As an addition to your Loaf and Bread at the start of a session, why not try this new 6 point checklist.
It includes all the essential well-being issues, as well as your learning objectives for the day.
The acronym for the checklist is U R Lovely Friendly Helpful People – URLFHP
Here is what it stands for…
U – Useful tips – the outgoing team should share useful tips from the day
R– Rest – are the outgoing staff safe to drive home? They may need to rest first or get a cab
Lovely- Learning objectives – this is when you do your LOAF and BREAD
Friendly- Food – plan your breaks with the team, it will make it more likely that they will happen
Helpful – Help – have a clear escalation plan; who to call and how
People- PPE – make sure you have your PPE to hand. Looking for it in an emergency adds to stress
