School Risk Assessment
School Risk Assessment
The Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 requires that all schools must have an adequate health and safety system in place. Having a school risk assessment is a legal obligation for every school. We can provide specialist and tailored assistance to ensure a suitable and sufficient school risk assessment at your school.
Following The Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005, UK law requires that; all employers, including schools have an understanding of the risks and health and safety in schools. Different governing bodies will have differing requirements for risk assessments. We offered a tailored service which will ensure that you fully comply with health and safety law. If you are unsure on what you may need, give us a call today.
The responsibility of ensuring that a school risk assessment is carried out varies depending on the type of school. Typically the responsibility will lie with the Headteacher in a Community or Voluntary school. In Academies, the governors act as the employer. Current legislation requires a school risk assessment to be carried out at every school. Failure to do so may result in heavy fines and even prosecution. Therefore, it is absolutely essential that you undertake a thorough school risk assessment to ensure you comply with HSE standards.
