Use of a resource or other website content that includes a practical activity requires the user to carry out a full risk assessment. Resources have been published in the form that they were originally submitted by the contributor. This means that any health and safety risk assessment measures detailed within the resources reflect general practice and standards at the time that the resources were published and cannot be assumed to be acceptable today or that inclusion of such assessments within the resources should negate your obligation to perform appropriate risk assessments before use of such resources.
Before using any resource that includes a practical activity, users should consult, and if necessary adapt, an appropriate employer’s risk assessment. Such risk assessment is the responsibility of the user, and the National Centre for Computing Education does not accept any responsibility and shall not be liable to you or any third party for any losses, damages, claims, expenses or outcomes resulting from the use of material included or referred to on this website.
