‘Im a teacher’ and i’ve noticed the tags in my classroom are out of date. Whats NEXT?

As a teacher or staff member of an educational institution it is a legal obligation to ensure the safety of those you are responsible for.
It seems quite easy to turn a blind eye and not regard this as ‘my issue’ but heres the facts. IT IS.

As a teacher, especially of younger children it is your responsibility to maintain a hazard free environment for your students to learn in.

Taskforce regularly works within the school environment and its safe to say, all schools have a high dependence on electrical appliances, lets list a few;

  • computers
  • printers
  • projectors
  • chargers
  • pencil sharpeners
  • fridges
  • dishwashers
  • vacuums
  • speakers
  • stereos

The list goes on. 

What makes all this a major concern is the interaction these appliances might have with young children. As children learn and grow, so too does there curiosity to touch.
This overtime, could affect the condition and risk associated with certain appliances.

It is also important to note, faulty appliances can cause RCD’s to trip repeatedly, this can obviously cause major disruptions to teaching schedules as it can leave rooms or even blocks without power.
By adopting a proper test and tag service through Taskforce Safety, we will eliminate the concern of this happening and allow you to focus on what really matters.

By contacting our team, we will happily schedule your school in for a thorough inspection.
We understand the pressures of teaching and controlling a classroom, so why worry about facility related issues? LEAVE IT TO US.

We have years of experience and know exactly what we’re looking for.
The next time a colleague at your school disregards out of date tags as a non-essential issue, remind them of the responsibility they have accepted and lets keep each other safe.
