This section deals with Health and Safety issues that are related to the management and organisation of specialist facilities and equipment in an art and design department and day-to-day classroom requirements.
CLEAPSS have produced a series of Risk Assessment guidance documents, specifically for art & design, and also for those activities in D&T that share materials, equipment and processes. Schools, Trusts and Local Partnerships of Schools will need to have a membership for CLEAPSS to enable their teachers to access these very useful guidance documents.
The entire collection of the 68 Model Risk Assessments (MRATs) for Art & Design can be viewed here.
