Safety, Health & Environment (SHE) Staffing Changes and Health & Safety Audits
The SHE team would like to make you aware of recent staff changes and inform you that we will be resuming our audit programme after the Easter Holidays.
Paul Cobb, who many of you will be familiar with, left GCC in January 2021. Stuart Heggs has taken over as SHE Manager designate. We welcome Steve Knudsen to the team as a new SHE Adviser and are currently advertising for an additional SHE Adviser.
Our normal audit and Fire Risk Assessment programmes were severely disrupted by COVID restrictions and the additional work of the team during the pandemic. We will be resuming audits in Term 5, but priority will be given to schools that have not had an audit the longest. Those that have a regular 3 yearly visit can expect to wait up to a year longer than originally due.
There is no need to contact SHE as we have a schedule and will be contacting schools on a priority basis to arrange the audits.
We appreciate your cooperation and understanding.
