Keeping yourself safe
When we help someone who needs first aid, we must keep ourselves safe. This could mean looking out for any dangers, or making sure we’re with an adult we know and trust to help us. Remember, we can always call for help if we need to.
Guidance regarding giving first aid in the current coronavirus situation can be found in our News section. Please always consider your own personal safety first when delivering first aid.
In these activities, you’ll learn how to look out for some of the dangers that could cause an accident. You’ll also practise calling 999, so that we can safely get help in an emergency and look at some safety scenarios.
- Learn and understand ways we can keep ourselves and others safe
- Learn and practise how to assess and spot dangers
- Practise how to plan ways to reduce danger and make things safer

Now think about what you, or a trusted adult could do to make the kitchen safer. You could note your ideas down.
