The health and safety of our members is something we take very seriously. The privacy and management of this data is also critical to us, as it is to our members. As such Scouts NT has adopted a health and safety application named Operoo.
OpeRoo is an innovative participant controlled electronic medical form for clubs and other groups with a duty of care. It’s an electronic version of the paper based forms you often have to fill in for registrations, events etc. It provides you with the opportunity to update medical information promptly and accurately, while providing the group with instant access to the information provided by you in an emergency.
We will be using the OpeRoo app in the best interest of all of our members whilst ensuring we are proactively fulfilling our risk management and duty of care obligations.
You can use a PC, laptop, tablet or smart-phone to enter the details including:
Medical checklist including asthma, allergies, seizures, diabetes
Health and ambulance insurance details
Notes and other care instructions
From Scouts Australia (NT Branch)’s perspective, this information will only be accessible by authorised officials responsible for looking after our members and will be managed in accordance with the Data Protection and Privacy Act.
