Employers, managers and supervisors should all ensure that workplace practices reflect the risk assessment and safety statement. Behavior, the way in which everyone works, must reflect the safe working practices laid down in these documents. Supervisory checks and audits should be carried out to determine how well the aims set down are being achieved. Corrective action should be taken when required.

All schools have policies in place which help implement health and safety legislation. These policies cover things such as the role of the health and safety officer, fire practices, risk assessments, hazardous substances, lifting and carrying amongst many other things. It is the role of the teaching assistant to help the teacher in the event of anything happen-ing i.e. an accident and the prevention of the accident being repeated (for example, faulty equipment). It is also part of the assistant’s responsibility to make sure that any allergies are known about so if anyone does have an allergic reaction it can be sorted quickly or in a likely event can even be prevented altogether.
In learning setting teachers can discuss news reports, situations, facts which can inform pupil about safety and provide opportunities to debate about possible outcomes of similar situations and different strategies that individual supports. Discussions/debates are perfect to find out various possible ways to protect themselves.

A 2011 study of U.S. high schools with at least one athletic trainer on staff found that concussions accounted for nearly 15% of all sports related injuries reported to athletic trainers. More than 248,000 children visited hospital emergency departments in 2009 for concussions and other traumatic brain injuries related to sports and recreation. Injuries associated with participation in sports and recreational activities account for 21% of all traumatic brain injuries among children in the United States. These statistics, all gathered by and coming from SWATA (Southwest Athletic Trainers’ Association), a branch of the NATA (National Athletic Trainers’ Association) are all reputable facts that were analyzed by healthcare professionals in the field of sports and that deal with athletes everyday. No argument for why a child should become one of these statistics is needed, given the gross number of cases and the severity of them
A hazard is anything that could cause harm, or has the potential to cause harm. For example all the electronic equipment and tools used by beauty therapists has the potential to cause harm if used incorrectly, great care should always be taken when operating equipment and tools. This will minimise the chance of a hazard occurring around your client, yourself and colleagues.
Safety – relative freedom from danger, risk, or threat of harm, injury, or loss to personnel and/or property, whether caused deliberately or by accident. (Business Dictionary, 2014)

Many children enjoy sports more than life itself. To love a sports with that amount of significance is not a horrible thing, but to love oneself should be the first priority in life. Especially adolescents who play the sport with lots of passion and emotion by imitating their favorite athletes to fight an injury so they would be able to continue their action. The youth as a whole need to realize that injuries are capable of affecting people’s lives around them. For example, hiding any joint problems gives an increase chance of arthritis at a younger age. Sport injuries at a young age can lead to a serious case of no or rare physical activity for the rest of their life (Schnedier 1). Concussions are one of the most serious injuries that athletes should be aware of and how to continue. Athletes like Chris Coyne fight concussions to play, but fighting a severe headache, dizziness and nausea can hurt a team more if something very serious would have happened to effect a teammate’s life.
There is a need that each school, its administrators and teachers should know the law of torts. In order to create a "culture of safety" principals should manage the risk of negligence to the faculty and students. As Burgett and Schwartz state, “being a teacher, administrator, board member, school employee, parent, or even a student is tricky business these days” (p.9). Therefore, each decision or actions’ steps should be made based upon ethical and legal principles. The particular high school puts an emphasis on health and safety issues. The school, the buildings, and the classroom are certainly the most critical areas of an educational institution where safety and health take place but also behavior and attitude reflect the importance of the serious business of learning. Therefore, the following three legal issues: unsupervised students, hallways, and field trips demand some improvements, accommodations or extra care to maintain the safety and healthy environment for students and employees.
What’s interesting about “safety” is that everything connects to it, but nothing does directly. When we did our first unit, Survival, we read “The Most Dangerous Game” and “To Build a Fire” and kids took notes and it all was pretty clear. Our “high flyers” were able to make connections beyond physical survival–how elements of survival apply to emotional experiences, too. But safety is not so
