Online Form to report hazards or incidents

Groups using our church buildings are expected to report any hazards they find and report any incidents and accidents that happen while they are using the building.

Your congregation may currently have physical forms to this. eg Hazard Form, Incident Form

Physical forms can work really well, but in some cases it can be a hassle. For example, if your group meets on a Friday night, you have an accident, and then you have to wait until Monday to go to the office to fill in a form during your lunch break.

We have put together an online template form which you could use. Using this form, any group using the church building can report a hazard or incident 24 hours a day. Every time, someone fills in the form online, it will go into a spreadsheet, You can even set it up, so your Health and Safety rep or office manager gets an email to say there has been a new entry.

View the spreadsheet. 

To get your own version, click on the spreadsheet, make a copy of, and then edit the form. add your own Church name. We suggest you add a link to the form from your church website.
