Environmental Risk And Compliance Management For The Education Sector
We work directly with a number of schools and academies as well as specific education professional services providers such as Strictly Education Ltd, who offer guidance to the schools’ governing body about capital works and day to day maintenance issues.
As experts in Legionella management, we have the competence to deal with all matters relating to the hygiene of plant and equipment and Legionella risk assessments, to control the spread of Legionella and ensuring the safety of the children and staff. As a specialist in our field, we provide hands-on operational support, which allows the school to remain focused on the children, teaching and learning.
Whether we work directly for a school or as a support partner, our approach is to send a familiar face to undertake the services, so that we get to know the school well, as well as giving us the opportunity to build up excellent relationships with the site maintenance team based on honesty and trust.
Our office-based administration team support the management of the contract, offering an effective and robust process for maintaining audit trails and compliance for works and maintenance, and records for buildings from start to finish. Our system is fully auditable, presenting a detailed and clear picture of our activity that can be shared with governors and school business managers alike.
