The risk assessment module in Stedfast has been designed to allow education and training to review all areas of their organisation and delivery.

Education and training providers need to ensure that they have fully risked assessed their organisation and delivery. Risk assessment is not just about health and safety. Organisations need to consider how they mitigate risk to learners, staff, programmes, finance, IT and any other area of the business.

  • Add collaborative risk assessment editors
  • Associate policies to risk assessments
  • Add unlimited risk assessment sections
  • Review and sign off risk assessments annually

CREATING RISK ASSESSMENTS

​Education and training providers need to ensure they meet their health and safety duties as set out in the Health and Safety at Work Act and the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999.

​As well has having appropriate policies and procedures in place, education and training providers also need to ensure that they have undertaken suitable and sufficient risk assessment.

RISK ASSESSMENT DETAIL

There needs to be consideration given to how staff and learners are risked assessed.

​What are the facilities like that staff and learners use. Have apprenticeship placements been risk assessed?

​Have risks to lone workers been risk assessment or where staff need to drive as part of their job? These are all management responsibilities.

Users can add detail to risk assessment plans including supporting documents and narrative sections.

Who can use the risk assessment module?

The risk assessment module has been designed for all education and training providers.

Do we just need health and safety risk assessments?

Whilst it is important to have a full record of all health and safety risks, education and training providers also need to think about other areas of their organisations that need to be risk assessed:

  • Finance / funding
  • IT & Cyber
  • Lone work and staff requirements
  • Apprenticeship employers

All education and training providers should have a Prevent Duty Guidance risk assessment

Who should do these?

All staff should be involved in risk assessments and we have designed the risk assessment module to be collaborative. Teams of staff are able to work on specific risk assessments.
