The resource allows students who visit Isle of Wight Steam Railway to engage with the health and safety aspects of this environment, by identifying risks, asking and answering questions, and thinking about their own responses to potential danger.
This resource is for upper key stage 2 students who are covering health and safety and identifying risks in certain situations as part of Personal, Social & Health Education on the 2014 National Curriculum.
When on site at the railway, students can then apply what they already know about health and safety, answering questions on the sheet as they move around the venue. This will focus students’ attention on the key areas for learning. Students will learn about how dangers are prevalent everywhere and that health and safety can protect us if we think ‘safety first’. They will be learning and understanding core skills in a real-life situation.
