Official policies and announcements

Before any activity, participants should be taught safety practices dealing with the activity. If a serious injury does occur, take immediate first aid action, including contacting emergency medical services and appropriate authorities. Also report any property damage. Notify local priesthood authorities as soon as possible, explain what happened and request any assistance that may be needed. With an accident or injury, activity leaders should express concern and understanding to all parties involved but make no commitments on behalf of the Church. Leaders should cooperate fully with local authorities.

Priesthood leaders should report all serious accidents and injuries to the Risk Management Division of the Finance and Records Department at Church Headquarters. Risk Management will consult with Church legal counsel if a claim against the Church appears likely. To contact the Risk Management Division telephone (801) 240-4049 or Telex 170416.- Activities Committee Handbook, p. 6
