explain how practitioners can take steps tp protect themselves within their everyday practice in the work setting during on-site and off-site visits
An explanation of how practitioners can take steps to protect themselves within their everyday practice in the work setting and on off site visits. An important part of a practitioner?s role would be to read all policies and procedures these are put [ [ into place to protect them and the children that you look after. In the workplace you can protect yourself by: ? Always follow your settings
the policies and procedures. ? You should avoid being alone in a closed room with a child. ? If a child is late being collected then two members of staff stay with the child until parents/carers arrive. ? Staff and children?s times on arrivals and departures are recorded in the register. ? When incidents or accidents occur always get a witness to sign. ? If an incident happens before the child enters the setting, write up information in incident book and get parent to sign before they leave. Off site visits you protect yourself by: ? Always follow your settings policies and procedures. ? Carry out a full risk assessment. Think of age/stage of children and where and when and how you are getting to the venue, always have the child?s safety in mind. ? Get parental/carers consent. ? Make sure insurance covers the outing. ? Staff ratio is in line within the guidance of Ofsted (possibly go lower with ratio) ? Take emergency contact numbers, mini first aid box and any medical notes that could be relevant in case of accidents or emergencies. Hope it helps ] ]
