More Protection For Our Children At School And College
Whether you are a parent or not most people would I’m sure agree that a child’s safety is paramount. Now childcare providers can do more to help make sure the safety of children in their care is as secure as possible. Childcare providers can actually take steps to reduce exposure to risk by having fail safe communication systems in place but what exactly is risk? Well, risk can be defined as a hazard, the possibility of incurring a loss or misfortune, a source of danger or put another way an accident waiting to happen. To help manage risk Schools, Kindergartens and other childcare providers can carry out a risk assessment at their premises. These are perhaps best organized, arranged and co-coordinated by the person who is ultimately responsible for the health and safety at the nursery or school. And risk assessments don’t have to be complicated. It just involves looking at each area of the school, nursery or premises and noting any potential hazards or risks. It also should involve looking at the existing safety measures in place and implementing additional safety measures which could reduce these risks even further. The fact is accidents do happen in nurseries, schools and in all types of business but by following some simple checks the chances of an accident happening can be reduced. Another way in which accidents and incidents in a school can be handled effectively is by having fail safe communication systems in place in which to report and deal with accidents as and when they happen. One such system which is proving to be a highly way to communicate in modern schools, nurseries and colleges is by using Two Way Radio.
