5 1.4 Occupational Health and Safety Policy Occupational Health and Safety Policy Aylesford School and Sixth Form College is aware that operating its business has significant health and safety risks. It is therefore essential that all parties concerned with the operation of the school business take appropriate steps to protect the personnel from harm.

To educate and train our employees and students in safe working practices. To ensure compliance with relevant health and safety legislation and other requirements related to our operations. To set and achieve our health and safety objectives and targets. 2.0 ORGANISATION The Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 and accompanying legislation states that employers, persons in charge of premises and employees all have specific health and safety duties and responsibilities.

The documented OH&S management procedures are listed in Appendix E. This manual shows the relationship between the OH&S Management System and OHSAS 18001: (The section 4.0 of this manual corresponds to OHSAS 18001: 2007 Section 4). 3.2 Implementation and Maintenance It is recognised that documenting the OH&S management system is only the first step towards fully implementing its requirements. For this reason the Headteacher will arrange for all new and existing personnel to be briefed on the requirements of the OH&S Management System and ensure full compliance. The effectiveness of the implementation is measured through on-going internal audits and inspection of the OH&S management system requirements. Where implementation is deemed inadequate then steps are taken to resolve the situation in a timely manner. The OH&S management system as a whole will be reviewed during regular management review meetings where the completeness and effectiveness of the system and any steps necessary to improve it are discussed and actioned. Whenever the OH&S management system is changed the Site Manager will make all relevant personnel aware of the new or revised systems and monitor them to ensure that they are implemented effectively.

10 4.0 Occupational Health and Safety Management System 4.1 General Requirements Aylesford School has established this OH&S Management Manual, integrated procedures and forms to enable the implementation of an OHSAS 18001:2007 compatible OH&S management system. As an organisation the following steps have been taken to ensure compliance:- a) All requirements of OHSAS 18001:2007 have been specified within this document to ensure that all personnel concerned with its operation are aware of the requirements. b) The Headteacher through the work of the Site Manager as a competent person shall ensure that the OH&S management system is fully implemented by all personnel. c) Regular management review meetings will be held to review the implementation of the requirements and identify any actions that are required to maintain and improve the system. The scope to which this OH&S management system will be applied is defined as all operations which it conducts at and from the address stated in section Occupational Health and Safety Policy The company s OH&S policy is documented in section 1.4 and is designed to reflect the health and safety needs and responsibilities of the School s activities. In particular the policy indicates the organisation s commitment to prevent harm (including injury and ill health) to all parties affected by the company s operations. The Headteacher ensures that the policy is made known to all personnel including persons working under the control of the company and is available to interested parties upon request. 4.3 OH&S Management System Elements Page 10 of 15

11 4.4 Planning Hazard Identification, Risk Assessment and Determining Controls The Headteacher shall ensure that all hazards associated with its activities are assessed for risk so that precautions can be identified and actioned before work commences.

The management review meeting minutes are communicated to the Full Governors Committee and other relevant parties requiring knowledge of the relevant legal requirements Objectives and Programme Aylesford School will set out and review its health and safety objectives and targets on a regular basis within the health and safety programme section of the management review meeting. Details of program dates and responsibilities will be defined. The health and safety objectives will be aimed at relevant functions and levels within the business. When setting objectives and targets, Aylesford School will ensure that they are consistent with the OH&S policy and take into account, financial, operational and business requirements as well as technological options. In order to determine whether or not the objectives and targets are being met they will be measured, where practical, to allow progress to be monitored. 4.5 Implementation and Operation Appendix D includes a flowchart showing the operation of the OH&S management system. Page 11 of 15

12 4.5.1 Resources, Roles, Responsibility, Accountability & Authority The Headteacher has overall responsibility for the OH&S management system and will assign personnel to the necessary duties outlined in this manual and make available all necessary resources to ensure that the management system is fully implemented. Roles and responsibilities are defined and communicated through this management manual and any other referenced documentation. The Headteacher will communicate with all designated personnel to ensure that they are fully aware of their roles and what is expected Competence, Training and Awareness The Headteacher ensures that only personnel with suitable qualification and experience are employed on work tasks which have the potential to cause harm. He will take action to ensure that training requirements are met and that the effectiveness of training to meet requirements is monitored. All personnel are appraised with respect to competence. The Headteacher will ensure that all persons understand the importance of their training and experience and how they can work effectively to ensure safe working. He will also ensure that personnel are aware of the health and safety consequences of their work activities and the benefits of following safe working practices. It is ensured that records of training, education, qualification and experience are maintained. Hardcopies of training certificates are held by Human Resources Communications, Participation and Consultation Communication The Headteacher will ensure through the Site Manager that all personnel including contractors are made aware of issues regarding health and safety. The Site Manager will also be the person responsible for receiving, recording and responding to any health and safety communications and liaise with the Headteacher as appropriate Participation and Consultation Professional representation regarding OH&S matters are the responsibility of the trade union organisations, they may or may not seek representation on these matters. The worker representative will be particularly involved in the following activities: incident investigation, review of OH&S policies, procedures and objectives as well as hazard identification, risk assessment and the appropriate precautions to be taken. Where necessary the Headteacher will discuss with relevant external parties and contractors any pertinent OH&S matters Documentation Documents that are necessary to meet the requirements of this OH&S management manual shall be maintained as evidence of compliance. Documentation specifically retained as evidence is: a) The OH&S policy included within Appendix B Page 12 of 15

