Our Health & Safety Service includes
Health & Safety Audit
We provide an in-depth audit of the school's management of health & safety, benchmarked against the best practice set out by the HSE and in-line with the Department for Education requirements. This exercise will assess the scope and effectiveness of current arrangements and audit compliance.
Policy and Procedure
We draft and keep under review policies and procedures, including a School/Academy Health & Safety Policy and subsidiary policies such as Managing Contractors and Fire Management.
We carry out and document several management assessments of the risks in key areas. Our recommendations for improved control of risks in these areas are then set out in an Action Plan for the school.
When appropriate, we meet with the Heads of Department of the higher-risk, practical subjects to assess how safety is managed and provide advice. Our recommendations for improved risk control are set out in an Action Plan.
Access to a specialist advisor
We will assign you a Lead Consultant who is a specialist School Safety Adviser. They will be your primary contact for unlimited advice on any health & safety matter. All consultants have reached or exceed the level of graduate members of IOSH.

Health and Safety has always been a difficult area for us; we simply don't have the knowledge or expertise to carry out all the risk assessments ourselves. Judicium's down to earth approach and simple to read policies and documents are a refreshing change."
