Parish Committees and Coordinators/Advisers
We have proposed that Parishes consider establishing a sub-committee of the Pastoral or Finance Committee for the purpose of being a Health and Safety Committee.
We also recommend that parishes appoint a person to be a Health and Safety Coordinator/Adviser. Remember, the person will get support and training from us so they don’t need to be an expert – just someone with time to commit to the process.
