Preventing mistakes and accidents
As a child care provider we are expected to have a Duty of care within our work setting, we are all given the appropriate attention, watching for potential hazards, preventing accidents or any mistakes that might occur. They will be taught good hygiene and to help promote good health by being made aware of the importance of this, e.g. healthy diet, washing hands before dealing with food, wash hands after we have blown our noses. We will be guiding the children in the right direction of being positive role models, and helping them make informative and wise choices. We will also be following my necessary steps which will be in my policy and taking the appropriate action when a child becomes ill, this is to stop the infection from spreading in my setting and keep the children safe. If a duty of care is not met in a role that requires it, you may be held accountable for allowing negligence to occur. Good Hygiene
