UK Government Slashes School Safety Guidelines

Government officials have reduced the number of regulations to ensure student safety to only eight pages.

This week, the British government, under the Conservative party, has taken steps to whittle down guidelines for health and safety in classrooms established under the Labour party prior a power shift in 2010. With only eight pages of mandates to follow, education staff has considerably less material to cover than the previous page-count of 150.

There has been a recurring theme of reduction in this government. According to “The Telegraph,” more than 75 percent of the edicts established in recent before 2012 have been revoked.

Now, this eight-page list of procedures is dedicated to keeping students safe both on campuses and on school field trips. In fact, the guidelines issued to schools are 6,978 pages, down from the 28,455 pages it was previously.

The shift to a more direct assertion of guidelines by the Conservative party comes in response to what some considered over-regulation under the Labour party.
