Educational institutes are the common platforms to enhance the knowledge of students and faculty as well. Many of us are depending on educational institutes to learn from basic to advanced studies and to teach as well. Hence children, faculty and staff are attending daily over a fixed time interval of a day in educational institutes/schools for easy interaction. Some schools or institutes are handling many classes at a time with huge number of students and faculty by assembling at a common area or school premises. Keeping this point in view, safety management of all the people is a difficult task in any emergency. Hence school management has to take precautionary actions to handle emergency conditions. Awareness related to safety needs to be incorporated in the management board of public schools or in institutes in the developing country like India. Many public schools are running in the busy cities with huge number of children. The health and safety precautions are essential and important in view of children education and teachers work place. In the present study a hazard analysis survey sheet has been developed to minimize the risks involved in daily life of students, faculty and staff. The development of new Indian standard code on safety measurements in public schools has been recommended.
