In 2016 the company's founder, Georgina Cook, was asked to speak at a government focus group on her experience of setting up the OHMS for a brand new government secondary school, Albert Park College. Here she met both primary and secondary schools from the region and she was subsequently approached to assist other schools with administering the OHMS.
Since then TeachSafe has been created to offer freelance support to schools helping to manage what is increasingly a complicated and vital part of running a school facility.
TeachSafe differs from other services that provide purely software support. An outsourced administration service, we understand how important it is to work in partnership with schools to successfully implement policies and procedures to ensure a compliant workplace that is fundamentally a more enjoyable and safe place to work.
TeachSafe combines a knowledge of corporate compliance, education and communication to deliver experienced OHS administration services.
We are the only business to specialise in setting up the OHSMS system from scratch for both primary and secondary schools in Victoria. This experience means we can effectively implement documentation in a time-efficient manner that improves the safety of both staff and students.
TeachSafe has previously implemented all OHSMS documentation in the foundation year for Albert Park College and worked with the management team to achieve a high score in the Department of Education's audit.
Other successful implementations include Richmond West Primary School, Seaholme Primary School and Newport Gardens Primary School.
We are committed to working in partnership with schools in Victoria to both improve the ease of implementation and to provide a complete OHS solution.
