Standard Operating Procedures

This is the Standard Operations Procedures (SOPs) for Making Waves volunteers participating in on-water programs nationally.

This SOP is a dynamic document that aims to standardise processes and procedures and will be updated and improved upon continuously. We have a fleet of 4 vessels nationally in different locations, the procedures within this document should acknowledge any differences between locations and vessels, and the corresponding procedure.

If you have any queries or can recommend reviews and updates based on your experience on the water, please email the office (info@makingwavesfoundation.com.au) with your recommendation.
