Training for SOTKVO

Since 2013, this will be the 5th time that Helena is invited by SOTKVO for a particular type of training including a strong consultancy aspect as participant members can previously send real cases for analysis and study; in one of the last 2-day sessions, more than 120 situations were presented and grouped by topics for discussion.
The program this year includes:
- changes in the new Playground European standards
- outdoor fitness equipment
- skate parks
- practical exercises on risk-benefit assessment and decisions on risk level classification and acceptable risk (using the situations presented by participants)
A poster presenting the SAFERPLAY project was exhibited at the Conference “Safer Children”, celebrating the 25th anniversary of APSI, the Portuguese Child Safety Promotion Association, on the 12th October, in Lisbon.
