Occupational Health & Safety

Church facilities and worship centres are workplaces and we are committed to providing a safe and healthy workplace for all occupants, such as employees, residents, clients, congregation members, visitors, contractors and volunteers.

Below you will find a comprehensive list of workplace policies, procedures and checklists.

Contractor and consultant safety management  

All Contractors or Consultants must be pre-qualified and have completed our Linksafe online safety management induction before starting work at any UCA property. 

This manages risk (as reasonably possible) to ensure Contractors and Consultants are responsible for their health and safety. 

Each person who is employed by the Contractor or Consultant will receive their induction via their employer and all Contractors and Consultants must be pre-qualified as preferred suppliers to the Church.

The induction provides a robust way to deal with compliance, creating a safer environment for UCA employees, volunteers, contractors, congregation members and visitors. It also reduces the administration for local projects.

The induction does not apply to major projects, where the principal contractor manages the site. In this instance, the OH&S commitments are made through the major works building contract.  

In the Related Documents section below, you will find information on UCA and Contractor/Consultant obligations.

Good contract management ensures both parties meet their respective obligations as efficiently and effectively as possible.
