Here we focus on physical and building issues to identify any costs and liabilities the MAT shall be assuming once it takes possession of the new school site.
Areas covered in our MAT Due Diligence Audit
Site security measures
We review your fencing, CCTV, and access control measures.
We review if the school has a fixed wiring 5 year inspection.
Slips, trips & falls
We review if the school surfaces are suitable, are stairs constructed correctly (do they conform to regulations), are edges highlighted, are outside areas in suitable condition.
We review the school working environment via a window survey (do windows conform to the 1992 workplace regulations), and a Water management survey - are legionella controls adequate.
We review if school equipment maintained in accordance with PUWER regulations i.e. annual inspections. This includes equipment such as kitchen appliances, extraction systems, fume cupboards, LEV's in practical areas etc. If the school has electric gates, we review if are these serviced and maintained.
We review if there is a suitable and sufficient Fire risk assessment. Are there any outstanding improvement recommendations? To ascertain significant fire management issues we will complete our own fire risk assessment and our consultant will ask key questions.
We review if the school has an Asbestos Management survey? If so it will be reviewed to ensure there are no removal or recommended works that have not been completed.
Vehicles on site
We review if vehicles on site are properly i.e. are traffic calming measures or additional fencing/gates required.
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."
