Saint Swithins Church - Parish of Walcot

Health and Safety

For the last 20 years, which included the two-phased restoration project, we have enjoyed a period free of any major accidents or incidents. With such a record it is easy to take safety for granted, which reinforces the need to maintain vigilance through applying a formal approach to avoid hurting ourselves and those we welcome through our doors. Our health & safety policy is our comprehensive statement of how will we do this, and seeks to apply the highest standards to the unique characteristics of our building and the way we use it.

We will continue to improve our approach to safety, and regularly review the risk assessments for our key activities. We welcome feedback and comments of all sorts to ensure our approach continues to be appropriate and effective. If you wish to make a comment, please email the office and mark it 'for the attention of Henry Brown, Health & Safety Officer'.
