Hammersmith & Fulham Council wishes to provide schools with high quality health and safety support, advice, guidance and training through the provision of well trained and informed professional staff. The purpose of this Service Level Specification is to provide clarification as to health & safety service provision to schools via the Corporate Safety Team and other colleagues within the Council.

The service specification consists of a combination of free-to-all, Dedicated School Grant funded and charged services. The provision of services to each school will be dependent on the school’s employment status and funding arrangements. Service charges are based upon cost recovery rather than profit, thereby ensuring that competitive rates are set for the services offered.

For core buy-back services there would be a set fee for a set period of time. Charges for training and other additional work will be based upon the type of service provided but indicative values have been provided in the Pricing Schedule.


These elements of the service specification are free to all Hammersmith & Fulham educational establishments, no matter the funding status:
