An introduction to health and safety
For most churches, managing health and safety should not be complicated, costly or time consuming. Here are some tips and tools to help you get started.
How safe is your Methodist church? Risks at your church can cause damage or injury but self-assessment can help you identify and mitigate those risks.
A person injured on church grounds may try to make a compensation claim against the church. In extreme circumstances, where the church is found to be at significant fault, criminal prosecutions can also occur.
Managing health and safety effectively should be everyone’s responsibility but knowing where to begin can be a challenge. Using our self-assessment tool, you can identify key steps that address health and safety at your church.
A self-assessment will help you get started by identifying the steps you might need to take, or simply check the adequacy of what you have already done.
