Grade 3 Hazard Hero Safety Presentation

Did you know?

Between 1994 and 2003, approximately 390 Canadian children age 14 years and under died from unintentional injuries annually, while another 25,500 were hospitalized.
– Canadian Paediatric Society

In 2004, injuries to Canadians cost $19.8 billion in health care costs and lost productivity, of which $16.0 billion resulted from unintentional causes. Of this, almost $3 billion could be accounted for by falls and transport-related injuries to children and youth from birth to 19 years of age. – Canadian Paediatric Society

Causes of child and youth injury in Canada vary by age due to many factors, including child development and exposure to hazards. – Canadian Paediatric Society

According to The Canadian Paediatric Society, “with rising health care costs and the understanding that many injury cases fare poorly despite optimal treatment, prevention is undoubtedly the best approach to address this burden”. To help, we have created a Grade 3 Safety Presentation to help educate young students about a variety of hazards in their environment and how to prevent themselves from getting injured by these hazards.

 


The presentation is intended to be used as a lesson in the health education curriculum targeting Outcomes:

USC3.5 – Evaluate safe behaviors/practices to increase the safety of self and others at home.

This presentation is 45 min in length and includes a fun Hazard Hero game using a Family Feud format.  The teachers are provided with a variety of activities to use after the Service Hospitality safety presentation.

Your students will learn:

  1. What a hazard/risk is.

  2. The different types of hazards in the home and the surrounding environments.

  3. How to be a Hazard Hero and prevent injuries from happening to them or the people around them.
