school has decided to ban anyone carrying aerosal deodrants as asthmatics having attacks. How would they impliment this?


Janet Report 7 Feb 2013 17:16

....same as any other rules. It can only be implemented when caught.-jl


Guinevere Report 7 Feb 2013 17:50

If aerosol deodorants are causing problems for asthmatic children in school then surely thoughtful pupils won't take it in any more.

And responsible parents will make sure they don't.


Porkie_Pie Report 7 Feb 2013 18:13

Rather than banning everything they should be teaching and along with parents teaching the children to act responsibly,

I wonder if the ban also extends to everyone attending the school including teachers and cleaners with their cleaning products



FootieAngel Report 7 Feb 2013 18:16

Its starting to be implimented this week after 2 members of staff with chronic asthma had attacks - one was hospitalised. So far the ban on aerosals is not being adhered to as the teenagers argue they need it after PE. All the incidents happened in other lessons not PE.


LaGooner Report 7 Feb 2013 18:18

Why not do as my Astmatic daughter does, use roll on deoderants. as it is the propellants that mainly cause the problems


FootieAngel Report 7 Feb 2013 18:18

To answer Roy - yes its extended to staff too even though they haven't been doing the spraying.


Guinevere Report 7 Feb 2013 18:51

The teenagers can use a roll on after showers.

What nasty kids they must be to persist in using aerosols when they know it's made people ill.


FootieAngel Report 7 Feb 2013 18:56

This is the mesasge school is trying to get across Guinevere.


Guinevere Report 7 Feb 2013 18:57

A few suspensions should sort them out.

All the pupils that still insist on taking/using aerosol deodarants should be taken round a childrens or adults ward in a hospital just to show them what damage aerosols can do to an asthamtic people.

And then educated on using roll on deodarants.

I can't stand aerosols near me as I have COPD and don't have them in the house.
My COPD started with Asthma

All spray cans have been banned at my Grandsons school for several years, not just because of their danger to asthmatics, but because several had been lit & thrown.

Spot checks of bags & a few detentions seems to work.


Kay???? Report 7 Feb 2013 20:42

I hope ithe ban goes for hairsprays aswell,its not just deodrants that spark off attacks.......

If the teachers concerned have no dealing with PE classes and dont enter the showers or the girls toilet/s ,how are they affected.?


FootieAngel Report 7 Feb 2013 21:19

The staff members are affected because students are spraying themselves in corridors and classroom whenever they feel like it. A hairspray was taken away today. Like Carol said there's other reasons why but health is priority.


aivlyS Report 7 Feb 2013 21:34

Well if a hairspray was taken away today why are you asking how they are going to implement it ... surely you know .


FootieAngel Report 7 Feb 2013 21:36

It too soon to know. confiscating a can of hairspray and taking away aerosols does not solve the problem.


aivlyS Report 7 Feb 2013 21:48

Well ...your OP is asking how they would implement this obviously you knew that they were implementing it by confiscating ... so same question why did you ask ? anyway why not ask the school , how is anyone on here supposed to know what they plan to do about it .


Kay???? Report 7 Feb 2013 22:04

Make it a school rule as they have done with taking knifes and the like....once the rule has been brought before a govenor meeting and the Ed dept approve pupils and parents notified by letter ,,,,,,hey presto!....any found being used in school will be taken off the offender......sorted.


TheBlackKnight Report 7 Feb 2013 22:07

In the USA they have asthma friendly schools where aerosols are banned.
