Experts in Health & Safety

Health and safety legislation applies to places of worship, as it does to any other public building, and church leaders are responsible for ensuring compliance.

If you struggle to give health and safety the time it deserves and are worried you might be falling short of requirements, WorkNest can:

  • Fulfil the role of one your competent persons, as required under health and safety law
  • Offer friendly, collaborative, solutions-focused support from a named Health & Safety Consultant who not only understands risk management but your environment and culture
  • Work with you to identify practical solutions that mitigate risk whilst also being appropriate to your religious setting
  • Assess and help you to manage common risks such as fire, old and borrowed buildings, and vulnerable people
  • Provide you with a tailored church health and safety policy setting out your arrangements for keeping employees, volunteers and visitors safe
  • Help to strengthen your claims defensibility and give you confidence in your compliance.

Crucially, we are not here to find fault; our goal is to work with you to ensure you are providing a safe environment, meeting your responsibilities and fulfilling your duty of care.
