Staff Laptop Use - 'Elf and Safety
A local school has asked me for advice on SLT and admin staff using their laptops for long (1+ hours in a sitting) periods of time and health and safety.
They've been told that this is not safe and that admin/SLT should have a desktop PC for use in their office, and use their laptops purely for use at home.
I've never come across this before. Even the idea of a docking station, or pseudo docking station has been pooh-poohed.
Now I assume that this is a ploy of "I've left me laptop at home" or "It's so heavy to move from my car to my office!" and they want a desktop as well to make life easier.
Anyone else had experience with this?
If it is a proper legislated H&S issue, then it's fine, I'd just like to find where in the books it is.
