People Safety & Liability

Your first concern is to provide a safe place for worship for your family and your guests, and a safe place for your employees to work.  And while you conduct important ministries, you wish to protect your church from claims for injuries that occur despite your best intentions.  In this section we will also cover Workers Compensation, OSHA and workplace safety

In Volume 1 of our Loss Control Manual, we identify a comprehensive role for the Head Usher, whose duties are extended to the safety of all buildings and grounds. In the church environment, conditions which are hazards to the public are often the same for employees.

Training of employees is essential to success.  Pay attention to the Related Link to Training Resources and explanation of how to gain access in Related Documents below.  Churches, as employers and small businesses, also need to understand the basics of Workers Compensation law and benefits, which vary by state.
