Accidents can happen anywhere in and around the home; there are potential hazards in every home, such as household chemicals, hot water, sharp objects and heights. Young children are not able to assess the risks all these hazards can present. Their perception of the living environment is not as developed as an adults and their lack of experience can also contribute to them having an accident. The course will look at access to supplementary guidance, risk factors, preventative measures and treatments after accidents. This course will allow you to: Develop knowledge and skills relating to the prevention of unintentional childhood injury when working with families. Understand the significance of unintentional childhood injuries. Link in to other media providing supplementary guidance. Examine different aspects of child safety. Focus on prevention.
