 Holiday Safety

Download the Presentation
Sleigh bells ring are you listening…  It’s the holiday season and like it or not we are entering one of the busiest times of the year.  Is your church prepared for the holiday season?  Holiday programs often involve the building of backdrops, stage sets, special costumes or just decorating the church.  This is an important time of the year to be sure the best safety practices are followed so your congregation can celebrate the season without injury or a tragic accident. 

 Preparing for Cold Weather
It may not seem that way right now, but fall and winter cold will soon wrap itself around areas of the country that expect such weather and some that do not. With that cold will come water damage caused by frozen pipes UNLESS we properly prepare our facilities and establish processes that will prevent these occurrences. This free webinar will focus on ways you can winterize your church facility and avoid these costly losses.

 Fire Safety - When the Alarm Sounds
You hear them coming, with sirens and lights -- those selfless servants and heroes, the men and women who we call fire rescue personnel.   This coming month (October) our safety focus is on fire prevention awareness.  Learn how you can help make your church and school a fire safe facility.  The actions you take today, may save a life - when the alarm sounds.

 Church Media Risks
As churches and church organizations look for ways to communicate with membership and reach out to their communities, media can be an effective tool to connect with members and customers. With these opportunities come some inherent risks. In order to succeed with media we need to be prepared to understand and address risks such as cyber security and protecting your organization's reputation.

Preventing Fraud and Embezzlement
When engaging in ministries involving children and youth, no single topic is more important than proper SUPERVISION.  Whether it be in Sabbath School, Pathfinders, mission trips, academy music tours or simply the down time before and after church activities, proper supervision is the best line of defense in minimizing the risks to our children and youth.  

Best Practices in Supervision of Children and Youth
When engaging in ministries involving children and youth, no single topic is more important than proper SUPERVISION.  Whether it be in Sabbath School, Pathfinders, mission trips, academy music tours or simply the down time before and after church activities, proper supervision is the best line of defense in minimizing the risks to our children and youth.  

This Webinar will focus on supervision best practices in a variety of settings.  It will also touch on the need for proper training and oversight of those who have been tasked with supervisory responsibilities.

Transportation
Download the presentation (PDF)
Many volunteers and Church employees operate Church owned, leased, rental or personal vehicles as part of their job or duties for the Church. We are expected to operate vehicles safely to prevent accidents which may result in injuries or property loss. The church understands that the use of automobiles is an essential part of our ministry and as such each of us as safety officers must be committed to promoting a heightened level of safety awareness and responsible driving behavior for those who undertake this important task.
 




Planning Maintenance
Visit the Planning Maintenance page for the seasonal maintenance guide
Maintenance is work done on a routine basis to protect users of a building and to assure a long life for the building.  Many accidents, such as slips, trips, and falls happen because of overlooked hazards or as a result of poor quality maintenance.  A preventive maintenance program, designed to correct each problem as it occurs, is more cost effective than waiting until the problem reaches a magnitude where special contracts and large expenditures are required to correct it.

Mission Trip Planning
A mission trip for many people is the opportunity of a lifetime. It is an opportunity to learn about other cultures, create lasting change in the lives of those they meet, and to experience a transformation in the participant's own life.

Taking a group of people on a mission trip, to another country, outside of one's comfort zone, requires very careful planning. Planning includes everything from deciding what skills are needed to calculating cost for travel, food, lodging, and other resources…planning ahead will make your trip a great success! Join us to discuss tips for planning a safe and successful mission trip.
