Welcome to Compliance Matters - March 2018 Issue 10
Hello and welcome to the tenth edition of Compliance Matters - the UK's original eZine for education sector staff whose responsibilities include any aspect of compliance.
Amongst the variety of topics in this issue, Handsam Ltd examines the new invaluable DfE resource on Sexual Harassment and the terrifying statistics behind calls for young people to learn about Knife Crime in an education setting. This edition explores the emergence of the worrying Tide Pod trend and the continuing debate around the adequacy of Fire Safety in schools. Plus, find out more about the much misunderstood right to use Reasonable Force, the importance of Electrical Safety and how a school's Travel Management failure left a four year old boy to walk home alone.
For the sixth instalment of the Compliance Matters industry professional exclusives,
we have teamed up with Richard Jackson of the charity Gate Safe, to gain an insight into the valuable work they do around promoting safe gate installation and maintenance and what you can do to make your automated gates safer.
