Education Services – Fire Risk Management and Health & Safety for Schools

Schools can be dangerous places. It is vital to ensure that schools and academies have effective fire, health and safety support available to them to achieve health and safety compliance. Fire risk management and health & safety can be daunting at first, but they really don’t need to be. JCH Safety are here to help you remove the concerns that can arise in these areas to keep your students and staff safe at school.

Why JCH Safety?

As budgets get tighter and resources more limited, it is important for governors, headteachers and school business managers to look for new approaches. Many schools have traditionally used the local authority for fire and safety services but they can be expensive and they don’t always provide the expertise and personal touch that you need. With JCH Safety Ltd you will always be looked after by your highly qualified designated consultant who you will get to know by meeting with them regularly. We only use Chartered Occupational Safety and Health Practitioners and experienced Fire Risk Assessors. This ensures that you always have access to the best, most experienced advice. As members of leading professional bodies including IOSH, IIRSM, IFE you can be assured of the best service, skills and experience. It’s not all about money but we will beat any other like for like quotation.

“JCH Safety Ltd has many years of experience in providing fire risk assessments and health and safety consultancy support to schools. We have implemented effective health and safety schemes to allow school business managers to be confident that they are in safe hands. As our clients, we put you first and ensure that we are there to proactively assist you in your legal duties. We can provide documentation, policies, inspections, audits, advice and training to maximise your legal compliance.”

Don’t just take our word for it – this is what some of our clients say:


“JCH Safety have provided us with consultancy and advice relating to Health and Safety factors within our Academies. This includes our annual Fire Risk Assessment and building inspections as well as help and advice on legislation surrounding the occasional accident and incident.  They provide us with an invaluable service and are always professional and, most importantly, reasonable.”
Graham Jacklin – FM Manager for the Trust, WMG Academy for Young Engineers


“I have found the service we receive from JCH Safety to be excellent. Jonathan is extremely knowledgeable and is always available to discuss any concerns or issues we may come up against. I can thoroughly recommend the service!”
C. Atkins – School Business Manager, The Westwood Academy, Mitchell Avenue, Coventry

Our fees are highly competitive as they are not used to subsidise other schools. We are your advisors and you get our full attention and value for money. We do not look for long expensive commitments from our clients. Afterall, our clients choose to stay with us because we work hard for them and show them our commitment.

Our Services

JCH Safety Ltd are Chartered Occupational Safety and Health Practitioners and Fire Risk Assessors. We work with organisations to manage and minimise risk through a risk assessment approach. We provide service agreements as well as specific targeted solutions to problems you may be facing.

We also provide highly competitive first aid training, property assessments and documentation.

In light of the recent Grenfell Tower disaster, JCH Safety has been working with organisations to improve fire safety. We have been developing new strategies for evacuation, training fire marshals, and making sure that their fire safety management systems are compliant. If you require any assistance in these areas, or if your evacuation is taking too long, then please get in touch. We can help you to rectify this.

JCH Safety appreciate that many schools and academies traditionally have bought in health and safety services from the local authority. JCH Safety are confident that we can bring about considerable savings and improve your level of service. We would happily provide you with a free initial consultation to discuss your existing arrangements and to see where we could add value and reduce costs.
