The Health and Safety Climate of the College places health and safety at the highest level of school governance, which confirms strategy and structure and provides for the effective monitoring of staff health and safety performance. Health and Safety Compliance confirms the College’s commitment to meeting its legal health and safety responsibilities; in addition, internal processes are supportive of an embedded and generative culture which moves health and safety beyond compliance towards actively protective planning and management which prioritise the care of students. Health and Safety Participation requires staff to possess and to develop skills and behaviours so as to be competent and “risk-intelligent” practitioners.
Ampleforth is committed to being a best practice organisation in health and safety: we have our own professionally qualified Director of Health and Safety.
In the College’s last ISI Inspection, Health & Safety was deemed to be excellent.
