Health and Safety in NZ ECE: Compliance and best practice
Have confidence in your team's ability to know and apply the NZ licensing criteria for health and safety. 
  • Can you sleep at night feeling confident that children in your ECE service are safe in the care of your team?
  • How do you provide training for giving medication to meet this requirement of the licensing criteria?
  • Does your team understand and uphold the health and safety licensing criteria consistently throughout your whole environment?

This short course covers NZ's Health and Safety Licensing Criteria for ECE services. It is designed to be a place where teams can build and test their knowledge of critical requirements, ensuring they are compliant, knowledgeable, and capable of keeping your service safe.

Enrol your team for their health and safety training, and each person receives a certificate confirming their ability to be compliant. 

And remember to register new staff as part of your induction so that you can be assured that all staff are capable of compliance and keeping your ECE service healthy and safe consistently.

This course covers;
  • Safe and healthy environments - what are our obligations?
  • How to keep yourself safe.
  • Managing illness and exclusion - responding to high temperatures, what to do when children become unwell.
  • How to administer medication (including Epipens, Ventolin for asthma, oral medication).
  • Managing accidents and incidents.
  • Outdoor safety and compliance.
  • Dealing with emergencies.
  • Food and drink compliance.
  • Safe sleep

Each section of this course is assessed, and you will need to pass every section to gain a certificate of completion.

Here's what others say about this course  

Everything was easy to follow. There were lots of helpful ideas and information to download. The questions relating to the ECE service were good and gave some areas to think about and share with the rest of the management team.

This was an absolutely fabulous and well-put-together course . I tried it as a center manger and owner and will happily use for my staff. All the supporting documents and links are very useful.

"I have often thought H&S where do I start, how best do I share this vital information across my team in an authentic way that they will make sense of it and take the information away into practice?
How do I induct new teachers with so much information needing to be shared, without it being a policy and procedure over load?
You have created an answer!! What an amazing course!!
After doing the training myself I can immediately see the benefits of enrolling my team in the course.

"It is just such a valuable time saver for me as a manager. I no longer need to do health and safety training or how to give medication to my staff. It's all done for me! And I get a record of everyone who has passed the course, which ticks our compliance box."
