Workplace Cluster

Post by Lyysh » Sun Jun 05, 2022 7:33 am

Morning all,

New here and new to the course.

Need some help with finding the information with these questions. I have searched everywhere and cannot find what I need, is it just common sense or legit somewhere where it states the information

During the transition from inside to outside play, Sally (two (2) years) has a toileting accident on the carpet area.

a) Explain how you would manage this situation, including how you prioritise the tasks, how you manage the children, how you manage your health and safety and the health and safety of the children.

b) Identify how this would impact on the tasks you have for the day and how you would manage this?


Also below I have answered some of the questions

A fire breaks out in the staff room. The nominated supervisor asks you to ring the fire brigade and then help with evacuating the children.

a) What is a common signal of an emergency?

Sound of the alarm


b) What information would you provide during the 000 phone call?
A contact number or UHF radio channel (remote areas)
Your name and the education and care service name
Your location - know your street address and the nearest cross road
Note any specific landmarks
The exact location of the emergency within your service – e.g. in the backyard
Best entrance to use;
A brief description of the emergency situation; and
The name of the person who will meet the emergency services

c) Outline the procedures you would follow to ensure the safety of the children?

Cannot find this answer


d) Explain why it is important to discuss emergencies and practice evacuation procedures with children?

Cannot find this answer
