Volunteer Code of Conduct
Although you are a volunteer, you are still subject to the rules and conduct expected of all FSRS staff members. Once you have made a commitment to the organization, we depend on you to follow through with your commitment. Essentially, you become an integral part of the FSRS team.
As such, you represent the organization to both patrons and the public at large, and it is important to portray a positive image. Regardless of your capacity or seniority as a volunteer with the Foothills Salvage and Recycling Society, you are expected to:
Treat patrons, visitors, donating patrons and staff with respect and courtesy. Be sensitive to the diverse people involved with the FSRS, including race, culture, social & financial class, gender, age disability and religious background. Conduct yourself in a manner that is befitting a positive organizational image. Partake of no alcohol / drugs while on a shift, and do not report for duty while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Show up on time and dresses appropriately for your shift and the weather. Contact the Operations Manager immediately when you must cancel a regular volunteer shift. Stay through your entire shift. Keep all information you handle confidential.
In return, from your FSRS staff you can expect to:
Have your concerns, problems and issues listened to. Be treated with respect and courtesy. Be kept informed about changes within the FSRS that pertain to you. Be provided with a safe atmosphere in which to volunteer
Be provided with necessary training opportunities Be appreciated for your contributions to the society
While we appreciate the time you graciously donate to the Foothills Salvage and Recycling Society, reported negative behaviours will be investigated and, depending on the frequency and severity, could result in termination of your volunteer position with the FSRS.
Police Record Check is also required prior to final processing of application. We supply the form and payment.
