Safety tips when working with children and how to get advice on claiming in Kettering if something goes wrong
If you are going to work in any job that involves working with children, you need to know how to keep both them and yourself safe at all times. If people have trusted you to take care of their children then they are expecting that their children will be safe all day long, so that they can focus on whatever they have to do for the day.
Taking care of children isn’t as easy as it looks, particularly if you are looking after more than one child, as you need to give each child the same amount of attention, to be sure that everyone is ok.
- Watch them at all times. When you are working with any children, of any age, you need to be keeping an eye on them at all times. You may think that older children are more likely to stay where they are, but after a certain age curiosity can cause them to wander off and get lost, so it is always best to keep an eye on them.
- Make sure that you are not alone. If you are looking after more than five children, you should be accompanied by someone else who can help you. Otherwise, it will be impossible for you to keep an eye on the rest of the children if one child is injured or needs your help in some other way.
- Stick to familiar places. If you are looking after children which aren’t yours, the best way to keep them all safe throughout the day is to take them to places which are familiar to you, so that you can navigate through them with ease and find the help you need if something goes wrong.
- Keep them clean. Make sure that all of the children in your care know to wash their hands frequently throughout the day, and that you enforce this.
