee and volunteer checks against national and state databases.
Having a plan in place helps you to meet your obligations to keep children safe. In some states, having a documented policy, procedure or plan is required in order to demonstrate that you are meeting legislated child safe standards.
Every organisation should have a secure system for keeping record of their personnel's Working With Children Checks. Exactly what information is required varies by state.
Having a system that records compliance information will assist you to quickly demonstrate to regulators that you are compliant in this area.
