So, in order to comply with new Health and Safety regulations we have been instructed to remove the jug from our office. Fair enough, this represents a huge risk, it could fall by some act of God and burn one of the two people in the office. I am surprised I am not paid danger money.
And it is great to hear that schools are paying thousands of dollars each year to have plugs and wall sockets checked – as part of managing electrical safety risks, I have not heard of a problem in the five years that I have been teaching, but you cannot be too careful! You never know some poor student could get electrocuted somehow by turning on a computer screen.
