Safety and Safe Conduct

The Insurance Board is an excellent resource for churches in many areas relating to safety and safe conduct. Visit their website for access to a wealth of topics via articles, recorded webinars, downloadable booklets and more.  The Insurance Board provides information, consultation and programs that enable churches to prevent loss before it happens, and provide a safe place for worship and ministry.

Some of the resources you will find on the Insurance Board website include:

  • Resources for church safety, including addressing active shooter preparedness
  • Safe conduct resources, including the SafeConduct Workbench
  • Safety in and around your church property
  • And much more

You’re sure to find helpful information for your church on the Insurance Board website.
