Health and Safety

It is recommended that every charge has a Health and Safety statement and carries out a periodic risk assessment.

Health and Safety Guidance Notes

Individual Charges of the Scottish Episcopal Church are generally considered to be distinct employers. These guidance notes contain a form of basic policy document which has been designed to fit the minimum requirements. It largely consists of a statement of general principles which Vestries should be following. Church premises are, or should be, low-risk environments, and health and safety requirements (particularly risk assessments) should be straightforward enough and a matter of common sense.
