This is a half day workshop which will provide basic information, guidance and best practice to assist you in understanding and complying with your statutory premises health and safety requirements.
Whether you own the premises that you run your early years and childcare provision from or rent/lease it from a landlord, the person or organisation registered with Ofsted has a LEGAL DUTY to ensure that their premises are safe, particularly with regards to high risk areas such as Fire, Electricity, Gas, Water Asbestos as well as others. The Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation stage also states that providers must ensure that their premises are fit for purpose and suitable and that they must comply with requirements of health and safety legislation (including fire safety and hygiene requirements), this is also a requirement under your Free Early Education Entitlement (FEEE) contract with the Council. In the worst instances, failure to meet these requirements can result in death or injury to premises users, enforcement action from the HSE and/or Ofsted and termination of your contract to deliver FEEE places with the Council.
At the end of the workshop, we aim that settings will have a greater understanding of Premises statutory compliance / Health & Safety in order to meet their statutory requirements, reduce risk and keep users safe.
