Child Care Services & Use of glass (including workplace childcare centres)
A five-year-old child had the unfortunate incident of suffering severe wrist lacerations earlier this year which required hospitalisation after leaning on a glass window at a child care facility. WorkSafe visited a variety of workplaces that provide child care services and it became apparent that a number of windows and doors with glass panes or inserts did not meet the Australian Standard requirements, AS 1288-2006 Glass in buildings – Selection and installation.
