Office Safety for Schools




Online Office Safety Training Course for Schools

At first glance the office environment may appear to be the safest environment in a school. However, school office safety statistics have highlighted that many unnecessary and avoidable accidents occur in school offices everyday, perhaps due to people’s lack of awareness of basic safety principles.

Our school office safety e-learning module, provides an in depth guide to the hazards and risks posed by today’s busy school office environment.  Particular focus is given to slips and trips, fire, DSE and manual handling, which contribute the most to compromise safety in the office.
