Health and Safety for Schools


We help schools to manage safety 

Uncertain about health and safety compliance, fire risk or statutory safety duties? Let us help

We know how busy School Business Managers are. Having responsibility for a broad portfolio of tasks in school management, finance, premises, HR, and health & safety SBMs are busy people. Of all the tasks, the one responsibility that is life critical is safety.

School Business Managers tell us that safety is often the one area of their role that they lose sleep over. They are aware that certain areas of statutory compliance are not being attended too, possibly due to a lack of time or critical safety know how. JCH Safety can help with this.

JCH Safety have been working with schools for years. We understand school environments, different subject specific risks and the differing needs of children. We work with a variety of schools and colleges in both the public and private sectors. As a result we are experienced in helping schools with health and safety.

We consult to school leaders on all aspects of compliance helping our clients to achieve their statutory obligations. These range from premises risk assessments to property safety, from fire risk assessments to fire safety training.

JCH Safety provide the following safety services to schools:

  • Fire risk assessments
  • Fire evacuation plans
  • Fire marshal ‘sweep search’ training
  • Assistance with statutory compliance
  • Risk assessments
  • Safety audits
  • Premises inspections

School Business Managers need help with safety audits, managing safety compliance, preparing risk assessments, statutory health and safety training and fire risk assessments. Why not let a Chartered Health and Safety Consultant support you?

How does it work?

As a small safety consultancy, you will always work with our lead safety consultant, who is highly trained in both safety and fire risk management. Third party accredited by the Occupational Safety and Health Consultants Register and by The institute of Fire Safety Managers, you can be assured you will be in safe hands.

Our dedicated and personal safety services allow us to build up a detailed knowledge of your school. This allows us to really support your organisation. We can provide our services on a one-off basis; through term contracts; for annual fixed price project fee; or for specific tasks, such as carrying out a fire risk assessment.

Our fees are highly competitive but more than that, we provide exceptional value for money for expert safety advice.
