Workplace Inspections

It is the legal obligation of school leadership to ensure that all safety hazards are identified and suitably controlled, so as to minimise the risk of injury / illness to staff, students, volunteers, contractors and visitors. One method by which all school leaders can ensure all hazards are controlled is by conducting regular (recommend biannual) workplace inspections of all areas of the school.

There are numerous workplace inspection checklists available for use in the Resources section below, and school leaders can use these to perform a workplace inspection with their staff and / or health and safety representative. For advice on workplace inspections please contact the CECV OHS Team on 9267 0431.
