The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) has backed a government report that found there to be no evidence of health and safety laws preventing school trips.

Many schools may wish to adopt new safety signage and plan more field excursions, after ministers agreed that practical lessons and trips are "essential contributors" to good quality science education.

Richard Jones, head of policy and public affairs at IOSH, said: "We’re pleased the government welcomes the finding that there's no credible evidence health and safety legislation prevents science practicals or field trips."

Mr Jones further expressed that he is happy that the government is continuing to work alongside universities and professional bodies in regards to health and safety.

Elsewhere, North Wales Weekly News has reported that a playground in North Wales has been described as unsafe following a health and safety report.

The facility at Penrhynside is viewed as hazardous because it is located directly off a busy road.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801226758-ADNFCR
