Day.Green-Schools Travel Officers will work directly with schools this week to promote scooting and offer scooting skills workshops from Monday to Friday.This year selected schools have also had fully-funded scooter parking installed by Green-Schools.Announcing the week, Green-Schools Travel Manager Jane Hackett said:“We began Scoot to School Week to answer the growth in students arriving at school every morning by scooter. Scooting has since become an unstoppable force for students and to reflect this we’ve also installed scooter parking in selected schools this year. It’s not just for children by the way – with the advent of adult scooters adults can join them on the school run, and continue on to their workplace, too!”Visit www.greenschoolsireland.org for more, including scooting tips and resources.To date, over 1700 primary and secondary schools countrywide have taken part or are taking part in the Green-Schools Travel programme, implementing sustainable travel action plans in their schools.Since 2008, 1,284 schools have been awarded the Green Flag for Travel, representing successful completion of the travel theme of the Green-Schools programme.The ultimate aim of the Green-Schools Travel programme is to encourage students, parents and teachers to walk, cycle, scoot, Park ‘n’ Stride, use public transport or car pool instead of using the private car on the school run.

The number of incidents reported to the Civil Aviation Authority totalled1,250 during 2000-2001. Violence was involved in 11 per cent of incidents, withalcohol and smoking identified as the two main causes. Cabin crew are at much greater risk of violence than other passengers, thereport by the Department of Transport claims, and staff need extensive trainingon how to deal with difficult passengers. Allan Booth, chief safety training officer for Monarch Airlines, said,”We have a duty to protect our crew and train in conflict management sothey can protect themselves in a hostile environment. Monarch Airlines sends all its aircrew on conflict management courses toequip them to deal with violent incidents. The instructors who train flightcrew are sent on a three-day training programme on conflict management run bySecuricare. “We have protocols and procedures which give best practice to deal withthe neanderthals that sometimes get on our aircraft,” said Booth. The report also said 141 passengers were prevented from boarding aircraftlast year as they were considered a risk. Dominic Paul, director of people services and business development for Go,said the best way to protect staff was to prevent potentially disruptiveindividuals from boarding aircraft. “The safety of passengers and crew is paramount. Before the flighttakes off, if the ground staff, cabin or flight crew believe a passenger couldcompromise safety or be a threat, then they won’t let them fly.” By Katie Hawkins Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more
