Risk Assessment

Risk assessment forms the basis of outlining a school or academy's commitment to the protection and safety of pupils, staff and visitors. Risk assessment supports safeguarding in its widest context. This includes all areas of on-site provision, educational visits and the Care of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH).

The Risk Assessment (including COSHH) training course is a key element of our safeguarding suite and is designed to ensure all staff and volunteers in schools and academies have a clear understanding of the purpose of risk assessment, how this is applicable to their practice and their responsibilities in meeting legislative and duty of care requirements.

As with all elements of our safeguarding suite, the course offers an accredited CPD solution to ensure provision is safe, secure and there is a culture of vigilance.
