Is Mr Bradshaw too busy with the Labour leadership issue to act?

Lightning ProtectionPosted by Sheila Oliver Sun, July 03, 2016 08:03:58

Dear Mr Bradshaw MP

Forches Primary School

As you are aware the 500 plus schools in Devon under the Devon County Council remit have not been provisioned with any Lightning Risk Assessment.

I have recently received a Risk Assessment Schedule for this school along with the latest Lightning Protection Test results.

The Lightning Test results confirms the Lightning Protection System does NOT comply with the BS/EN/ 62305/2011.

Their risk assessment schedule also confirms the school has asbestos within the building and does NOT include any reference to lightning.

I have to say that this particular school is relying upon a generic Risk Assessment ref the Devon County Council Education Authority ref their form RA03, which at best is unsafe and at worst, unlawful. Risk Assessment shall be site specific.

It must be assumed the other 500 plus schools are also reliant upon generic risk assessment form RA03 for all risks. This is a very dangerous practice and I call upon my MP to call for a public inquiry into all aspects of Health & Safety at Devon Schools.

For your information, action and files

Yours sincerely

Alan M Dransfield
