Risk management is about identifying the potential for damage or loss that you face and taking appropriate action to control, avoid, minimise or eliminate the potential impact.
The team at the Church of Scotland Insurance Services Ltd are here to provide you with advice in this respect in conjunction with a number of insurer partners with whom we work closely.
We are able to provide help and guidance with matters relating to Health and Safety and offer support regarding the conduct of Fire Risk Assessments. Please also have a look at our church 'Guidelines Page' which provides a great deal of useful risk management information.
In addition one of our insurer partners Aviva, have made available their online ‘Risk Management Solutions’ portal which gives you access to:
- Aviva Risk Management Advice - which contains over 200 useful risk management fact sheets and templates. Security and Fire protection advice specifically for churches is available online.
- News Feed - The latest risk management news uploaded daily
- Preferred Supplier Scheme - Security and safety services available at significantly discounted rates from our carefully vetted suppliers.
Whatever the activity, it’s very important that you consider undertaking an appropriate risk assessment as this forms part of your health and safety policy. Additional useful sources of information are the Health and Safety Executive website and the Church of Scotland website.
