Health and Safety in Further Education

Many further education colleges consist of multiple buildings having part-time teaching staff and students.  Premises may be occupied out of normal teaching hours as rooms and grounds are utilised by external parties.  Health and safety may be managed by department heads, but overall day-to-day responsibility remains with the college principal and centralized systems are the key to proving compliance.

Rarely can legal compliance be achieved by a series of one-off actions (for example, to tackle specific hazards). It requires a sustained, systematic and organised approach, revisiting risk assessments, checking, acting on new information. Although responsibility for health and safety cannot be delegated, colleges do not have to operate on their own. External support, delivered by expert advisors can help to overcome concerns and import good practice.

What sort of health and safety support will a FE / HE College need?

To be successful, colleges need to be ‘risk led’ not ‘law led’. They need to focus on their most significant risks, prioritising their efforts and tailoring their health and safety measures accordingly, using the law and guidance as a framework to help achieve consistent and effective control of risks.

Aiming for high standards of health and safety is the right thing to do and is not just about legal compliance. Achieving and proving excellence in the way health and safety risks are managed have massive benefits for any educational institution. A strong health and safety culture, pays for itself many times over in preventing injuries and lost staff time.

Safety should be a continuous planned process, an integral part of the management of any college. The organisation should have clear policies, an understanding of the main stakeholders involved with health safety, clear plans and monitoring mechanisms.
