RoSPA to unveil new school safety programme

6th February 2014 | Health and Safety Signs

The Education Show, to be held at the Birmingham NEC from March 20th-22nd, will see a visit from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA). The group will be there to unveil a new safety assessment programme for UK schools.

Members of RoSPA will be on hand to distribute safety advice, and promote the charity's SchoolSafe programme. This is a method of assessment that awards schools a GCSE-style grade based on how well they manage safety procedures.

SchoolSafe looks at the physical safety issues of a school, as well as how well dangers are managed with methods like fire alarms and safety signage. It rates schools based on how safely they teach, and how well students are taught about risk.

David Rushton, head of education and leisure at RoSPA, said: "Helping schools and colleges to ‘teach safely’ as well as ‘teach safety’ is essential if we are to equip the citizens of tomorrow with the skills and knowledge to recognise and manage risks in a positive way."

RoSPA will be exhibiting in Hall 3, Stand A72, at the Education Show in March.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801690671-ADNFCR
