This session will support staff in caring for and keeping children safe when children must be transported by or cared for by afterhours staff. Participants will review basic considerations for caring for children across developmental stages, including children who have challenging behaviors or exceptional care needs. An introduction to car seats, including recommendations and mandates for their use and overall installation process is provided to further support staff in keeping children safe. Participants will identify and discuss general worker safety considerations, both in the field and while supervising youth in our care, as well as ways to respond early to support everyone’s safety. Lastly, an overview of professional writing for case notes is provided.
Staff newly hired into afterhours or those in afterhours who have not participated in training.
