Every month, thousands and thousands of people throughout the UK embark on evening and part time classes to teach them new skills and to give them a fun hobby to partake in.
From needlecraft to martial arts, we’re a nation of jolly learners and many people go from class to class seeking as much knowledge as possible.
Whatever the nature of the class you’re taking, you have the right to be safe as you go about it.

The law states that any person who enters a public building has the right to be safe as they do so.

They in turn must take all reasonable steps to safeguard members of the public.

The rules apply whatever the nature of the course you have embarked upon but if the course or class in question carries with it more risk, the tutor has even more responsibilities as they must make additional allowances for safety.
