Children can be dangerous

Working with children can be a risky business, according new figures from the Work Environment Authority.

Last year alone, at least 700 preschool and kindergarten teachers were so seriously injured at work that they had to go on sick leave for one week or more.

Most of the injuries were caused by falls, but one in ten teachers reported that they had been kicked or beaten by the children. In most cases, however, the injuries were caused unintentionally.
