Zamani, A. Rahman, Ed.; Evinger, Sara, Ed.
California Childcare Health Program
This curriculum was first published in June 1998 to be used by qualified health and safety trainers to fulfill part of the learning needs and licensing requirements of child care providers (Health and Safety Code, Section 1596.866) in California. This second and updated edition of Module 2, Prevention of Injuries, covers the content of the Emergency Medical Services Authority Child Care 7 Hours Preventive Health and Safety Training Course and will provide information and guidance on how to reduce and control injuries in the child care setting. It also reflects current changes in the National Health and Safety Performance Standards for Out-of-Home Child Care. By using this module, trainers will be able to: (1) Increase awareness about the types of injuries that are common in the child care setting, who gets injured, how, when and why; (2) Help providers understand the connection between the developmental age of a child and the kind of injuries he or she may have; (3) Discuss and develop safety policies and use them as tools for safety, risk prevention and protection; (4) Encourage providers to accept responsibility for preventing injuries in their child care setting; (5) Help providers to understand regular safety checks and take actions to eliminate or reduce environmental hazards; (6) Provide materials that can be used as resources for child care providers as well as parents; and (7) Connect child care providers with local health and safety resources.
