Health and Safety - Statutory Guidance


Welcome to health and safety in the Royal Borough of Kingston-upon-Thames (RBK) and London Borough of Sutton (LBS).

Our Occupational Health, Safety and Wellbeing team works alongside the local authorities’ senior management teams,  Managers and Headteachers.  The local authority has a legal duty to ensure that the health and safety arrangements in schools are adequate.  In the case of community maintained schools this includes ensuring that there is:

  • access to a competent source of health and safety advice
  • an up to date and relevant health and safety policy
  • suitable arrangements for managing health and safety risks such as fire, asbestos, electrical safety, gas safety and stored water
  • provision for training staff in health and safety.
