Guangzhou updates campus safety rules

The Guangzhou government will instigate a comprehensive package of trial regulations to improve security at primary and secondary schools from April 1.

The move will set a precedent in the country by prescribing detailed standards for the equipment used on school buses and by establishing road privileges for school buses.

Under the scheme, the buses will have to be equipped with a global positioning system traveling data recorder and other safety features, including handrails, seat belts, fire extinguishers and first-aid kits.

At least one full-time safety official should also be present on each bus to supervise students during journeys.

School buses in Guangzhou will also be allowed to use local bus lanes and no vehicle will be permitted to pass a school bus when it has stopped to load or unload students.

"Guangzhou is not the first city to issue campus security regulations, but its package is more detailed than in any other city," said Lin Qi, deputy director of the legislative affairs office of the Guangzhou city government.

For example, whereas other cities have only promised to strengthen supervision of noise levels on school grounds, the Guangzhou government has specified that the noise level on its campuses should not exceed 70 decibels by day or 55 decibels at night.

Shen Ziming, chief superintendent of the Guangzhou Bureau of Education, added that the package is "forward-looking".

For example, the trial regulations highlight a number of "must-nots" for vocational secondary schools. The schools must not send first graders to internships, send students to work at commercial entertainment venues such as bars and night clubs, or hire agencies to arrange internships.
