Health & Safety – Work-related Learning Teaching Resources
Many of the principles of health and safety in the workplace are the same across a number of sectors, so in this series of lessons, we use the example of a music event to help students engage with and relate to the topic.
Lesson 1 – Working in Production
Using a series of images, students must identify the possible risks associated with the scene. The purpose of different kinds of safety equipment is discussed and the results displayed.
Lesson 2 – Risk Assessment
Working in pairs, students carry out a quick risk assessment in the classroom using guidelines from the HSE website. The findings are then fed back to the class to compile a list of potential hazards.
Lesson 3 – Planning an Event
Using knowledge learnt so far, students begin to plan a music event from a health and safety perspective. Have they considered all the factors?.
Lesson 4 –Writing a Method Statement
To complete the exercise, pupils will now complete a risk assessment and method statement for their event. Levels of understanding can be assessed using the fun interactive exercise at the end of this module.
