It provides students with the confidence of knowing that they are able to ensure that their actions contribute towards promoting health and safety in the workplace. It also stresses the importance of ensuring that individual roles and responsibilities are clearly understood by all members of staff. Knowledge is key, and this in itself can greatly reduce any potential risks, and helps to prevent the chances of accident or injury from occurring in the workplace.

We are exposed to risks just by going to work each day. Some risks are minor, and some are potentially hazardous. The function of health and safety regulation is to help reduce these risks so that employees can work with the confidence of knowing that their health and safety is not being compromised. This confidence boosts morale, encourages employees to be more productive and helps to create a stronger working relationship between employer and employee.

10. Health and Safety in Early Years: Delve into the extensive topic of health and safety

Get to grips with some of the key aspects that are directly related with working in an early years environment. As a childcare practitioner, it’s essential that you adopt healthy and safe practices in the workplace, in order to ensure the children in your care are safe and secure, and their welfare is prioritised. Courses such as this one will help you to grasp some of the essential concepts, so that you can make sure that your learning environment is as safe as possible.

Avoid Accidents, Assess Risks

As an adult, you’ll know that many accidents that we see on a daily basis can be avoided if the proper care is taken and the necessary risk assessments are completed. As we know, children can be extremely accident-prone; being curious or ‘trying to run before you can walk’ are natural parts of growing up! However, more serious accidents and injuries can be prevented with a well-executed risk assessment, and learning how to perform one of these is a fundamental part of this course that is aimed at Academic Level.

Encourage Independence

While the easy option would be to over-supervise children during their early years, so that they don’t have the opportunity to suffer accident or injury, it’s important to promote independence and encourage them to manage risk themselves as well. Learning how to make their own judgements and learn what is safe and what isn’t is an essential life skill that can help safeguard their future well-being, and it’s up to you, as a childcare practitioner, to identify and manage potential hazards, while also teaching the children in your care how to keep themselves safe and sound.

Knowledge is key, and this in itself can greatly reduce any potential risks, and helps to prevent the chances of accident or injury from occurring in the workplace.

We are exposed to risks just by going to work each day. Some risks are minor, and some are potentially hazardous. The function of health and safety regulation is to help reduce these risks so that employees can work with the confidence of knowing that their health and safety is not being compromised. This confidence boosts morale, encourages employees to be more productive and helps to create a stronger working relationship between employer and employee.

10. Health and Safety in Early Years: Delve into the extensive topic of health and safety

Get to grips with some of the key aspects that are directly related with working in an early years environment.

Courses such as this one will help you to grasp some of the essential concepts, so that you can make sure that your learning environment is as safe as possible.

Avoid Accidents, Assess Risks

As an adult, you’ll know that many accidents that we see on a daily basis can be avoided if the proper care is taken and the necessary risk assessments are completed. As we know, children can be extremely accident-prone; being curious or ‘trying to run before you can walk’ are natural parts of growing up! However, more serious accidents and injuries can be prevented with a well-executed risk assessment, and learning how to perform one of these is a fundamental part of this course that is aimed at Academic Level.

Encourage Independence

While the easy option would be to over-supervise children during their early years, so that they don’t have the opportunity to suffer accident or injury, it’s important to promote independence and encourage them to manage risk themselves as well. Learning how to make their own judgements and learn what is safe and what isn’t is an essential life skill that can help safeguard their future well-being, and it’s up to you, as a childcare practitioner, to identify and manage potential hazards, while also teaching the children in your care how to keep themselves safe and sound.
