Education policy and developments have led to a range of changes, both in funding and liability. With the shift to academies for some schools, the school rather than the local authority becomes the employer.

We provide consultancy, training and compliance services to schools, colleges and universities.

We believe that risk exposure is part of how as children and young people we learn about ourselves, other people and the world we live in. Our advice and support to schools is balanced and pragmatic. It’s all about doing things safely and not using health and safety as an excuse to stop activities.

Learning & Development/Training

We have delivered a range of courses to senior managers, general managers and facilities staff. Training, specifically designed for schools, including; managing asbestos, managing contractors, risk assessment for special events & school trips, fire safety, property risk management and first aid.


We can complete a range of compliance audits, tailored to the type of school, to ensure that you are able to meet your legal obligations and protect pupils, colleagues, contractors and visitors.


We help to develop your policies, procedures, handbooks and school specific health and safety management systems. We can utilise the latest technology to help you manage policies, procedures and facilities management online.

Claims Defence

We are able to review your existing policies, procedures, training, risk assessments and communication, to identify and close gaps which may increase the risk of an incident and/or leave you vulnerable to civil claims or prosecution.

As a small but growing organisation, the advice and support from Vita Safety has been invaluable to us. Working with one consultant means that they understand our business and although we are a low risk organisation, the service is flexible and tailored to meet our individual needs.
