Health and Safety
Is Your Classroom Safe and Healthy Checklist
All teachers are entitled to teach in classrooms that are healthy and safe. The NASUWT has drawn up a checklist of ten top priorities for a safe and healthy classroom. It's easy to complete online and print for your records.
Valued Worker Scheme
The Valued Worker Scheme is a cross-union initiative designed to recognise employers who treat their employees well and those who wish to treat their employees better. The Valued Worker Scheme page has information on the scheme, how it operates, and how employers can sign up to the scheme.
During winter months, schools can often be affected by adverse weather such as heavy snowfalls. The adverse weather guidance is designed to inform members what to do where adverse weather events occur, when schools should be closed, and what to do in the event of a mid-session closure.
HSE Talking Toolkit for Schools
The HSE has published The Talking Toolkit for Schools, with substantial input from the NASUWT, in a bid to get schools to talk openly and honestly about stress to help prevent problems or stop them getting worse.
The NASUWT's Health and Safety leaflets deal with a variety of aspects of health and safety.
