Any health and safety management audits carried out by the local authority are a point in time review based on evidence seen and staff spoken to. The audits do not include a technical/quality check of documentation seen or if actions given in specialist reports/documentation (such as legionella risk assessments for example) have been adequately or suitably completed/progressed by the school.
Schools are responsible and accountable when it comes to meeting health and safety legislation. Having a health and safety management audit carried out by the local authority does not automatically mean that the school is fully compliant with all health and safety legislation. As such, the local authority cannot accept any form of liability as a result of this service.
