Record keeping and risk management
How keeping a record of risk assessments, inspections and other risk management activity can help support your defence in the event of a claim against you.
Our new Risk Tracker helps independent schools to create a safer learning environment1.
The Risk Tracker goes beyond our initial risk survey and gives independent schools the ability to track improvements to health and safety as well as property risks. The Risk Tracker:
A risk management surveyor from our in-house team will assess your school and complete a risk survey with you2. Based on their observations, they provide a grade (A to E) for each type of risk your school might face factoring in both health and safety and property risks. This will highlight the areas where your school stands to improve the most.
We’ll provide information and clear actions on the improvements that need to be carried out, as well as some further recommendations to improve the risk grade going forward.
Our new report tracks the risk before and after risk improvement activity. You’ll be able to track the school’s progress against objectives and understand where you sit in relation to other independent schools in your peer group.
Education customers also have access to 'The Education Hub' to support ongoing risk management needs. Here you will find useful information ranging from staff training and health and safety advice, to easy to use forms and templates.
