Why are safety precautions important in physical education?
Safe Practice within Physical Education Safe practice should be an integral part of all aspects of physical education and sports, at all ages and levels of ability. Accidents do happen, as the nature of physical activities leads to a greater potential risk, and these accidents can highlight the importance of safe practice.
Adopting good procedures can mean the difference between a minor and a severe injury, and can reduce the likelihood of such incidents occurring at all. Teachers, lecturers or coaches therefore have a duty of care for those under their responsibility to ensure that all planning and implementation includes recognition of safety as a main element.
An example of this was recently highlighted in the form of complaints regarding younger children playing rugby. Writing in the British Medical Journal, neurosurgeon Michael Carter argued that the encouraged aggressive nature of rugby has led to many youngsters being injured needlessly.
As Carter notes, the sport requires full contact collision with extreme force in order to acquire and maintain possession of the ball, which exposes players to the risk of serious physical injury (2015). An activity is deemed as safe where the associated risks are judged to be acceptably low. The identification of these risks should come through good teaching and analysis and management of a situation.
Although the over-riding responsibility for health and safety is placed on the employer (local authority, governors or trustees), schools have a duty to apply the policies and guidance within the learning environment and ensure that all young people are aware of safe practice.
Why is physical safety important?
Physical safety is related to higher academic performance, fewer risky behaviors, and lower dropout rates. Students who feel safe are more likely to stay in school and achieve academically. Students who are not fearful or worried about their safety feel more connected to their school and care more about their educational experience.

What is safety in physical?
What is Physical Safety? | Your Experiences Matter
Physical safety is the absence of harm or injury that can be experienced by any person from a physical object or practices that include a physical object. Physical objects can include a person, the room itself, furniture, medical equipment, prohibited items, toys, art work, etc. Physical safety cannot be established without simultaneously providing psychological and emotional safety to the professional and the service receiver. Once psychological and emotional safety is established, professionals can create a safe physical environment by creating practices, guidelines, policies and training that promote safety for all.

What are the needs of safety and security?
Safety and security needs include such things as an individual’s need for protection from physical harm, as well as the need for emotional well-being, job and financial security, and overall health.
What are the safety variables in physical education?
Examples of personal and other variables include level of risk, medical/physical condition, skill level, experience, accessibility, intensity, and type of pursuit (e.g., competitive/recreational, individual/group). Your involvement is important!
What are the ABCs of physical education?
The ABCs of physical literacy refer to four basic capacities that support human movement: agility, balance, coordination, and speed. All four are essential to developing the fundamental movement skills that form the foundation of physical literacy. Why do we need to know about the ABCs? Because it can help us as parents, caregivers, and educators to encourage children’s play that promotes these capacities and therefore physical literacy,