13 b) The OH&S objectives recorded and maintained within the minutes of the Management Review Meeting c) The scope of the OH&S management system is defined within section 1.2 d) A description of the main elements of the OH&S management system is set out in Appendix D Control of Documents Documents required by this manual shall be updated and re-approved to ensure that they are current. Pertinent documents of the correct versions will be made available for use Operational Control The Headteacher through the designated competent person shall ensure that the controls and any necessary operating criteria are stipulated where the risk assessment process has identified precautionary measures to be implemented (see section 4.4.1). Where necessary to ensure compliance with safe working practices documented procedures will be prepared, implemented and maintained to define the working methods to be employed. Operational controls shall be specifically considered when considering the purchase of goods, equipment and services Emergency Preparedness and Response The school has identified the potential emergency situations and incidents pertaining to its business operations and undertaken appropriate risk assessments (see section 4.3.1). Where required they are regularly reviewed and tested. Where necessary documented procedures have been prepared, implemented and maintained to define the emergency response. 4.6 Checking Performance Measurement and Monitoring The Headteacher has appointed a School Site Manager to undertake routine inspections of the workplace and operational activities of the company. The School Site Manager will undertake regular inspections and report on performance and effectiveness of the controls using an Audit / Inspection Report (Appendix H). Any findings that warrant corrective action shall be recorded on a Non-conformance Report form (Appendix G) which is used to progress the corrective action to a conclusion. The School Site Manager will collect data related to the OH&S performance and report this to the Headteacher. Performance measures include accidents, incidents, near misses and other performance measures. These measures are monitored during the Management Review Meeting and recorded within the minutes of the meeting. Where calibrated equipment is used to measure performance it will be ensured that it has a current calibration certificate. Page 13 of 15

14 4.6.2 Evaluation of Compliance Conformance with legislation is reviewed in accordance with section and evidence of evaluation is maintained through the management review process Incident Investigation, Nonconformity, Corrective Action and Preventive Action Incident Investigation All personnel are required to record all incidents on the Aylesford School - Accident Incident Report Form (Appendix G) which shall be passed to the School Site Manager for processing. The School Site Manager will define a suitable corrective action and record on the form. The form will be used to monitor progress until the nonconformance report can be signed off as closed. The following (although not limited to) are to be considered incidents for the purposes of reporting:- Accident Near misses Any situation that may lead to harm which is not subject to a current risk assessment In order to achieve continual improvement, the causes of health and safety incidents that become known will be investigated and action taken to avoid recurrence completed in a timely manner Non-conformity, Corrective Action and Preventive Action All incidents, near misses, external party issues, results of inspections and results of audits are recorded on the Aylesford School - Accident Incident Report Form. The School Site Manager shall take responsibility for ensuring that any corrective action is added to the form and communicated to all relevant personnel. He will ensure that the corrective action takes account of the root cause of the nonconformance. The School Site Manager will progress the corrective action to a conclusion and ensure that the Non-conformance Report is effectively closed and review its effectiveness. Where necessary the School Site Manager will ensure that the issue is subjected to a revised risk assessment. Aylesford School understands that it is preferable and more effective to prevent health and safety problems occurring. Acting in a proactive way is preferable to acting reactively. The Headteacher in consultation with other parties will therefore take opportunities to reflect on situations and take preventive action wherever possible. All preventive action will be recorded on a Non-conformance Report for implementation of a corrective action Control of Records The School shall maintain records as evidence that the requirements of this OH&S management manual have been met. The records will be maintained so that they can be located and referred to easily. Page 14 of 15

15 These records include but are not limited to:- Governors Committee Meeting Minutes Audit / Inspection Report Non-conformance Reports (and related documentation) Risk Assessments Communication records Training records Internal Audit An internal audit programme is devised on an annual basis ensuring that all parts of the management systems (as defined within this OH&S management manual) are reviewed to ensure that they continue to meet the requirements of OHSAS 18001: The internal audits are undertaken by appropriately trained and / or capable auditors and recorded on an Audit / Inspection Form (Appendix H) together with any audit findings on a Non-conformance Report (Appendix G). Note: Internal Audits are supplemental to Inspections (section 4.6.1) and are directed towards ensuring that the systems defined in this manual are implemented correctly. 4.7 Governors Committee Meetings / Management review Governors are aware of the requirements of OHSAS 18001: 2007 and all pertinent aspects are reviewed and actions taken as required. Finance and Premises meetings of the Governing Body have a standing item on the agenda for a report in this respect. The meetings are undertaken six times a year in accordance with the agenda. The meeting is attended by the Headteacher and any other interested parties. The Governors Committee Meetings are used as the pivotal means of ensuring that the School s systems are fully implemented and effective.
