Employers should be aware of the hazards relating to OH&S in early childhood services (including kindergartens, long day care and child care services)

It is important that services implement a systematic approach to managing hazards in early childhood services. This section provides the basis for managing hazards in services. There is also a series of hazard tipsheets that provide detailed information about prevention of hazards in early childhood services.

To help apply the hazard management steps with some of the commonly associated hazards at services, there are some templates and forms to help you in the OHS templates and guidelines section.
