“I will plan on using the classroom safety checklist when setting up the classroom…I would like to suggest that the school enlist all the staff to help with the playground checklist as we have two large playgrounds and lots of equipment and that we keep revisiting the checklist, as well as having a system set up for reporting hazards we see.”
