Are you a school or college that takes advantage of the long summer break for your much-needed repair and maintenance work?

Teachers, staff and students alike all deserve a well-earned break, however just as schools are out for summer, this is when the majority of the repairs and maintenance work start!

You might describe some of these tasks as urgent need-based projects to comply with health and safety issues and to keep children and staff safe. Like fire and security system updates, repairs or maintenance.

Have you recently extended your school?

If you have recently changed the use of some rooms, buildings or extended the number of classrooms and training buildings to house the ever-growing pupil numbers. You’ll need to carry out a fire risk assessment, and what better time than during the summer break.

Fire risk assessments are just one of the tasks you need to keep on top of. Here are a few more reminders:

  • Fire Alarm updates
  • Fire Alarm maintenance
  • Emergency lighting checks (in the dark)
  • Fire doors and escape routes
  • CCTV additions, repairs and maintenance
  • Access control updates, new additions, maintenance
  • Intruder alarm maintenance
  • Fire extinguisher checks
  • Staff fire training

All of which could be looked at over the six-week break.
