Compliance Matters 24 - November 2020
Welcome to the 24th edition of Compliance Matters - the UK's original eZine for health and safety compliance in the education sector.
With COVID-19 still dominating what is happening in education, as across the country, this winter, Compliance Matters has a number of articles to inform and guide you in these uncertain times. In this issue we highlight the key updates to government advice for the new national lockdown period, cleaning your facility with foggers, guidance for first responders, and how to ensure special needs students are not "shut out" during Coronavirus restrictions.
One of our regular contributors, Marilyn Hawes gives us some insight into online misuse during lockdown. School operations expert Martin Cain highlights managing the implications of the new statutory landscape.
Also in this issue, we look at tree safety, period poverty and the government guidance on gender identity. In addition to this, Handsam also have a number of new risk assessment templates which you may find useful.
