Unit 4 Perd
Two ways in which I have been involved in to make sure the children's safety is at high level are identifying possible hazards in the setting and maintaining security during arrival and departure times in the setting. Possible hazards in the setting:
When I arrive at the setting I will go around the room to make sure all possible objects that could cause danger are safe and any toys that could cause harm are removed or fixed. Every morning and all the way through the day I will keep checking the sockets to make sure they all have a plug protector in unless it is being used. If there is not a plug socket protector in a unused socket I will get a spare one and put it in. if I cannot find another socket protector I will see if another room has any spare ones or I ask another member of staff for their opinion in what I can do if I don’t know my self. Before toys are put in the room for the children to play will they will be safety checked. Through out each day staff will keep an eye on toys which have small pieces to them in which the children can cause danger to them self. If they think it is do risky they will remove it straight away. Any objects that have broke or have sharp edges will be fixed or put in the bin. For example I saw the plastic box was broke and there were sharp edges on it. I knew that the shape edges would cause harm to the children so it was removed from the play area straight away and put in the bin. I think my role for this situation was done fast and easy. I saw the hazard and thought fast of the dangers and removed the hazard fast.
