Safety manual for schools launched

TIMES NEWS NETWORK[ FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2002 11:56:12 PM ]


NEW DELHI: How does one react if there is a fire in a school? Or an
emergency in the pool? A safety manual for schools launched by the Council
for the Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE) talks about all this
and more. But more importantly, it shows how schools can prevent situations
like these from occurring.

The reference guide deals with all aspects of safety within schools
pertaining to classrooms, laboratories, libraries and outside schools
relating to playgrounds, swimming pools and field trips. This practical
reference guide to school safety highlights various issues like electrical
and fire safety, air quality and drinking water.


CISCE chief executive and secretary Francis Fanthome said schools need to
ensure that safety norms are enforced. ‘‘The manual provides a framework to
handle emergencies, administer first aid and other information,’’ he added.
CISCE has 1,180 affiliated schools.


The manual also outlines how schools can conduct and use data from safety
audits. Safety audits are an assessment of the extent to which the
stipulated safety procedures for a particular area/task are being followed.
Audits can be used to identify weaknesses in safety norms and check
compliance with set standards and reinforce positive safe behaviour.


CISCE is also planning to enlarge some of the visuals given in the manual in
the form of posters which can be put in high-risk areas such as swimming
pools, head of the council’s research and develop wing Punam Sodhi said.


The manual addresses students and adults as well. For instance, it gives 10
commandments for students to be followed in a science laboratory, how a fire
drill should be conducted, what is the right sitting posture, among other
things.
