Short answer questions
1. In your own words define the following:
a) Hazard
• Small objects left in reach of children-Small object left in a child reach can cause chocking.
• Frayed cords- frayed cords can electrocute a child.
• Chemicals- children can drink them get chemical burns from then.
• Object stacked precariously that could full- object falling on children head can course damage
• Medications- medication a dangerous to a child it can cause them to end up in hospital
• Noisy machinery- hearing loss due to the loud noises
• Broken toys- can cut or hurt a child and cause more damage
• Stoves- a child can get burnt by a stove if it has been turn on.
• Sliding door- fingers can get caught
• Knifes- a child can cut them self, a child can stab them self or another person
• Forks- a child can stab them self or another person or poke someone eyes out
• Any sharp or point objects- stab them self or another person or poke someone eyes out
• Height off play equipment- can full off and get cut bruises or brake bones.
• Metal objects that have been in the sun- burnt or scalded
• Hard surfaces- if a child falls over they can get bruises
• Thing that protrude or tangle- kids can get tangled up in them and chock them self or strangle another kid with it.
• Lack of shade- to much sun can cause sun burn dehydration heat stroke
• Not applying sun safe stuff -to much sun can cause sun burn dehydration
• Not wearing a hat- sun burn dehydration, heat stroke
• Heater- a child can get burnt by the heater a heater can also cause fires
• Electrical out lets- children can put thing in there that r not meant for it and get electrocuted
• Cot accessories
• Fire- a child can get Burt, inhale to much smoke.
• Water or liquid split on the ground- a child can slip over and crack there head open, bruising, other broken bones
• Carefully cover the cutting edge of the tin cans with tape and wrapping the cans with strong brown paper. This will avoid the children getting cut during the play and while handling the cans during the decoration (kids are to make their own tin can using coloured paper, stickers, markers).
• instead of just marking a line with masking tape, I would make a box where the person throwing has to remain inside and the others waiting have to remain outside. This will avoid the kids smacking one another or bumping into each other.
• Set the table in an isolated area where other kids cannot be hit by the ball and away from windows or things that could get damaged.
• Sunscreen and hats before the play.
• A quick time-out in the middle of the game to drink some water and have a rest.
b) Risk

• Undertaking regular risk assessments of the service’s environment to ensure that risk is minimised at all times.
• Check the House duty check list ever day to ensure that every is safe and at a stand for the children to safely use.

3. Identify two (2) safety measures or actions that educators can take when using and storing dangerous products, such as cleaning agents and chemicals, in an early childhood education and care service.

c) The floor in the children’s bathroom becomes very slippery when wet.
d) Parents leave their strollers and prams in the foyer of the service during the day.
e) The fridge in the babies and toddlers room has a frayed electrical cord with wiring exposed.
Assess each scenario using the hazard grid in Table 5.2 of your textbook, ‘The early childhood educator for Certificate III’. Decide on the possible consequence of each hazard and its likelihood; the risk factor (Extreme, High, Medium or Low).
Identify the actions required to remedy the hazard – how it can be fixed.
Record your responses in the table that follows over the page.












Hazards Consequence Likelihood how can the hazard be fixed
a. The cement path from the gate to the entrance of the service has cracked and part of it has subsided. Broken noise

HOUSEKEEPING INSPECTION FORM
DATE INSPECTED: INSPECTED BY WHOM:
AREA/ROOM/OUTSIDE CHECK FOR: CORRECTIVE ACTION REQUIRED?
OUTSIDE • Fence off securely and effectively all sides of outdoor play areas from roads, water hazards, and driveways. Maintain fence, have correct height, install childproof self-locking devices on gates.

• Car driveways and parking areas – be aware that car driveways and areas where cars park or reverse are particularly hazardous areas for children. Ask families when alighting from their cars to hold their child’s hand, and take special care when entering or leaving a driveway or parking near the home.
• Check outdoor areas and play equipment regularly for health and safety hazards.
• Choking hazards outdoors, e.g. pebbles.
• Climbing and play equipment - stable, maintained, meets relevant Australian Standards. Teach children to use safely.

