Member protection policy

Queensland Athletics is committed to providing an environment that is safe for children and that is free from harassment and abuse for all athletes, officials, coaches, volunteers and employees.

Queensland Athletics has adopted the Athletics Australia Member Protection Policy to assist in that regard. It supports the development of an environment in Queensland which is conducive to the development, enjoyment and appreciation of athletics. Member protection is relevant from grassroots to international level and seeks to ensure that everyone involved in our sport is aware of his or her legal and ethical rights and responsibilities.

We are committed to the health, safety and general well-being of all of our members and will work to ensure that everyone associated with our organisation complies with this policy. We would encourage all who are involved in athletics to familiarise themselves and comply with this policy.

Child and youth risk management strategy

Queensland Athletics is committed to providing a safe and supportive service environment directed at ensuring the safety and wellbeing of children and young people in its care.

Queensland Athletics has developed a Child and Youth Risk Management Strategy to foster a safe and supportive service environment for children and young people by identifying potential risks of harm to children and young people and implementing strategies to minimise this risk.
