CSHW SA manages the Church’s work, health and safety HOWEVER, as paid workers and volunteers of the Church we all have a responsibility to protect our own health & safety at work and not to adversely affect the safety of others. Those who manage worksites have a responsibility to provide a safe environment and safe systems of work for all who work, study, visit and /or volunteer at their worksite.
