Health and Safety
D and T is taught to students in KS2, and the most important part of the subject is health and safety. Before they are exposed to potentially harmful tools and equipment, children must learn how to go about using them safely. This quiz covers that topic, and also has a section on hygiene.
Health and safety is all about using equipment in a safe manner. When designing and making, it is important to do so safely. In Design and Technology some of the equipment - knives, saws and even needles - can be dangerous if not used correctly.
In the interests of your own health and safety, whether you are cooking, cutting or using electronics, make sure that you do it safely.
