“If you build a new house, you must construct a guard rail around your roof to avoid being culpable in the event someone should fall from it.” 

Deuteronomy 22:8

The Uniting Church in Australia is committed to providing safe places where people are cared for, nurtured and sustained.

In addition to the online resources and links available on this site, information sessions, training and workshops can be provided to assist presbyteries and congregations of the Queensland Synod better understand their work health and safety responsibilities and obligations.

We strongly recommend presbytery and congregation leaders review and familiarise themselves with the information that can be found on the following links.

The Building Fire Safety Regulation 2008 imposes significant responsibilities upon building owners, occupiers and managers to develop fire safety plans and conduct training of all paid and voluntary workers in a building.

The Queensland Fire and Emergency Services website has documents and templates (including fire and evacuation plans) to assist owner/occupiers in managing their compliance with the Fire and Rescue Service Act 1990 and the Building Fire Safety Regulation 2008.

When developing a fire and evacuation plan for a congregation it is recommended that a plan for low occupancy buildings is completed by congregations with fewer than 100 persons attending your largest weekly gathering and a high occupancy plan for congregations with more than 100 regular attendees.

The following links will assist you in developing a fire and evacuation plan.
