Teaching safety - promoting effective learning

Learning about safe practice in relation to Equipment


Examples of Learning Objectives

Students are learning to take increasing responsibility for lifting, moving and placing physical education, school sport and physical activity (PESSPA) equipment safely and effectively.

Students copy practical demonstrations of safe and effective lifting and carrying technique provided by the PESSPA staff.

Students lift, move and place a variety of PESSPA equipment under the supervision of PESSPA staff.

Students discuss the short- and long-term risks associated with lifting, carrying and lowering with poor technique (eg lower-back pain, knee injuries).

Students play an active role (under appropriate supervision) in deciding how specific PESSPA equipment is moved and placed.
