This standard is about managing the playwork setting and the processes involved in maintaining a healthy, safe and secure physical environment.

The main outcomes of this standard are:

1. manage the playwork setting
2. manage and maintain the physical resources within the playwork setting
3. supervise the maintenance of health, safety and security in the playwork setting

This standard is for a playworker working directly with children and young people in a setting whose main purpose is to provide children and young people with opportunities for freely chosen, self-directed play. This standard is for staff that have some responsibility for the setting and others, making a significant contribution to supporting play.

This standard is underpinned by the Playwork Principles and playworkers must be familiar with these and, where possible, demonstrate them through their practice and reflection.
