Health & safety compliance in a school


Stoneferry Primary School wanted a health and safety partner that would provide straightforward guidance of how they needed to manage their buildings and activity safely.


Sewell spent time with the school to gain a thorough understanding of their current status. This included an analysis of policies and procedures, audits of buildings and grounds and a review of health and safety management


A refreshed, simplified health and safety policy was produced. The revised document set out clear objectives, responsibilities
and action plans, which included:

• Planned preventative maintenance and statutory checks
• Electrical safety
• Fire safety
• Training policy
• Incident and accident reporting and investigation
• Lone working
• Risk assessments
• Visitor safety
• Work equipment

"I'm really impressed with the support from Sewell. They've helped me clearly understand where we're at with health and safety compliance and how we can raise the bar. The input and support has been fantastic."
