What are the responsibilities of Schools and Universities towards Health and Safety?

The education sector has a wide range of safety regulations for schools to follow. Both public and private educational facilities need to follow comprehensive rules to protect staff and students. Regulations for school environments cover electricity, sanitation, building structure and many other factors, and these safety standards require proactive measures to maintain health and well-being in school facilities.

  • Put in place sensible approaches to health and safety, with clear policies that focus on the real risks.
  • Schools must assess risks and put in place proportionate control measures. Record details of risk assessments, the measures taken to reduce these risks and expected outcomes.
  • Make sure all the faculty and staff have the relevant information and training to manage risks on a day to day basis, including access to competent health and safety advice.

Why should you consider the Health and Safety in your organization?

Moral

  • Society expects every employer to demonstrate a correct attitude to health and safety to his workforce. It is unacceptable to place employees in situations where their health and safety is at risk.

Legal

  • There is a raft of legislation in place which states you must have competent safety assistance and provide a safe environment for workers and others that may be affected

Financial

  • There are significant prosecution fines for breaches of legislation, legal fees and civil litigation to consider. The damage to brand reputation alone can be irreversible.
