a. Explain how health and safety risk assessments are monitored and reviewed
These will be too numerous to mention as all settings have umpteen policies and procedures - try and think of a setting as if it were your house, go round it and(play indoors/outdoors, toilets, kitchen, office, sleep area, dining area etc and then think of the people that visit you - religions, age, food prefernces etc then type up the headings in google etc such as look at 'Pre-school Outdoor play policy' or 'Pre-school Food hygiene'.

There are too many to mention such as maintenance of everything really, equality, Diversity, inclusion, senco, staff recrutiment, fire drills, visitors, keeping children safe, pets/animals - visiting for a learning experience or just walking down with parents -some have policies, it may appear that 'Prudence' the poodle is 'safe' but you don't like the look of the bigger dogs, so perhaps you decide to write up a policy -when animals visit (for learning experiences) - safety and hygiene etc and do you ask that no dogs/pets come into your playgroud/premises etc settings will make their policies unique to them.
Have a look on the PLA website to try and get a list of general policies.

b. Explain why it is important to take a balanced approach to risk management
Common sense - yes everyone and everything need to be safe, but if you are too over zealous you may be restricting learning experiences. So if you decide to take your children to a large park for their outing until someone raised their concern that there was a large lake and their child couldn't swim - would you cancel the trip? or would you put into practice your policies and procedures? and visit, do a risk assessment, make sure that adult/child ratio is high, ask for extra help (check your suitable persons policies re CRBs etc) Whatever we all do in our line of work/duty we have policies and procedures in place to ensure everything runs smoothly and that everyone is safe - but we must have a balanced approach to risk management not a neurotic or lackadaisical approach.

c. Recognize why it is important to follow carer’s instructions in respect of their child’s food allergies or intolerances.
1. Their religion/culture[ may deem that they don't or do eat certain foods, Your diversity, equality and inclusion policy would help you here as it will state that you include, respect and embrace all children and their families from whatever background, religion or beliefs they have.

2. If you don't adhere to a child's intolerances - what may happen if you give a diabetic, a coeliac or a child with a nut allergy something that they/their body/system cannot cope with? - serious illness or death.


d. Identify the dietary requirements of different cultural or religious groups.
Look these up in books or on the net by headings under food intolerances and you will get lots and the same with religion put in the faith you would like to know of such as sikh etc
