MPS Law has developed a checklist and template register for staff engaged in risk assessed roles to assist registered NDIS providers to meet their worker screening obligations.
National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) providers can use this checklist to self-assess their systems against requirements of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (Practice Standards – Worker Screening) Rules 2018.
Registered NDIS providers are required to establish a written list of risk assessed roles and keep information about persons that are engaged in risk assessed roles. To assist providers to comply with NDIS worker screening requirements, MPS Law has developed a template Register for Risk Assessed Roles which enables the required information about persons engaged in risk assessed roles to be recorded.
Note that the issues and questions set out in the checklist are of a general nature and may not reflect your specific circumstances. The checklist and template register of risk assessed roles are provided for informational purposes and do not constitute legal advice. The National Disability Insurance Scheme (Practice Standards – Worker Screening) Rules 2018 set out a number of requirements that should be considered according to the circumstances of your organisation and the jurisdiction that you operate in. You should seek professional advice if you are unsure how these requirements apply.
