Teacher’s union, the NASUWT, has raised concerns over the Coalition Government’s attacks on health and safety protections, claiming that these attacks threaten to put the lives of children and adults in schools and colleges at risk.
At its recent Annual Conference, representatives of the NASUWT argued a motion condemning moves by the Coalition to remove vital health and safety protections in the workplace.
Chris Keates, General Secretary of the NASUWT, said:
“By trivialising and trashing health and safety provisions, the Coalition is gambling with people’s lives.
“This is reckless and unacceptable and the NASUWT will continue to expose the risks and campaign against these changes.”
