Risk assessments, Risk Benefit and Play (Online Live Webinar)

So what does risky play actually mean? Play England (2008) states that play means “providing opportunities for all children to encounter or create uncertainty, unpredictability, and potential hazards as part of their play. We do not mean putting children in danger of serious harm” . Children recognise that not everything around them can be made safe and that a balance is needed between risks and fun.

This webinar delivered by Birmingham Play Care Network will enable Playworkers to recognise risk benefit and how to use risk assessments to develop children’s play opportunities. The session will allow Playworkers to recognise the link between play observations, risk assessments and the play environment and explore the resources available to support risk benefit assessments.

Natasha's Law & Food Allergens

, Bitesize Session - Natasha's Law and Food Allergens - YouTube,  involves an open discussion with Julian Edwards from Allergen Accreditation for all involved in food organising, preparation and delivery of the HAF programme.  Chaired by Bryn Hamer, from the Soil Association, who asks Julian some key questions on food allergens and what we need to consider when preparing and organising food services. The conversation is light, practical and informative and covers areas of the rules and regulations, where we get allergen information from, staff training, how allergen information is collected and provided. It also answers some questions on the new Natasha’s Law or Pre-Packed for Direct Sale regulations that came into force on 1st October 2021. It wraps up with some practical kitchen tips and in the event a customer query cannot be dealt with… honesty and courtesy (and asking a colleague for help) is the safest route to take, always!

Some links and resources are mentioned.  These include: for technical guidance, templates and the FSA’s free online allergen training (Please note this was updated in June 2020, so if you’ve done it before, do it again- it also includes sections on Natasha’s Law.) And for allergen spec’ sheets and knowledge on anaphylaxis, look no further than:
