Black Hills State University utilizes volunteers to perform tasks or services that are part of the business of the agency. The Office of Risk Management suggests that we screen these individuals to ensure that they are capable of performing the duties that will be required and assigned to them. BHSU also makes every effort to provide thorough and documented training.
A Volunteer Information Sheet must be completed and the Volunteer Work Agreement must be signed prior to volunteering any tasks or services. These forms must be filed with the Human Resources Office.
The State's Workers Compensation Program and the PEPL Fund cover volunteers who have signed the Volunteer Work Agreement form.
If you have any questions regarding volunteers or the liability coverage afforded to state volunteers through the PEPL Fund, please contact the Human Resources Office at 642-6549.
