In January 2016, the Enterprise Risk Management Section in conjunction with the Association of Community and Comprehensive Schools hosted a series of risk management seminars for Community and Comprehensive Schools.
The seminars took place in Dublin, Limerick and Sligo and were well attended by School Principals, Deputy Principals and Safety Representatives.
The seminars were designed to re-engage with Community and Comprehensive Schools on risk and claims management matters, demonstrating effective risk management strategies, shared learning in accordance with statutory requirements and best practice standards.
A new Work Placement Guidance Document was also launched which will better assist schools with the management of student work placements.
The seminars provided a great opportunity to meet with school staff and the interaction and participation from the attendees contributed to the success of the seminars.
