Family Day Care National Safety Guidelines 6th Edition (August 2014)
The latest edition of the Family Day Care National Safety Guidelines has been released!
Many accidental deaths and injuries around the home are avoidable and can either be prevented or the level of injury minimised. By recognising potential risks to children, we can take steps to reduce both the frequency and severity of accidental injury. In response to this problem, Kidsafe developed national Safety Guidelines in 1986, which aim to prevent unintentional child injury in home-based child care and family day care. The Guidelines are regularly revised with key people from all states and territories, including representatives from State and Territory health departments, accident prevention agencies, researchers, privately-owned child care centres and local government-managed family day care schemes. They refer to the relevant Australian Standards to assist agencies and service providers locate recommended safety measures and specifications. This will ensure that products and materials in the family day care home are safe and reliable, limit the hazards to children and minimise the chance of unintentional injury.
