School Health And Safety Kent

School Health and Safety in schools is an essential aspect of day-to-day activities throughout the school.

And it most certainly effects every member of staff, from part-time Teaching Assistants, right up to the Head Teacher of the School.

Put simply, everyone working in a school needs to know how to keep themselves and the children safe.


Health and Safety is a lawful requirement

As you would expect, schools are heavily regulated when it comes to Health and Safety.

Which is why a Responsible Person with regard to Health and Safety matters is appointed.

If you are that appointed person, and you are reading this you will already know it is your duty to ensure that you keep on top of all your obligations in respect of Health and Safety for your school.

However, a busy workload one week can be all it takes for you to fall behind with your compliance.

As regulations are changed and updated numerous times a year, keeping track of how well your school is meeting its Health and Safety obligations can be a full-tie job in itself!

Which is why schools often appoint an independent Health and Safety Consultancy Services such as Risk Safety Services.


School Health And Safety Kent

School Health and Safety requires a focused approach to identify how everyday risks are managed.

To effectively maintain successful Health and Safety policies and procedures in schools you need to ensure that real risks are managed, without stifling the opportunities for learning experiences.

Sensible Health and Safety management should be straightforward but as a member of school staff, putting this into practise every day can difficult.

And remember, failing to meet your Health and Safety obligations puts students, teachers and visitors at risk of injury.


Safeguarding children in your school

Safeguarding is a term that describes the work and processes undertaken to minimise and manage the risks involved to vulnerable children.

Risk Safety Services offers a CPD-certified training course in this important area of Health and Safety, priced at just £35.

Designed in recognition of the human rights to be healthy, happy and treated well, regardless of race, age, gender or location, our training helps ensure you take care of the children attending your school.

When human rights are abused in some way, it is unlawful, therefore it is vital that guidelines, policies and procedures are followed to ensure the health and safety of the victim.

Our training course will assist you in understanding the many facts, figures and details surrounding the risk to children, as well as the types of abuse victims are subjected to.

This helps you to recognise the signs of abuse and key safeguarding legislations put in place to minimise the abuse of children.

The course is taught in the following modules:

  • Introduction to Safeguarding Children
  • Module 2: Types of Abuse
  • Module 3: How to Recognise the Signs of Abuse
