Public and School Safety: Risk Assessment, Perceptions and Management Strategies


Jarrett Conaway (Editor)

Series: Safety and Risk in Society
BISAC: EDU034010

Schools are, in general, safe spaces for every student, teacher and other professional. However, some problems related to the maintenance of school building and installations, as well as other threats related to cases of vandalism and bullying, can occur during academic activity. Safety must be part of the regular process of management, establishing tasks and roles and promoting the development of prevention plans, with the objective of guaranteeing protection for all people who regularly attend schools.

Success in safety management lies in knowing what takes place in a school, being conscious of the risks that can affect students, teachers and other professionals who study and work there. This book discusses the EDURISC self-assessment questionnaire used for the assessment of integral safety in schools; provides insight on school indoor quality; and examines integration of chemical safety education into the preschool curriculum.
