At Waverley Gymnastics Centre, teaching physical education skills to children or generally supervising children in a physical environment sometimes requires quick or unexpected movements including lifting or catching (‘spotting’) children aged from 2 years and upwards. Additionally, teaching positions also often require lifting and adjusting sports apparatus. It is a policy of the Club to endorse and practice the provisions of current legislation. In pursuing this, the employer shall provide and maintain so far as is practicable, for its employees and gymnasts, a working environment that is safe and without risks to health.
It is each staff's responsibility to notify the Human Resources Manager if they have any pre-existing injury or illness that may prevent them from fulfilling their duties. Failing to notify or hiding a pre-existing injury or illness which might be affected by the nature of the proposed employment, could result in that injury or illness being ineligible for future compensation claims.
Applicants must be legally entitled to work in Australia.
