(Recorded Webinar) When to Report Head Start Health and Safety Incidents
Health and safety incidents have been and continue to be one of the leading causes for deficiency findings. The Head Start Program Performance Standards (HSPPS) previously left reporting standards vague and open-ended, but the newly released Information Memorandum (IM) ACF-IM-HS-22-07 on Reporting Child Health and Safety Incidents seeks to define to whom the incident should be reported, the reporting timeframe, and consequences for failure to follow those standards. Even with this clarity, there are still questions on how to handle health and safety concerns. For example, should you report mere allegations? What should you do if incidents involve non-Head Start participants? Are there still incidents that you need not report?
In this webinar, we share best practices to help you meet or exceed the expectations for conduct and reporting set forth by OHS in this latest IM and review procedures for staff, consultants, and volunteers who violate the standards of conduct.
Please note: This webinar is offered as a complimentary product to all Head Start Training Package holders. For more information on our Head Start Training Package, click here or Contact Us.

Certificates of Attendance: We verify attendance upon completion of a webinar (live or recorded version) and will only issue certificates in the name of the account holder enrolled in the course. If you need to document attendance for someone other than the account holder, we provide blank Certificates of Attendance for a supervisor to sign and certify that a different individual viewed the course.
Group Attendance: Due to the online nature of webinars, we cannot verify participation by more than one person. For groups, we provide an attendance record form and blank Certificates of Attendance to record attendance at a group viewing session and document each individual's participation. We recommend that a supervisor or colleague sign the certificate to certify attendance.
