Risk is a normal part of life, and it is our responsibility at this stage in their development to support risk-taking in a controlled environment. This chapter looks at what we need to do in order to keep children safe whilst woodworking. It starts by looking at risk and the importance of young children learning to manage risk themselves within a controlled environment. The chapter explains the importance of completing a risk assessment and provides a checklist of all the health and safety measures that need to be in place in order to ensure woodwork is a safe and low-risk activity. The chapter highlights the importance of having teacher training to ensure all staff supervising the woodwork area are confident with the tools, understand how to support and encourage children and know how to ensure safety measures are always in place.
