Uniting Church SA WHS Workshop for Church Councils (Urban East & Hills)

Hosted by Morialta Uniting Church on Thursday 18 February, 7.30pm -9.30pm

This workshop is specifically for church council members and has been designed to clarify the law surrounding Work, Health & Safety (WHS) and the Uniting Church. There will be time to look at church council members as “officers” and their responsibilites as well as examples of simple practical ways to help manage WHS in your congregation.

The workshop is being led by Wayne Booth (Uniting Church SA WHS Coordinator), with plenty of opportunity to ask those WHS questions you always wanted answered!

For more information or to book places, please contact Wayne by Monday 15 February at Turn on Javascript!
