Heavy Equipment & Health and Safety Specialist Visits Branksome Hall Asia
By Dr. Mark Lee
At Branksome Hall Asia we take safety seriously. This past February 10 and 11, a heavy equipment (HME) specialist, Mr. Kevin Hughes, visited Branksome Hall Asia to provide health and safety training to our design, art, science, and drama staff. The consultant showed staff how to conduct risk assessments to be sure that different features of the learning environment in the theatre spaces, labs, and design technology areas are safe.
Mr. Hughes is a certified inspector and he spent his second day with us reviewing laboratory and heavy equipment throughout the school in order to provide recommendations for how to ensure and improve safety. A final report has been produced to help guide the Health and Safety Committee at our school to implement refinements in our procedures.
All the best to everyone during this challenging time at Branksome Hall Asia.
