Glass Drink Bottles

Glass Drink Bottles

There has been an increasing number of breakages of glass drink bottles around the College. Often, when this occurs, students are put at risk of slipping on the wet floor and possibly falling on the broken glass. Whilst our Maintenance team is very quick to clean up after a breakage, there remains a real risk of harm from slips and cuts. 

Whilst the College supports the need to remain hydrated and acknowledges scientific evidence around possible contaminants leaching out of PET and BPA bottles, we ask that the supply of fragile glass drink bottles be reconsidered given the increased risk to safety.

Students are also encouraged to drink from the filtered 'bubble' taps conveniently located around the College.
