Revised guidance for schools on managing workplace safety, health and welfare were published and issued to all post-primary schools in the country in December 2018.
The updated guidelines on Managing Safety, Health and Welfare in Post-Primary Schools are the outcome of a joint project undertaken by the Health and Safety Authority, the Department of Education and Skills and the State Claims Agency.
The guidelines aim to assist schools in fulfilling their legal obligation to manage the safety, health and welfare of staff in the school.
