'Stay Safe on the Farm' Safety Resources for Primary Schools

The Health and Safety Authority has developed resources to give farm safety messages to Primary students in 30 minutes. These are available at www.hsa.ie/education under Teacher Supports and Resources. These include a Farm Safety Presentation - Primary: a set of seven PowerPoint slides, specifically developed for use in all Primary classes. Teachers can use them with their whiteboards or print off to photocopy. On the Farm videos showcase child safety on the farm from the child's own perspective. In addition to this, the HSA's dedicated e-learning portal www.hsalearning.ie contains a short interactive course for Primary students called Keep Safe on the Farm (two x 40 minute online lessons suitable for the whiteboard). A certificate can be downloaded for the class once complete.

 

'Under the Sink' Safety Resource for Primary Schools

The Health and Safety Authority has designed a safety resource for Primary schools entitled Under the Sink to raise awareness amongst younger children of the dangers of household chemicals. Under the Sink is a short, clear, online presentation, designed for use on classroom whiteboards and comes with useful teacher guidelines, including a lesson plan and suggestions for follow up cross-curricular activities. While the resource is most closely linked to the SPHE curriculum objectives for First and Second classes, with a little adaption, it links with curriculum objectives at other class levels and can also be used by teachers of Infant or Senior classes as an awareness-raising tool. This resource is also available as Gaeilge.
