Snap, crackle and pop 


The snap of thunder, the crackle of ice, the pop of a firework – the winter months can be dramatic and exciting, but can also cause damage to your church property. The latest Baptist Insurance article focuses on protecting your church building in the winter months

 
BINS bad-weather


Don’t give bad weather the cold shoulder!

At Baptist Insurance, our claims data tells us that storm damage is often the reason for a loss. The best way to limit damage caused by wind and rain is good maintenance. Regularly check and clear gutters, gullies and drains of fallen leaves to reduce blockage and water build up. Replace missing or loose roof tiles sooner rather than needing to replace roof timbers later – a pair of binoculars is the easiest way to spot problems.
 
Keep everyone safe from slipping by ensuring there is at least one clear pathway and keep entrances and exits free of leaves, ice and obstacles. And secure fences and outdoor furniture. For more tips to being ready for winter, please visit: www.baptist-insurance.co.uk/badweather
 

Stay safe at your church bonfire and fireworks display

A bonfire and fireworks display can be a great way to bring new people into the church family and raise funds. However, if not properly planned and managed, it can result in accidents and injury. Here are a few tips for a safe and fun event:
 
  • Identify the risks and put measures in place to mitigate them.
  • Inform us and ensure your planned activity is covered.
  • Get written confirmation from the organiser of their Public and Employers’ Liability Insurance.
  • Make sure the bonfire and display are well away from buildings, trees and other hazards such as overhead cables.
  • Make sure your bonfire is well stacked and stable and will not fall to one side as it burns.
  • If you’re running your own display, keep fireworks in a metal box and take them out one at a time – replacing and firmly closing the lid each time.
  • Check the wind direction to make sure smoke does not drift across any main and busy roads.
