Responsibilities, planning and frequently asked questions.
Your responsibilities when organising and hosting an event
- Licensing legislation may apply
The church can be involved at the following three levels:
Managing health and safety at church events
- Planning for the event – the level of detail of this should be proportionate to the scale of the event and the degree of risk associated with it
- Planning for incidents and emergencies – so that you can respond promptly in an appropriate manner. Again, this will be dependent upon the level of risk presented by any event
- Managing the event so that it runs safely – here you may need to ensure adequate co-ordination of the activities; provide training for employees and volunteers; monitor the precautions you have put into place and so on.
