The Safety Centre is committed to providing current information and knowledge to assist parents and caregivers in providing safe environments for children through Safety promotion/Injury prevention practices. Throughout the year the Safety Centre conducts workshops including Parent, Childcare, and Health Practitioner Workshops. Workshops may also be tailored for groups such as family day care providers and carers, and community outreach workers.
Every year, many young children suffer serious injury in and around the home. The good news is that many injuries can be prevented. One of the most effective ways of protecting children from injury is supervision and creating a safe home environment.
Join us for our parent discussion groups to discuss simple ways in which you can reduce the risk of childhood injuries. These can include the removal of potentially dangerous items, adding safety products to your home, moving objects such as furniture, changing the layout of a room, and changing the way you go about your daily routine.
Approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes including question and answer time.
$5.00 per person donation(Concession card holders are free)
