Technician should have reported bad behaviour
He talks about chemicals being squirted behind the teacher's back. I am sure this does happen occasionally, but if Mr Forbes has evidence about potentially criminal behaviour, the question is: wha did he do? As an employee he is obliged to inform his employer about health and safety problems. I hope, too, his employer has taken some action, because if a serious injury were to occur and it could be shown that the employer had ignored previous warnings, the Health and Safety Executive would take a dim view.
