      I am re-training from an IT background to work as a TA.
      I have covered risk assessment in a manufacturing environment and was keen to see the implementation of safety in schools.
      The school in this video was DESIGNED with WIDE coridoors so that in the event of an evacuation all the staff and pupils could exit quickly and safely - BUT there were shelves attached to walls, desks, chairs and all sorts of other obstacles that people in a rush could bump into, hurt themselves and potentially prevent a safe exit. In the same way that fire doors and other doors that lead on to coridoors should not be proped open, coridoors must be kept clear. In an ideal world fire extinguishers should also be put in a recess in the wall, not mounted in the corridoor.
