The teachers are also responsible to spot any hazards on a day-to-day ...view middle of the document...
The teachers will teach the children about health and safety, like washing their hands after the toilet and washing their hands before their eating their snacks or dinners. Also safety of themselves and others such as not to run within the building, but explain to them that they will have enough space outside to do so. Another thing s to teach them about crossing the road, not to run off and not to talk to strangers.
1.3 Describe how people in the setting are made aware of risks and hazards and encouraged to work safely
There are posters in places where the majority of people will see them and have the time to read them, for example: the staff room, corridor, by lunch queue wall, in a dining room, there posters for the children and posters for adults. They are interesting for children extra colour full and the adult one are on eye hight. The training is frequent and it is often in working hours so that everyone can attempt.
