Keeping your school, employees and pupils safe is your number one priority. However, with Health & Safety legislation constantly changing and budgets being continually squeezed, we understand it can be hard to keep on top of all the reports, paperwork, and day-to-day duties.

This is where our sister company, Citation, come in. They are the experts in keeping schools safe, and their education-specific safety services take the complication out of compliance. They will keep your school on the right side of the law, away from costly enforcement action, and safe from harm’s way, so you can free up time and focus on all the other elements of running a school.

Citation believes you know your school best, which is why they take a flexible approach and provide solutions to suit your budget.

How Citation can help
