Health and Safety is nothing new. We can see some health and safety measures applied in the bible.
Deuteronomy 22: 8 (Amplified version)
When you build a new house, then you shall put a railing around your [flat] roof, so that no one may fall from there and bring guilt of blood upon your house.
The bible addresses health and safety. It’s a shame when we see churches get prosecuted for health and safety breaches. A good foundation for health and safety in the new testament is ”love worketh no ill to his neighbour” (Romans 13: 10).
We can see our Lord Jesus Christ also apply crowd control measures in the bible to protect Himself.
Mark 3: 8
And he spake to his disciples, that a small ship should wait on him because of the multitude, lest they should throng him.
And He told His disciples to have a little boat in [constant] readiness for Him because of the crowd, lest they press hard upon Him and crush Him.
If our Lord Jesus Christ applied crowd control measures, what thinks we can behave anyhow and get away from it?
In addition to this, we now have laws in the land that we are called to obey and comply with.
Are you a church or a business owner? It’s time to take the Health and Safety laws of the land seriously. If you are based in the UK and require support or advice, you can contact Safe and Sound Food Solutions, and they will be willing to advice you.
