Child Safety in the Home
Children under the age of five years are more at risk from an accident in the home than anywhere else. Many of these accidents are preventable. Developed specifically to address this issue, our course focuses on the most common types of home accidents.
Falls, burns, scalds, poisoning and fire are the biggest cause of serious and fatal injuries in the home. This course will show effective measures, both behavioural and environmental, to reduce the risk of injury from these accidents.
Course content includes:
- Identifying which children are most at risk and why
- Child development in relation to accidents
- Accident prevention in the home
- Risk assessment in the home
This one day course is accredited by City & Guilds and an optional assessment (a one hour City & Guilds exam) is available at the end of the course. Please indicate if you wish to take the exam when you RSVP.
Space is limited to 20 spaces, so please RSVP early. To RSVP, please email: Jacqui Lindo at Jacqui.Lindo@walthamforest.gov.uk
