HSE have launched their new and improved Education web pages which can be found on HSE’s main website: http://www.hse.gov.uk/services/education/index.htm
This microsite has been updated as part of HSE’s on-going project to rationalise and update their guidance material. As well as revising existing pages they have also added several new sections for example Health and Safety checklist for classrooms. You’ll also find the High Level Statement on tackling the myths about health and safety law being a barrier to school trips and outdoor learning activities, including case studies about school trips.
Another new feature which has been added to the web pages is an e-Bulletin where interested parties can sign up to receive automatic notification via e-mail of any updates to the Education web pages, thereby helping users to keep up -to-date on key additions to online guidance. If you are interested in subscribing to the e-Bulletin, please follow the instructions in the following link: http://www.hse.gov.uk/services/education/subscribe.htm.
