Risk Assessments for Schools
Your school has an obligation to conduct detailed risk assessments in line with Section 19 of the Safety, Health & Welfare at Work Act 2005.
A risk assessment is concerned with identifying the hazard, then estimating the severity and likelihood of harm arising from such a hazard. The school can then put in place control measures to minimise the risk or weigh up whether he or she has taken enough precautions to prevent harm.
How is one carried out?
An risk assessment comprises of Walk-through inspection of the school including technical rooms, sports facilities, boilers rooms etc. A review of the current control measures in place is carried out to assess the risk to students and staff.

We use the H.S.A.’s Templates for Schools when preparing the Risk Assessments. This large document runs to a minimum of 250 pages, but we have developed a proprietary system to ensure that these templates can be completed quickly thus satisfying the school’s obligation.
