International School of Siem Reap [ISSR] is committed to promote a safe and healthy working environment for staff, students and all other users of the school site. This will be achieved through regular meetings with health and safety staff and the school operation.
At our new Primary School, we have ensured that there are many covered areas for the children to use during snack and lunch time so that they do not have to be exposed to the sun. However, we are aware that the children like to run around in areas that we are unable to cover. Due to this, we do allow the children to bring hats to school so that they can be as safe as possible under the sun. Please be aware that hats brought to school should be labelled with your child’s name and class and it is the students’ responsibility to look after items they bring to school.
FIRST AID AT ISSR
ISSR is dedicated to the safety of all members of the community. Our duty to provide first aid at work is a priority for us. We carry out a risk assessment regularly in order to determine what first aid facilities and personnel are necessary to meet the needs of our school.
We also review this assessment periodically to ensure that current provision is adequate. In order to comply with the needs of our school, assessment has considered a number of factors, including the following:
- Size of school
- Type of school
- Building layout
- School facilities
- Past history of accidents
- Needs of travelling and /or lone workers
- Visitors to the school
- Medical resources available in Cambodia
ISSR Primary School Campus receives three supervised formal Fire Evacuation Drills on an annual basis that are carried out during each term and supervised by the ISSR Primary Principal. The purpose and the objectives of any fire evacuation drill include:
– To identify any weaknesses in the evacuation strategy;
– To test the procedure following any recent alteration or changes to working practices;
– To familiarise new students/staff with procedures;
– To test the arrangements for disabled people,
– To identify weaknesses in emergency communications procedures and systems;
– To identify positive and negative reactions of staff with designated responsibilities such as Fire Evacuation Marshals (FEMs);
