Self-Inspection Safety Checklist

Accidents, fires, thefts — so many of the tragedies that occur at worship centers can be avoided with a few simple precautions. The Self-Inspection Safety Checklist is designed to help you prevent or reduce property, liability, theft, workers’ compensation and vehicle losses. We have organized the checklist to correspond with areas of concern — kitchens, furnace rooms, outside areas, etc. — to make it especially easy to use as you walk through your facility. Along with the checklist, we suggest you keep a calendar that notes the dates you do your inspections and includes a timetable for improvements.
