SFU appreciates the contribution of Volunteers to our educational community. We encourage the same standards of safety and care for our volunteers as we do for our employees, which includes adequate training and supervision at a level appropriate for the activity.
While participating in officially sanctioned activities authorized by SFU, unpaid Volunteers are covered under SFU's insurance policies for accidental death & dismemberment, permanent & total disability, accidental medical, burn and fracture.
In order to protect both Volunteers and the University, we encourage departments to clearly outline the rights and responsibilities of Volunteers in advance of any activity. Risk Management has developed a Volunteer Agreement which can assist with documenting your agreement.
