Health and Safety in schools is important because you're not only dealing with employees but students too. School environments are always changing but Health and Safety Responsibilities will always remain an important factor in all educational institutions and everyone in the education system must do what is necessary to keep pupils and staff safe and healthy.
Every industry has their own unique sets of incidents, accidents and hazards and health and safety in school has elements of low and high risks. Apart from the obvious essentials, such as fire escape routes, emergency exits, safety signage and regular drills, there are a number of hazards that are sometimes ignored.
