HSE Guidance on School Trips to a High Risk Site
Whilst a sawmill is not directly part of the organics industry there are many parallels between the Sawmill and sites within the organics recycling industry.
This document details how a school visit to the site was managed for a group of children in the 9 – 13 age range. The report identifies potential hazards on the site and explains how the risks were managed. The children were encouraged to think about health &safety, group sizes were planned and a safe system of moving around the site was devised.
The report concludes that the children had a curriculum linked positive learning experience outside the classroom and that it is possible to organise successful visits to high risk sites.
