What more do I need to know?
The change in legislation in 2017 allows schools to make the life-saving decision to obtain spare AAI devices without a prescription. These devices can be bought in addition to any devices already carried by school pupils.
Schools have an insurance in place to cover staff who may find it necessary to administer medication such as AAIs, with prior written authorisation from the parent or guardian. This is a legal requirement, as stated by the Department of Education.
Be aware of the high risk areas in your school:
CATERING FACILITIES (CANTEENS & DINING HALLS) in case of allergen consumption.
PHYSICAL EDUCATION FACILITIES for outside activities where there is a risk of bee or wasp stings.
SCHOOL TRANSPORTATION for out-of-school extracurricular activities.
