How can you ensure your service will continue preventing an outbreak?
Health and safety strategies
The Government has released guidelines for every industry on health and safety strategies for employees returning to work on the Safe Work Australia website. The information provided is primarily concerned with staff safety, but for the childcare sector does include some practical tips on pick up/drop off and worker-child interactions.
Self - Assessment tool for centres
The team behind Penelope QIP are offering a completely free self-assessment tool for Centres. The tool incorporates guidelines from World Health Organisation, Department of Health and the National Health and Medical Research Council on ECEC services and infection control.
