We aim to make children, parents and staff aware of health and safety issues to minimise the hazards and risk to enable the children to thrive in a healthy and safe environment. We have clear policies and procedures in place about all aspects of health and safety. In order to achieve these aims we have a designated member of staff responsible for health and safety and hygiene issues, which is our manager of the setting. My manager has undertaken regular health and safety training and regular updates her knowledge and understanding. Every adult working with children in our setting is responsible for their safety. We ensure that the environment that children are working/ playing in is regular checked, before and during activities. We have a responsibility to provide a safe environment for the children who attend the setting. All staff are aware of the potential hazards within the pre-school and the surrounding environment and actively protects children from hazards. Any visitors who come in to the setting must follow safety guidelines to protect children and young people as well; we must think about – how long will they be in the setting for? Their role and responsibilities? Which areas of the building do they need access to? Will they be in contact with the children in the setting? (For example the fire brigade may come in to do a chat and let the children look at their equipment ETC).
A few things we take in to consideration as a team regarding the health and safety of the children and staff would be;
- Are our cleaning products put away in the cupboard, out of the reach of children? These will include antibacterial sprays, bleach and other chemicals we use.
- When we are dealing with spillages of urine, blood, vomit, faeces. Will always ensure we wear protective clothing such as aprons and disposable gloves as appropriate. We will dispose of these correctly by putting these in our yellow bin provided. All staff are aware of how infections can be transmitted.

Hope this helps xx

Hi Jadey,

You need to discuss:

Any activity involves risk, however if the activity is well planned and organised, with thoughts to the possible risks (Carrying out risk assessments) the likelihood of an accident happening is minimal. Staff need to balance the risk of an activity against the benefit to and safety of the child.
Risk and challenges are important to children, avoiding risks and challenging would result in a very timid child/ adult who would lack in everyday skills and abilities and wouldn’t be aware of risks and dangers. Children need to explore and take risks to learn and develop.

Link this to the UN Convention – Articles,
How children learn and develop by making choices and trying out new experiences but they do not always have the skills and judgements to make safe choices. So how might you support children?
Children need freedom to make choices however they must be kept safe so how do you deal with this dilemma. For example: A disabled child may be restricted in play at home because of parental concern that the child could hurt themselves. However in a well controlled environment the child could be encouraged to explore and try out new skills.
How have you encouraged children to take risks, have freedom, choices and independence however maintained their safety?

Hope this helps

hiya ash-a,

i struggled on this one aswell but i basically spoke about different risks children are faced with everyday and how teachers go about teaching children about risk and letting them experience risk while sticking to the health and safety requirements, one example i spoke about was doing say a sticking activity with leaves, letting the children go searching for leaves, going into bushes can be dangerous because of prickles but children need to learn it can be dangerous and they need to be careful while exploring the bushes linking with the activity..

hope this helps

Seen my assessor yesterday with regar to this question and she told me to write that the UN conventions state that children have the right to make there own decisions yet we have a duty of care to ensure the children in our care don't get harmed or injured so we have to let children make there own decisions yet if we think it will cause them injuries we have to step in and stop them making that decision, all you have to do is write what I have said and then find a incident that has occurred within your setting and write about that too as your example of this happening, I haven't had my work marked on this yet but this is what I was told to write. Hope it helps Chloe x
