Risk Assessment for Schools




Online Risk Assessment Training for Schools

For any school with five or more employees it is mandatory that a risk assessment is completed and recorded, Ofsted also request that risk assessments are carried out. The assessments will identify any significant hazards and associated risks that are present in the school environment, with the identification of sensible and proportionate control measures to eliminate or reduce the risk presented.

The process of undertaking a risk assessment can prove to be a complicated and difficult which can lead to critical safety issues being incorrectly recorded or identified. This is why we have developed a highly interactive risk assessment e-learning course that uses a combination of animation, video, text, audio and images to provide vital awareness on risk assessments.
