Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Does my school require health and safety software?

For every educational institution, health and safety compliance is paramount in order to ensure the physical safety of teaching staff, students, supporting staff and visitors.

Some schools operate a paper-based system, some use basic computer programs, whilst most utilise health & safety software system like Smartlog® to save time, resources, and increase the quality & transparency of their compliance processes.

Safesmart provides affordable software and services to take care of all fire and health & safety requirements, so that more focus can be put on addressing the other challenges involved in the running of a school, college or university.

What are the benefits of a school health and safety software system?

For education business managers everywhere, the management of health and safety involves ensuring the safety of mainly staff and students – two groups that have very different compliance requirements.

With many schools still relying on paper or basic digital processes to share health and safety policies with staff, carry out risk assessments, and report incidents etc., manual processes take up too much time, leave plenty of room for costly errors, and more often than not, lack the level of security required for information that is sensitive by nature.

A health and safety software system like Smartlog provides a solution to all the aforementioned challenges, in order to make the management of school health and safety an easy, efficient, and effortlessly integrated process.

Is my school paying too much for health and safety compliance?

Keeping on top of school health and safety seems to be an expensive job, especially considering that there can be no shortcuts in providing a safe environment for staff and students. However, it doesn’t need to be expensive. In fact, we strongly believe that health and safety compliance should be both high quality AND affordable.

Regular fire risk assessments are mandatory and vary little in prices, however other health and safety processes can be made considerably cheaper through the use of a health and safety software system; enabling the bundling of different compliance processes into a single efficient – and affordable system.

This will help in all facets of school health and safety, to give you peace of mind whilst also ensuring that your budget is only spent where it is absolutely necessary.

Where can I get the best health and safety help & advice for my school?

Unlike the private sector, health and safety in the education sector is overseen by the Department of Education alongside the HSE. This means that schools must adapt to frequently changing guidance as well as overall workplace health and safety law.
