Incident Reporting
Incident reporting, incident investigation, and incident registers. It is all a simple process to help us track what accidents and mishaps happen and see if we can't stop them happening again. 

Incident reporting is in addition to any insurance liability reporting process.

Asbestos Management

  The Methodist Church of New Zealand has a simple 3 stage asbestos management plan for everyone, and Stage 1 should be completed now if you haven't done yours already! 

The aim of asbestos management planning is to ensure that we don't activate an asbestos risk; that we don't make asbestos dust that puts people at long term risk. 
Remember to send your completed asbestos management stages through to the national register via email

Emergency Response Plans


An emergency response plan is the "who does what" if something happens. Such as fire, earthquake, accident and so on.
Most of our buildings will also require an evacuation scheme approved by Fire and Emergency NZ, and we need to hold regular evacuation drills.
All templates have been updated to align with the Fire and Emergency NZ Evacuation Regulations 2018.
