Here are details of ten of the most common areas of danger in a church to help you consider what you might need to include in a buildings risk assessment. There is also an exercise to try and websites to check out. The ten are:
- Work undertaken by volunteers
- Children on site
- Work with children
- Fire precautions
- Church kitchens
- Slipping and tripping
- Ventilation, heating, lighting, sanitary facilities, etc.
- Isolated workers
- Special risks
A normal-practice risk assessment has five columns for each identified risk covering the potential hazard, its likelihood of occurring, its potential impact, action being taken to minimise these, and the person responsible for action/review.
