Severndale School will ensure that all Work Experience students are placed in a safe and healthy working environment so far as is reasonably practicable by taking the following measures:
- Ensure that students have been made aware of and have understood the relevant hazards of the job in which they are being trained and are aware of the controls required to reduce the risks to an acceptable level including the use of personal protective equipment (PPE).
- Ensuring compliance with Health and Safety legislation including that which is specific to young persons and the working time directive.
- Making the placement provider and work experience student aware that the student is legally an employee during the time of placement.
- Ensuring the student is suited to the placement on offer.
