Health and Safety

 The Health and Safely of all who worship, work or visit any of the Parish properties is a responsibility we all have for each other.  We have policy,  guidance and risk assessments not only because of our legal responsibilities but also because of our duty to care for others in the eyes of the Lord.  The documents listed below should be read in conjunction with the Parish Health And Safety Policy document.  If there should be any doubt, or ambiguity, the Parish policy document takes precedence. 

The documents contained here are divided into those that are for guidance (such as Hazard Review Checklists) and information that may be of interest to all who seek further information but Responsible Person List most particularly the for the respective areas. The next section includes the Risk Assessments and forms that are intended to be a resource for those who are undertaking or organising activities.
