Education Facilities

We can help schools, academies, colleges and universities manage their health and safety more effectively.

Why should you ask us to help you review your school, academy or university’s approach to health and safety?

Above all else we will give you peace of mind.  We know how to make sure your facility is fully compliant with all of the relevant legislation, that all of the required risk assessments have been carried out and that you have all of the processes, guides and checklists in place to make sure your students, your staff and your visitors are as safe as possible.

We are able to do that because:

  • We have the professional experience you need. All of our health and safety experts are Chartered Health and Safety Practitioners.
  • We have the educational experience you need. We have worked with a wide range of universities, schools, colleges and academies.  Our team also includes a qualified teacher which gives us even more first-hand knowledge of the unique demands of the education sector.
  • We have the practical experience. We know how to apply our knowledge to any educational facility and turn that advice into straightforward solutions that will protect your students and staff and help prevent accidents occurring in the future.

Running a school, academy or university has never been as time consuming.  Your budget, timetable, teaching resources and facilities already place huge demands on your time and that is before you consider ensuring the welfare and wellbeing of your students and staff.

Despite time being at a premium, you cannot afford to let health and safety slip down the list, particularly given the new set of challenges dealing with COVID-19 has introduced.

You need to make sure you always provide a safe learning and pastoral environment for your students, staff and visitors.  If not, you could find your facility is unable to meet the requirements of your annual external inspection or even leave yourself open to prosecution from your local authority.  Claims may also be difficult to defend if you have not adopted the required approach to health and safety.

Our team has the expertise you require to analyse your current health and safety position.  We can support you with:

  • Developing your Risk assessments
  • Providing bespoke training
  • Your ability to deal with COVID-19 and being able to continue to educate
  • Subject specific issues, e.g. PE and Science
  • School trips
  • Fire safety
  • Compliance issues such as asbestos, gas safety, electricity and other facility areas
  • Violence within the workplace
  • Stress
  • Chemicals and hazardous materials (COSHH)
  • Grounds maintenance
  • Reporting accidents in an education setting
  • Control of contractors
  • Estate management

We can make the recommendations you need to follow to minimise potential risks and ensure your facility is fully compliant.  We will make sure using our advice is as easy as possible by prioritising the required actions and setting out a clear and manageable implementation plan.
