Health and Safety in Schools and Colleges
Health and Safety in schools and colleges offer unique management challenges that Britrisk are used to dealing with on a daily basis. Our Safety consultants are best placed to help you navigate through the legislation that affects you and your school.
A Risk Assessment “enables”. It should never be a barrier.
In addition to normal workplace safety there are a range of issues surrounding the care of children and students when you are looking at health and safety in schools.
However we also understand that teaching staff can feel exposed to the risk of both civil and criminal legislation and as a consequence also feel highly vulnerable, but with a little helping hand you can make small changes that will have a big impact, read our case study here about a school that did just that.
‘The improvements recommended by Britrisk were well targeted, incisive and effective. Their brief but comprehensive presentation to our governing body was a dramatic demonstration of how their system makes safety issues a lot easier to understand and manage.’
