Risk Assessments‎ > ‎

Public Transport

This is reviewed prior to each outing taking place, and any incidents occurring are recorded in my accident/incident book.  I will remember to take my mobile telephone, emergency contact numbers and a first aid kit.

  

Type of outing:     Any

 

How will we get there:  Public Transport

 

Potential risks on the journey and how I will minimise these risks:  

  • To stop a child getting hurt, I will ensure that they adhere to safety precautions by staying away from the road whilst waiting for a bus; and standing behind the yellow line on the platform when at a train station.
  • To prevent a child falling over, I will ensure that the children are sitting down or holding on to the rail whilst on the transport.
  • To avoid anyone getting lost, I will teach the children to stay close to me or hold the pushchair at all times.
  • To stop the pushchair from moving, I will apply the brakes.
Potential risks once we arrive and how I will minimise these risks:
  • To prevent a child falling over, I will ensure that the transport has stopped completely before alighting. 
  • To avoid a child getting hurt, I will assist children and advise them to hold onto rails when departing. 
  • I will ask a responsible adult to help with the pushchair if required.
