Schools, Universities and other educational institutions face unique Health and Safety challenges. As places that serve young people and children, often including vulnerable people, ensuring their safety and minimising the risks posed to their health is imperative.
Younger people can be impulsive and behave in ways that would be unexpected in adults – therefore a thorough, detail-led and proactive approach to the management of Health and Safety in the Education sector is needed. As well as this, being able to respond quickly to incidents and near-misses is vital, in order to ensure students are able to learn in a safe environment and with minimal risks to their health or wellbeing.
Notify software provides those responsible for the management of Health and Safety in Educational institutions the ability to report, track and manage incidents, improve processes and procedures and ensure compliance.
Educational establishments, including primary, secondary, further and higher education, have the potential to face numerous challenges when managing their Health and Safety. Different lessons and subjects, from food technology to physical education and from chemistry to engineering all involve varied and unique risks to staff and students, as well as the additional risks and safety management that is required to keep people safe on campus. Thorough risk assessment for each activity; regular inspection and auditing of all equipment and procedures; and detailed record-keeping of all incidents and near misses are required in order to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the students, staff and visitors of your educational establishment.
Notify software offers a solution to managing these challenges, enabling you to digitally oversee your processes, carry out a risk assessment with improved efficiency, and enhance reporting and management processes.
