Positive Learning, Positive Life

Health & Safety Policy

Rationale

The Livity School believes that the prevention of incidents,, accidents, injury or loss is essential to the efficient organisation of the school and takes all such steps as are reasonably practicable to meet its responsibility for providing a safe & healthy working & learning environment for staff, pupils and visitors.

Health & Safety is everybody's responsibility and we must all be continuously aware of our own safety and the safety of others in everything we do. It is the responsibility of all staff to notify the Head Teacher of any health & safety issues and to remain vigilant while on the school premises. Health & Safety standards should enhance the potential range of activities and not curtail them.

Purpose

The purpose of this policy is to provide all Governors, staff, and visitors with the necessary guidance to ensure that The Livity School remains a safe and healthy working & learning environment.

All staff have a personal responsibility to ensure their own health & safety at work and health and safety of others who may be affected by their acts or omissions including pupils, visitors and contractors.

Health & Safety Law

In addition to common law and contractual duties discussed above, staff have responsibilities as employees under the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974.

The Livity School operates its Health and Safety  Policy within the guidance and acknowledgement of the Local Authority's Health and Safety document.
