Slips trip up our teachers
Education Institute of Scotland (EIS) General Secretary, Ronnie Smith, insisted that if employers took more care in providing safe facilities for pupils and teachers, then injuries of the avoidable kind would become less common. He said, "The figures on compensation claims held by the EIS show that the biggest risk to teachers and lecturers in the workplace remains slips, trips or falls." The Education Institute of Scotland is Scotland's biggest teaching union.
