Health & Safety Policy for the United Reformed Church

Thames North Synod

A written Health and Safety policy is a document that outlines the safety measures and responsibilities in your Church. A written policy is a legal requirement in many situations, and is in any case, a recommendation for good practice. There is no set format for a Health and Safety Policy, but it should aim to provide a written commitment about how Health and Safety is being managed for the long term.

The Synod Resources Committee have appointed Health & Safety Consultants, Safety Security & Training (SST) Ltd, to provide a generic Health & Safety Policy and Risk Assessment templates for use by local churches, that are accessible via the Synod website. The purpose of these documents is to enable local churches to comply with the requirements of the various areas of Health and Safety, but it must not be assumed that you become compliant by merely completing the pro-formas. Those appointed as responsible for Health and Safety within each local congregation will undoubtedly require additional information, for which SST would be happy to provide a quotation. See contact details.

We would ask that Local churches respect the Copyright notice provided by SST.
