We have this for our outdoor area. We have a 'Talking and Thinking' circle (round logs which we come together to discuss the jobs that need doing for that day). It is a largish area with lots of potential risks- we have a laminated book which we have made ourselves with photos of key hazards- sloping bank, holes, low and high branches, the pond area, fungus and berries etc. Each session we gather together in the talking and thinking circle and before commencing play we go through the book and talk about the potential hazards and what to do if we come across them. As this is part of the routine the children are excellent at spotting 'danger' and let us know. This week one of the children took charge of this task and led the children through the book talking about all the hazards that could come our way.

 

I wonder if you could do something similar with photos of potential hazards in your setting, even include the children in deciding what might pose a risk?