• Record details and notifying parents of any child accident.
• Safe play rules and adequate safe play areas - talk with children about how to play safely. Maintain safe layouts for outdoor play areas to avoid collisions between children.
• Sandpits - cover when not in use, regularly clean, rake, and remove sand soiled by faeces or blood. Hose sandpits at end of day after removing contaminated sand and material.
• Snakes, spiders, insects – keep the centre clean of infestations, teach children the dangers.

INDOOR SAFETY CHECK LIST
• Access for children and adults with disability - ensure safe access into, within and out of the centre, security, toilet and washing facilities, and check for hazards for wheelchairs and people with impaired sight, hearing or mobility.
• Barriers - age appropriate, child proof, self locking barriers to balconies, stairways, kitchen, bathroom, laundry, garage, other levels in the centre, front and back garden.
• Children at risk – maintain extra security and supervision for children at special risk. Choking hazards e.g. small toy parts, beads, nuts, blind and curtain cords, plastic bags, sandwich bags, balloons.
• Decorations and children’s artwork – do not place near ceiling fans, air conditioners or heaters. Avoid use of tacks, pins, and staples.
• Doors – use finger jam protectors.

I'm really not sure why you are having to resubmit this assignment. The only questions which may not fave direct responses are the following from the interview:
d. What are the various roles and responsibilities during an evacuation?what actions are required of the Nominated Supervisor/Coordinator, delegated First Aid Officer, educators and other staff members at the service.

• That all staff for each room have there roles to check to make shore everyone is there and ok
• Evacuation kits (eg nappys wipes blanket)
• Make shore the kids are all ok if not comfort them

This response doesn't define what each member of staff has to do. It's just a general response. Like who is responsible for getting the evacuation kits, the roles etc.

How does the service ensure that educators, including relief educators and other staff members are informed about and understand the service’s emergency evacuation procedure?

• Practice there policy once a month to ensure that everyone no wat they are doing
• Online training
• Any changes to the procedure a memo will be made for all the staff members

Relief educators may not be able to attend training if they are only at the centre for 1 or 2 days. So, instead an evacuation folder should be made avaiable and be in the staff room for all staff to read and have access to. This should be updated when necessary.

Also it mentions: A brief report - have you done this?

These are the only points I can think of that may have been missed...

Dear,

I have a few questions:
1. Briefly explain:
a. The Work Health and Safety authority in your State or Territory.
c. The WHS policies and procedures that a service is required to develop under the Education and Care Services National Regulations.
e. The injury, incident and trauma records and documents that are legally required and the documents that must be sent to ACECQA?
2. Using the ACECQ template complete an incident, injury, trauma and illness report for a child.
3. The WHS roles and responsibilities of workers and Persons Conducting a Business or Undertaking (PCBUs)
4. Planning and preparing to work safely is an important element of WHS. Give three examples of things you should do before using equipment.
5. Why is it important that you identify and manage your stress and fatigue levels? What action(s) would you take if you felt you were experiencing workplace stress or fatigue?

Can't find the answer, any help
thank you

Hi Lorina,

I get bit trouble in HLTWHS001 regarding two scenario.

Scenario 1 Flooding
During the day a burst water pipe floods the outdoor play space. Children and staff are unable to access this area and parents will have limited access to the Education and Care service to collect children in the afternoon.
Question 1 :What service policy/procedure would you follow to guide your response to this situation ?

Scenario 2 Hazards
You have recently started working at a small Preschool and After School care service that operates out of a community hall. The building and playground is run down due to multiple users and limited funds. You have noticed some hazards that have the potential to harm the health and wellbeing of others. You have reported these on the daily safety checklist but also have some ideas to further minimise risks to others.

Question 1: What policy/procedure would you follow to guide your response to this situation?
Question 2: 2. What other workplace procedures could you participate in with the team to find solutions?

Please get me back as soon as possible. I am really trouble on it.

Thank you

4 - So the question is asking how children can still do physical play inside... what activities could you do... e.g. group games, dancing, parachute games etc.

5 - Think about how a child may feel when they are angry, do they understand their feelings, do they know how to control them?
