Risk Assessment in Settings

Risk Assessment & Accident Prevention


The Risk Assessment and Accident Prevention course is an IN HOUSE training course for the full staff team. It really helps staff to understand their responsibility to supervise children safely and to conduct full risk assessments.


This training is offered at a time when Ofsted are taking stronger measures regarding the regulations with providers. There are new regulations regarding these issues and these come into force in September 2014.

Course Objectives


The purpose of this course is to enable practitioners to consider their responsibility by looking at the wider implications of risk assessment and their involvement. The course starts with some fundamental understanding before considering practice issues and case studies. It is deliberately emotive in places specifically to increase the sense of responsibility staff have when supervising children.
