Why Safe Principals?

"Safe" implies protection and feeling relieved and comfortable.

We know just how important it is to achieve safety and protection for staff, students and visitors from any hazards in the workplace so that the real job of schools - teaching and learning - can be implemented.

Principals are the site managers of their schools under Australian OHS Legislation and as such are "where the buck stops".

Highest _risk


Steve and Dan are very much  aware of the issues faced by Principals in the day to day management of their particular environment.

By providing school Principals with expert consultancy and advice, Steve and Dan are able to help them implement safety principles in their workplaces. This results in a school with a culture of safety and care for everyone as well as fulfilling the legal obligations of OHS legislation. Hence the business name "Safe Principals".

Steve and Dan offer a helping hand - figuratively throwing them a lifebuoy. Principals have a multitude of concerns to sort out daily and are in charge of a microcosm at their school site. We offer a helping hand - figuratively throwing them a lifebuoy! - so that Principals do not feel like they are "up to their neck in it" or overwhelmed by just one more major issue to deal with - OHS compliance.

Principals and staff want to get on with their main game - quality teaching. Ours input for one, two or three days enables them to do just that. By sharing our wealth of knowledge and experience on safety matters, we rescue Principals from what can often seem a quagmire of OHS mandatory requirements.
