More safety in kindergartens – DEKRA Media finances playground checks and safety training of their employees

DEKRA Media finances playground checks for four kindergartens in Mönchengladbach, as well as online schooling for their employees. The symbolic delivery of the licenses took place on Wednesday, October 23, in the catholic kindergarten St. Matthias in Mönchengladbach-Günhoven.

Even on modern and well maintained playgrounds, dangers can be lurking. Such as unstable climbing frames, splintery wooden railings or poisonous plants right behind the fence. The parents and child care workers in the catholic kindergartens St. Matthias, Papst Johannes, St. Helena and St. Mariä Heimsuchung can soon be a bit more certain of the fact that their grounds do not pose a risk for the children. A DEKRA playground validator who is qualified according to DIN standards  will be checking on the play equipment as well as on the security of foundations, paths and plants. 

The costs for the check will be borne by DEKRA Media. “Finally we can be certain that our play equipment is up to scratch and does not endanger the children”, says Dorothea Brosch from St. Matthias Günhoven, happy about the sponsoring.

In addition to the playground check, DEKRA Media also supports the four kindergartens in the safety training of their employees. All of them receive access to digital learning units on DEKRA Safety Web, the instruction portal developed by DEKRA Media. They can complete the learning units about first aid and fire prevention online.

“The time is coming where there are bonfires, and candles and Advent wreaths are lit. The learning units transfer relevant knowledge about how to prevent and extinguish fires”, says Martina Reinicke-Reichelt, head of department at DEKRA Media. The digital instructions are so-called web based trainings, which the participants can access online. For this purpose, the kindergartens get laptops on loan. The web based trainings are each about 60 minutes long and convey their content via a media mixture containing texts, animated films and interactive graphics.

DEKRA Safety Web offers instructions about topics from logistics, industry and services. Another advantage – in addition to the compact design and flexible knowledge transfer is the gapless documentation which enables the entrepreneur to prove that he has fulfilled his instruction duties.
