Safety and accidents in early childhood education and preschool education

The task of early childhood education and care is to strengthen children's wellbeing and safety skills. The promotion of safety also includes systematic prevention and monitoring of accidents as well as the proper maintenance of premises and equipment.

Accident notification

In the event of an accident, the daycare centre employee will report the accident using an online form. The link to the form and more specific instructions for filing an accident report can be found in the City of Tampere intranet. The personnel representative with primary supervisory responsibility in the situation in which the accident occurred must fill in the report. A copy of the accident report will be printed out to the guardian.

The daycare centre must always fill in an accident report form when an accident has occurred, even if no immediate medical attention is required.
