Health and Safety for new groups

We've launched #DreamBigAtHome!

Our new lockdown website has hundreds of activities and games to do at home, weekly challenges to try and a regular programme of live workshops and events online, as well as information on how our groups can operate during the COVID-19 outbreak.


Health & Safety should not be an officious burden, but common sense. You should have sensible rules and practices in place for dealing with things such as hazardous substances, knives and gas. Food hygiene is also crucial and anyone responsible for providing food at Woodcraft events should have at least a basic understanding of things such a cross-contamination, safe storage of food, hand washing etc. This should be detailed on your risk assessments.

Read the Woodcraft Folk groups Health and Safety Policy, which includes a template risk assessment.
