Hi Lorina ,

Firstly thanks for reply me back.
Now my question is :
In your role as an Early Childhood Education and Care worker, you will need to check toys and equipment for potential risk and hazards that may cause harm to children.
a) Explain in detail the steps involved in conducting a risk analysis on toys and what you would be checking for at each step.
b) Explain what steps you would take if you identified a toy or piece of equipment that presented a WHS hazard with an extreme risk.
c) Which policy, procedure would you refer to for advice on WHS issues?
Guidance: Include reporting procedures and the designated person that you would report to according to organizational procedures.
Refer to the Hierarchy of Control.
i have answered a and b but i am having problem in answering question c

i am also having problem in answering this one
b) Identify which sections in the following frameworks provide information and/or guidance on WHS and/or hazards and risks.
i. Education and Care Services National Regulations : my answer Standard 4.2
ii. National Quality Standards (NQS): my answer Standard 2.3
iii. Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) : my answer outcome 1 and 3
iv. Framework for School Aged Care in Australia (FSAC)

i am unable to answer the 4 th one and am not sure if the above answers are right or not

Thanks and regards

Hi, I am also stuck on this question.

In your role as an Early Childhood Education and Care worker, you will need to check toys and equipment for potential risk and hazards that may cause harm to children.
C) policies and/or procedures to reference WHS issues

I've been looking at the WHS act and this section therein - division 5 regulation 80-82 but I feel like I'm so wrong with that. please help point me in the right direction.

I'm having trouble with this question too.

"What policy/procedure would you refer to for advice on WHS issues?"

Any guidance on where to find the answer?

Thanks,
Sarah
