Unintentional injuries are the leading threat to the lives and health of children in the United States. Childcare providers need to realize that injuries to children are understandable, predictable, and preventable. Injury prevention is an essential part of quality childcare programs, and a major responsibility of childcare providers, which is why most states require an injury prevention training by all childcare staff.
By understanding how injuries happen, planning, and taking simple precautions, most injuries in the childcare program can be avoided. The goal of injury prevention is to reduce the number and seriousness of injuries. It is important to identify potential hazards in the childcare environment and to promote preventive actions such as environmental modifications, enforcement of safety policies and behavioral changes.
We here at H&H Child Care Training understand the importance of injury prevention trainings and have created updated courses to satisfy most state requirements. Some of the injury prevention courses that we offer are “1, 2, 3, Eyes on Me: Classroom Safety”, Brain Injury Awareness in Young Children”, “Injury Prevention: Their Safety is in Your Hands” just to name a few.
