    Just run the hot taps that the children are allowed access to and use that. The temp is checked and regulated for safety so you can be sure that no-one will complain or have any cause to thing that anything unsafe is being used.

    That's what gets me about some places with hot taps. They say the water will be hot and then it comes out ridiculously hot. Dangerously hot.
    Common sense is necessary.
  4. Do you really do a risk assessment for science lessons using hot water?
    I've never done one at all and I sometimes use a kettle to show evaporation/condensation!
    I would suggest your own hand in a jug of water will tell you whether or not it's at a safe temperature.

    Well the guidelines for a baby are 37 degrees and I find that quite hot as I have sensitive skin.
