I'd get that in writing personally.
To be entirely honest with you Sysman..I really dont know, the NM and SMT tell me its covered, and thats good enough for me
I'd get that in writing personally.
I suppose I should...but then again, I *should* wear antistatic wriststraps and crud , I *should* never browse non work related stuff at work , I *should* never do a number of things.
I dont know, I just never bothered with getting stuff in writing. Guess that I've just been doing it my way for so long now (decade and a half) that I just get on and do what I do
Public liability licence.
Just get an email from them saying they authorise you to do it and they take full responsibility for any liabilities that occur. There are enough lawers out there willing to sue the school... by the way you have had the relavant ladder health and safety training (As I said before the hassle I would have to go through to do it myself) even the emails have to be sent in triplicate to get things done around here
I had ladder HS training many years ago, though admittedly I dont know if I need re-training. Bah...lawyers will sue for anything...every week that passes this country gets more like the US, I am surprised most mornings that I can speak to students without written permission without being charged with trying to groom them.
Why? You would be covered by the schools public liability insurance.Originally Posted by Face-Man
Ladder HS course, wtf??!?!?!?! Do you people get anything done without stopping to check if
1. You will be sued
2.Unless they send you on a course
3. if you can sue them.
Jesus christ no wonder schools are screwed if everyone had that attitude, jesus guys just get on and do it.
Why on earth would I go on a ladder saftey course? I am not a retard I know how to climb up and down a ladder without falling off, it's called Self preservation!
What next "can't change the toner as I don't have the relevant Toner Changing Health and Saftey Certificate"¬!
See...now look what I have started..I knew I should have lied and just said yes I do have it in writing
Besides we don't use ladders here when we put up projectors, we use the tables, far more sturdy than some damn ladder!
Some of us have been suspended for less.
I'd be more concerned about a personal law suite.There are enough lawers out there willing to sue the school...
Suppose it depends how much influence you have at the school then.
Wow...thats pretty harsh. Can honestly say I have never been suspended in my life. (that includes when I was at school myself hehe, yea yeah...teachers pet I know )
I think I've actually walked into a no-win position, on the one hand I see Indiegirl regularly complaining (and quite rightly so) that her NM doesnt do anything, then here I am , doing as much as I can (some apparently say more than I should do), and still cant win.
I have to be honest, if I didnt do cabling, and projectors, IWB etc..I really wouldnt have a whole lot to do other than changing the occassional password. The network is stable, and isnt really in need of expansion, everything is running smoothly (with the occassional exception of a sims update ). Without out the "additional" things that I do, I think my day would entirely consist of just swapping out a mouse or changing a password. For which I would be hard pushed to morally justify my wages. I'd end up spending all day on an internet forum !!
He does spend all his day on Internet Forums. Thats why I have to work him so hard uninsured as well. Although he does have a "playing on Internet Forum" Certification so I suppose I have to let him.
