In accordance with the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and Management of Health and Safety Regulations 1999, all schools must recognise their responsibility for providing and maintaining safe and healthy conditions for pupils, personnel, and visitors – and so they do.
But this doesn’t mean that all schools have adopted a positive health and safety culture (which is fundamental to effective health and safety management).
Why? Because a positive health and safety culture requires constant attention, which also requires time that you and your colleagues are unlikely to have to spare. Which is why we’ve developed School Health and Safety (www.schoolhealthandsafety.co.uk).
School Health and Safety is a website providing practical, time-saving guidance and support materials covering: risk assessments, job descriptions, questionnaires, maintenance records, report forms and health and safety legislation, training, audits, inspections, checklists, action plans and development plans.
If you would like to see some of our guidance and support materials, just click here and you’ll be able to download a total of eight documents completely free of charge.
