Putting plans and strategies into action

Undertake risk management

Workplace and individual risk assessments must be undertaken for proposed activities in different environments to reduce the risk of an individual’s exposure to known triggers/allergens. This includes working cooperatively with others to conduct a risk assessment and rating the potential risks.

Risk assessment involves: •

Proposed activities may include:

The identification of potential sources of trigger and allergens The rating of risks and the effect of environments on level of risk e.g. a planned excursion such as remote camp location exponentially increases the risk Evaluating staff skills in the risk management of anaphylaxis

A range of workplace activities

Immunisation sessions

In-school/children’s services environments and out-of-school children’s services environments, including:  Art, craft  Cooking  Science  Incursions  Canteens  Parties/Special event days  Excursions  Camps etc.

ALLERGIES AND ANAPHYLAXIS

IMPORTANT NOTE: The effectiveness of risk minimisation strategies are to be reviewed annually and after incidents occur . Feedback of the review is to be provided to relevant staff. Risk management must include regular checks being conducted on the adrenaline autoinjector stock to ensure they are not out-of- date or discoloured.
