    Computers are electrical items. Health and Safety rules state that that students must never use electrical equipment unsupervised.

    Infrom SLT they are breaking the rules by allowing this to happen...

    Powdarrmonkey - single word, usupported answers are generally considered rude and in poor taste.

    Would you like to clarify why it is wrong. Is it because you don't consider PCs electrical? Or that it is safe for students to use them unsupervised? I would hate to be in your shoes if one of your little 'angels' decided to pour a bottle of water into the PC, and electrocuted themselves...

    Yeah we tried the logon hours thing here but it didn't stop anything. If the room is left unlocked you can guarantee somebody will walk off with a mouse or rearrange the keyboard letters etc. We have just implemented CCTV in the worst affected rooms so will see if catching a few of them will deter the rest

    Health and safety "rules" do not dictate who may or may not use electrical equipment. Specific laws are bad laws; it is up to local policy to decide how students are supervised and under what conditions they may use equipment.

    Health and safety law indicates you must ensure that equipment provided is:

    • suitable for the intended use
    • safe for use, maintained in a safe condition and, in certain circumstances, inspected to ensure this remains the case
    • used only by people who have received adequate information, instruction and training

    We had similar problems here so we started locking the rooms. Then we found staff (many have the keys) unlocked them to let students in to do 'research' or 'homework' (ie play games and eat their dinner) so we gave up.

    I voiced my concerns for several years, ultimately I gave up. If SLT think its acceptable to pay for repairs/cleaning etc then its up to them
