Preventing Trip Hazards in School


Are you preventing trip hazards in your school?

Where there’s blame, there’s a claim right? It’s a catch phrase we have heard time and time again, with some cases highlighted in the news recently. It’s reported that the education sector made pay outs amounting to £250,000 last year, with many related to trip hazards, slips, assaults and discrimination claims.

Chris Keates, general secretary of National Association of Schoolmaster Union of Women Teachers, said: “Not only does the union continue to pursue employers who are negligent in terms of the health and welfare of members, but we are also now seeing a significant increase in the number of members with protected characteristics being subjected to discriminatory treatment.”

Taking this into account, are schools doing everything in their power to prevent trips hazards from happening?

Messy cloakrooms cause trip hazards

For one schools across the UK rely heavily upon the traditional coat hook and bench for their cloakrooms, but can these deliver the correct storage for an increasing student population?

Here at stanley we provide specialist storage solutions which consist of lockers and shelving for all types of educational environments. We have helped to transform many cloakrooms to beautiful and eye-catching storage. We can even colour match school uniforms by using our clever pantone colour match tool.
