Health and Safety Package for Schools​

The Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 places a legal duty on all schools to safeguard staff and students. Ark has developed a specific Health and Safety Package for Schools​ to help you meet those obligations.

Health and Safety Package for Schools

Under the Safety, Health & Welfare at Work Act 2005, your school has many onerous and wide-ranging legal obligations.  The lack of available time, expertise, and focus can really impact your school’s ability to meet its duty of care to students and staff.

Our experienced team has worked with hundreds of schools addressing their specific risks. Our expertise and proven methodology will ensure your school can meet its legal obligations and discharge its duty of care in a practical manner.

School Health & Safety

Stage 1: Health & safety audit

The audit is an essential part of ensuring your school’s health and safety systems are on the right track. Our audit process provides a thorough review of your school and offers a practical approach to help you meet your obligations under the legislation.

Stage 2: Policy & Resource Pack

Under the Safety Health and Welfare at Work Act from 2005, schools are required to have an up to date health and safety statement as well as completed risk assessments – which we will prepare. In addition, we’ll also prepare appropriate resources and train school leaders and post-holders on the pack. 

Stage 3: Staff Training

Staff training then takes place via our Learning Platform – The Ark Academy™ designed specifically to bring staff through their individual Health & Safety responsibilities in everyday teaching and learning.

Stage 4: Retained Support

When you need advice or support how long do other service providers wait before coming back to you? We provide same-day advice and assistance to you for up to 12 months as standard (Monday to Friday 9am – 5pm).
