Notice to Guardians

Dear Guardians,

We are happy to inform you that South Point Education Society received the OHSAS 18001:2007 Occupational Health and Safety Management Certification from the British Standards Institute (BSI) in respect of South Point School, Mandeville Gardens, and South Point High School, Ballygunge Place on Wednesday, 2 August 2017. 
The Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series (OHSAS 18001:2007) is an international standard and it stipulates processes to identify, control and decrease the risks, associated with health and safety in the organization concerned, for all its stakeholders. The Certification ensures that a rigorous health and safety policy is in place in the organization and that it protects all stakeholders who are occupants of the premises, including teachers and staff, parents, visitors and, most importantly, students, against possible occupational risks and reduces the likelihood of accidents.
In early 2012, we at South Point felt the need to adopt a structured approach in addressing the issues of safety and occupational health in the school. Thus began the journey of implementing an Occupational Health & Safety Management System in both the Schools operated by SPES.

An OHSAS Implementation Team was formed comprising selected members of the administrative, teaching and other support staff, to implement the OHSAS requirements in the school context. An elaborate training and awareness campaign was organized, starting from teachers and percolating down to the students of the junior-most class of the school. Emergency Response Teams have been formed at both buildings, involving a cross-section of the school staff. They have been trained on fire fighting, earthquake management, steps to be undertaken during terror threats, first aid measures etc. An OHS Internal Audit Team has been formed to audit the schools’ OHS management system and identify areas of improvement. Such audits will be conducted every six months. This will ensure that the OHS Management System remains dynamic and keeps countering newer hazards, risks and threats.

We also look forward to your unstinting support in our implementation of the OHSAS policy to enable us to provide a safe environment for your ward in our institution.
