Throughout our years of experience working with many schools across New Zealand we understand the need for simple and effective process. We’ve developed systems that reflect the dynamic and changing environment that is education in New Zealand.
It’s without a doubt schools are vulnerably exposed to health and safety risks and hazards. From technology classes to playgrounds to education outside the classroom, the potential risks and hazards associated with the learning environment are endless.
Every school must have a strong focus on health and safety. Whether it’s kindergartens, primary schools, secondary schools or high schools, they must ensure they are meeting their legal obligation of keeping everyone involved with the school healthy and safe, so far as is reasonably practicable.
According to the HSWA 2015, the Board of Trustees is a PCBU who is primarily responsible for the health and safety of everyone involved with the school. They have a duty to put good health and safety management in place.
