SMALL SAFE STEPS
We started in 2019 a four-part SAFETY program designed to be completed by Childcare services as a group. The program material has been written specifically to comply with Australian Work Health and Safety (WHS) legislation to help us maintain a safe work place for employees, volunteers and contractors. Completion of the program will also help us meet the National Quality Standards and create a safe learning environment for children in our care.
The program has 40 steps that we will have to complete. A new risk management document, policies and procedures will be developed based in this program.
A course for educators will be developed with a summary of this program. This course will include WHS information, risk management templates, fire management, lifting techniques, hazard & accident reporting, safety inspection templates, evacuation, security measures... All we need to do our FDC a safe place for staff, educators, families and children.
