Welcome to the SSERC Technology Health and Safety pages

Design and technology (D&T) is a curriculum designed to produce literacy in design and related technologies. As a subject it involves students in designing in a practical context with a focus on, for example, food, textiles, resistant materials or digital media. It also involves the use of materials and machinery which have significant health and safety risks.

Via these pages (and through phone or email contact) SSERC technology offers health and safety guidance and information for the elected members, officers, teachers, technicians and student teachers of Scotland’s 32 Local Authorities and its other independent school members.

On these pages you will find amongst other things :

  • Technical Education risk assessments 
  • Technical Education Draft H&S Policy
  • Downloadable A3 Fixed Machinery Safety Signs
  • Drill Speed Poster
  • Further H&S/Machinery Reading

There is also more guidance to be found in various issues of the SSERC Bulletin
