6 ways to promote classroom safety

6 ways to promote classroom safety 1. Child Safety means keep dangerous supplies out of reach Scissors, bulletin board tacks, glue – all things that shouldn't be easily accessible for preschool-aged kids. Make sure to keep any sharp objects, choking hazards, poisonous materials and other potentially hazardous supplies on a high shelf or lock away in a cupboard. The last thing you want is a student standing on their tippy-shoes to reach a bin of sharp items on a just-out-of-reach ledge. When supplies like these are out and available during craft time, it's important to talk with your students about how to properly use these tools.   2. Design the room properly  Classroom arrangement plays a large part in the classroom safety, Are classrooms open and uncluttered, with nothing to inhibit safe traffic flow?  Large pieces of furniture and sharp corners increase the chances of bumps and bruises. The classroom should be set up in a way where children can move about easily without obstacles.   3. Keep the classroom clean:  If you put a bunch of children in a classroom together there are bound to be germs and common childhood illness shared but with proper standards of cleanliness followed, these too can be kept to a minimum. Children touched everything. Toys, classroom furniture, and any other classroom facilities should be cleaned and disinfected regularly. This can significantly reduce the spread of germs. Children can play an active part in classroom cleanliness by washing their hands frequently. They can also alert the teacher or aides to any spills that may happen, so they may be cleaned up promptly. This can help avoid slips and falls.   4. Practice emergency plans  Emergency plans don't do much good if your preschoolers don't know the drill. Walk kids through the experience before your school's first fire drill to prevent any crying or frightened sobs. Roleplay the whole event, from alarm to the moment when it's safe to come back inside. Then what that first fire drill rings, your students won't be alarmed.     5. Classroom Supervision  Children are easily distracted and something outside the classroom may attract their attention. Rules about not leaving the classroom without permission should be in place and strictly enforced. Children should only leave the classroom in the company of the teacher, a staff member, or a parent.   6. Keep communication flowing  Keep an open line of communication between yourself and your students' parents, as well as between yourself and your students. Your classroom is a community. Open communication will help you all work together to keep students safe. Additionally an open line of communication between yourself and your students. Your classroom policies and other emergency information.   Products that are similar:  Corner Guard Table Corner Guard Standard Corner Guard Deluxe Finger Alert 170-180° Finger Alert 110° Finger Alert Extreme

Top 5 Injury Risks for Children and How to Prevent them

Top 5 Injury Risks for Children and How to Prevent them With children spending two to six hours a day in kindergartens, the main concern for parents is of course if they have chosen the safest environment possible for their kids. In 1960, child experts stated that ‘’it is now generally recognized that accidents constitute a major problem in public health’’. This marked the beginning of the rising awareness for child safety. This view has been confirmed by the World Health Organization’s regional office for Europe who cited injury had become the leading cause of death in developed, high-income countries. In developing countries, the acknowledgment of child injury as a major problem is more recent. However, reducing child injuries is possible: Experience and research have shown that most child injuries are avoidable in all countries. Drowning Drowning is one of the leading causes of fatality among children under the age of five. Toddlers are facing the highest risk as they have already gained more mobility than babies but are still in development. An average of two children drown each day in the United States – research from Virginia showed, over the last decade 34% of drownings occurred in home pools and 29% in bathtubs. Even if children are already able to swim, they are often not strong or aware enough to steer away from dangers in the water. Never let your child out of sight in the bathtub and around swimming pools Teach your children how to swim or stay afloat Use floating devices like water wings or life jackets Burning Children are especially at risk of getting burns since their skin is more sensitive and they do not yet have a clear idea of what is dangerous for them, therefore, they need extra protection. Always apply sunscreen with a high protection factor, preferably at least 20 minutes before getting outside, reapply every hour Protect electrical outlets and plugs against children’s fingers Keep matches, lighters, chemicals, flammable liquids and candles out of kids reach   Poisoning Over 2 million poisoning incidents were reported to poison control centers in the USA in 2014. Young children have a tendency to put everything in their mouth which is part of their natural development. In Victoria, Texas at least eight children a day receive medical attention after swallowing poison – the most common causes are medicines and household products. Keep all medicines and household products out of reach of the child immediately after purchase and use Keeps medicines and household products in their original containers and do not transfer them in other containers such as unmarked plastic bottles Teach your kids to be aware of the dangers of medicine and households product and not to put these items into their mouths.   Falling Falls are the most common cause of injuries for all ages reported in hospitals. When a child starts to learn how to walk they naturally increase the risk of falling dramatically. Usually, this results in nothing more serious than a bruise or scratch, however, a hard fall can lead to fractures, cuts, or head injuries. Teach your child to not run on slippery floors (lead by example) Use anti-slip stickers to prevent falls and to teach children how to walk in a safe way, e.g. along the banisters Do not use baby walkers since they give the toddler unexpected mobility Edupod Corner Guard range to prevent children from hurting themselves bumping into edges: Corner Guard Standard Corner Guard Deluxe Corner Guard Deluxe Pencil Corner Guard Table  Made from safe, bite resistant, soft plastic to shield off corner Finger entrapment About 30,000 people each year rush to the emergency room in the US due to fingers being pinched in between the door and the door frame, with children being the more at risk. In the age group of the under four-year-olds, 3 out of 4 amputations resulted from fingers that were trapped in a door. Teach children to not keep fingers on the door frame Make sure to close the doors to prevent it from slamming shut unexpectedly Install door finger protection Products similar to it: Finger Alert 110° Finger Alert 170-180° Finger Alert Extreme

At home and outdoors we pay close attention to the safety of the environment before we can let our children play with peace of mind. Since nobody wants his or her child to be hurt, child safety should not be ignored. The layout of the environment plays an essential role in the prevention of accidents. By observing all the dangers and applying for child-proof protection,  Finger guard for Doors At first glance, doors seem quite innocent and safe, but it is still too often the case that a child is hurt by a door. Imagine that heavy door slams shut and a child gets his hand or finger smashed between the door. This easily results in bruised, broken, or even crushed fingers or hands. An unforgettable trauma requiring immediate treatment and most likely a hospital visit. most accidents can be prevented. Door hinge guard To protect children as well as possible from suffering caused by doors, you can take various measures. The finger protection can be placed on two sides of the door. The hinge side is the side that you first think of if you want to place finger protection. The door hinge guard on this side of the door is a long door strip, which completely covers the hinge opening. The finger guard for doors is available in different sizes and easy to install. Which finger protection is most suitable depends, among other things, on the type of door and its opening degree Edupod offers three-finger guards for the hinge side: Finger Alert 110° Finger Alert 170-180° Professional Finger alert Extreme   Finger protection for the door handle side The other side of the door where you can install finger protection is the door handle side.
