The Right Tools for the Job

The WHS Toolkit for Congregations helps Presbyteries, Congregations and other Synod entities to set-up and run a Work, Health Safety System to provide a safe system of work and a safe location of work to meet your obligations and responsibilities under the Work Health and Safety (WHS) legislation.

Workflow Process and Objectives

The Toolkit outlines “what we need to do now” including adopting and prominently displaying a WHS policy and a “Return to Work” program and poster.

It includes checklists covering processes and objectives to establish an Emergency Plan, First Aid, Volunteers, Contractors, Workplace Inspection, Consultation, Training and Plant Operations and Material Handling.

After completing these checklist you will have identified risks in the workplace and able to implement strategies to control the risks.   

The WHS Toolkit for Congregations has been developed specifically for Presbyteries and Congregations.
