Health And Safety/ Riddor

Just wondered if anyone could give me some information about how far they go into health and safety and Riddor. We have been updating our policy documents using the PLA book and are becoming confused about how deep into the subject of health and safety/ Riddor we should be going. The local council said that recording accidents/incidents was fine as long as information was kept locked away from all and sundry. Obviously we know to inform ofsted and Riddor of any serious issues. In our situation we rent our space from the local school and wonder who would be liable if a parent tumbled outside our door. Is it the playgroup, the school or the diocese. the building is owned by LEA but the land is owned by the diocese. I got confused just listening to them as they went round in circles checking different web sites.

 

What does everyone else have in their health and safety policy.

I'm based in Essex and like yourself rent the space from our local school. In my area the local council insisted that I complete my Health & Safety in the work place (which I have done) and the LEA have insisted that I put relevant insurance in place including 10 million public liability!! As far as I am aware I am liable for any trips/falls/accidents and also responsible for reporting to riddor etc.

Hope this helps
