Allianz Hot Topic – Primary School Risk Assessments

by Martin McKeogh | 1 min read

September 8th, 2021

We often get questions regarding how often a safety statement has to be updated or when do schools have to do risk assessments. The Health and Safety Authority (HSA) advises that this should be done on an annual basis or indeed as and when there are changes to your business/workplace. Returning to school and preparing for a new year is obviously very busy but in reality it’s probably the most appropriate time to look at your safety statement and risk assessments. Things are in their place, any school building works are hopefully completed, pupils and maybe some staff have changed, and so may have their needs.

In order to support schools and try ease the burden, Allianz have created a series of helpful videos detailing common hazards we identify when conducting risk reviews of primary schools. We have also created this helpful PDF, Allianz Primary School Risk Assessment, which includes all the information from the videos and additional tips regarding documenting your risk assessments.

As always, feel free to contact your Local Allianz Representative if you have any queries or need our assistance.
