A new era of Risk and Compliance Management for Schools

Managing the Risk and Compliance of your School’s Providers of On-site Goods or Services (POGS)/Contractors, Volunteers & Facility Hirers.

SAM4Schools is a secure, online Risk and Compliance Management System that benefits schools and their providers of on-site goods or services (POGS) / contractors.
Our system provides the framework to establish and maintain an up-to-date Compliance Register for every provider of on-site goods or services (POGS) and contractors to a school.  This enables a school to meet its workplace obligations and comply with current legislation, while providing their legal duty of care.


SAM4Schools streamlines compliance and reporting procedures, and greatly assists those responsible for the workplace health and safety of their school, such as:  principals, assistant principals, business managers and leadership team members responsible for budgets, facilities and purchasing.

A school culture that values compliance and governance is the key to delivering trust and integrity. Building and maintaining this culture casts a protective net over your staff and students while satisfying legal requirements.

The school education framework in Australia is undergoing critical change, resulting in increasing pressure for schools to educate students while negotiating constant shifts in legislative, fiscal and economic requirements. Such challenges create greater expectations on your compliance and risk processes to protect your school from harm.

Risks are events, situations or circumstances that may lead to negative consequences for your school. Appropriate risk management strategies can minimise costly and stressful problems, and may also reduce insurance claims and premiums

We follow a Risk Management structured approach to managing uncertainty and includes actions taken to: Identify; Assess; Monitor; and Reduce the impact of risks

St Paul Apostle South Primary School

SAM4Schools is an exceptional and effective program that simplifies the OHS requirements at our school, It is straightforward to use and eliminates the burden of manually managing Contractors, Volunteers, and Facilities Hirers that are engaged at our school.
Not only does SAM4Schools reduce risk and improve safety but also enables the ability to access thousands of pre-approved businesses with just a click of a button.
I definitely recommend SAM4Schools as it is now an essential part of our Risk Management System.

Wonga Park Primary School

Wonga Park Primary School has been using the services of Sam4Schools since 2010. We have found the program to be a very reliable, efficient and effective way of managing our preferred contractors and suppliers.
The program allows the school to be able to quickly and easily see that our preferred contractors and suppliers comply with Occupational Health and Safety requirements and School compliance. All required documentation is managed on-line in an easy to use format.
The program also enables the user to search for other compliant contractors/ suppliers, that are currently being used by other schools.
All communications with Sam4Schools are acted upon and followed up in an efficient, timely manner by Greg Dawson and his team.
We look forward to continuing to work with Sam4Schools and we would highly recommend the program to all schools, as it is a convenient, time-saving resource.
