Business Risk Management is the identification, assessment, and prioritisation of risks followed by coordinated and economical application of resources to minimise, monitor, and control the probability and/or impact of unfortunate events or to maximize the realisation of opportunities.
Risks can come from various sources: e.g., uncertainty of income, internal controls, threats from project failures, legal liabilities, recruitment of staff, accidents, government interventions / policies, regulations, success, pupil attendance, parent feedback, pupil numbers, Ofsted, data, and so on.
Services for Schools understand the Risk management as a logical process or approach that seeks to eliminate or at least minimise the level of risk associated with your School. Essentially, the process identifies any type of situation that could result in damage to any resource including staff, skills and knowledge, then take steps to correct factors that are highly likely to result in a negative impact.
Health and Safety Risk Assessment Services
Services for Schools can help you meet your statutory and moral obligations by conducting risk assessments to ensure you are safe and secure at your surgery and that your risk assessments are suitable and sufficient. Such documents should all be working documents and not just “dust gatherers”. They must be relevant, up to date, monitored, regularly reviewed and recorded.
Services for Schools are here to provide you with the solutions. This can range from the provision of policies and procedures to production of individual assessments and the establishment of central databases.
