Risk assessment

At Child’s Play Music we take safety seriously.

Contact us today to book your incursion!

Child’s Play Music has been safely delivering music incursions since 1998.  No children’s activity is completely risk-free, so Child’s Play Music uses risk/benefit analysis to assess, reduce and manage risk.

All Child’s Play Music’s instruments have been carefully designed and constructed to reduce and manage risk:


  • All corners have been rounded, sharp edges removed and the instruments are checked daily for damage or potential hazards.
  • The drumsticks are bluntly rounded on both ends and are reinforced with cloth tape; this means that if a drumstick breaks it breaks cleanly, without sharp protrusions.
  • Mouthpieces of wind instruments are washed between each child.

Child’s’ Play Music’s programs are also carefully designed to reduce and manage risk:

  • During the introduction we remind children to act carefully, & to walk (not run) with drumsticks. We monitor this throughout the program.
  • We have tested volume levels of the incursion with a decibel meter to ensure that they remain within safe ranges and to protect your children’s hearing.
  • Throughout the program children are supervised at all times.  Before each incursion we brief your staff on managing risk and monitoring children’s risk-taking behaviour so we are all working together to ensure the safest possible environment.

We are fully insured for public liability and professional indemnity, and our facilitator has a full Working With Children Check clearance and card.
