A note to our members
Many Surf Life Saving Clubs have or will be adding CCTV systems around their respective surf clubs as a means of ensuring greater levels of security for our club and members. Newport Surf Club has an responsibility under State legislation to advise its members of the use and limits of CCTV surveillance at club premises through a policy.
The purpose of this policy is to govern the use of a CCTV system by Newport SLSC as an incident risk management tool under the requirements of the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 (NSW) (WH&SA) as well as the Workplace Surveillance Act 2005 (NSW) (WSA).
These guidelines focus only on the use of CCTV cameras at Newport SLSC which operate in the downstairs corridor, upstairs hall, bar area, gym room and front beach entrance areas of the club house.
Note: for future reference we now have a page called Constitution & Policies that can be found under the About our Club tab.
