Academy health and safety assessments
Keeping health and safety out of the limelight at your academy
At this time of year, academies are being very publicly judged on the number of top A-Level and GCSE passes attained by their students.
If you are part of an academy or MAT management team and health and safety is one of your responsibilities, you may be forgiven for feeling unappreciated that parents and the media don’t rate your establishment on the results of your last health and safety assessment as well; people just assume that your buildings, equipment and estate are all safe.
However, you and your team work hard to ensure that students and staff have a safe environment to work and study in. When it comes to health and safety, you aren’t even as good as your last assessment, you have to maintain those high standards continually. You deserve a little more recognition – or perhaps you would prefer some additional specialist support.
Specialist outside help for maintaining academy health and safety standards
Managing health and safety properly takes up a large amount of valuable time. Using a specialist company, like Surveyors to Education, could free up time and give you the peace of mind knowing that experts are on the case to ensure compliance.
