The HSE's eBulletin is aimed at all those running, governing or working in the education sector. 

Key issues:

Component failures in buildings built between the mid-1950's and the 1980's which contain reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete (RAAC) precast floor and roof components. 

The Department for Education has issued guidance - the link can be found in the HSE eBulletin below.

Asbestos: revised guidance from the Department for Education. 

Safetyboss will review your arrangements for management of asbestos, as part of a health and safety audit.

Preventing Musculoskeletal disorders in the early years workforce:

Safetyboss can provide advice and assistance in keeping your staff healthy and avoiding RIDDOR-reportable injuries. 

Legionella risks during the coronavirus pandemic: water can stagnate if some parts of the building e.g. changing room showers or toilet blocks have been closed or had reduced occupancy during the pandemic.
