This course is aimed at anyone working in the care sector and should act as an introduction to health and safety in their place of work.
Care homes are owned and managed by a wide range of organisations, including local authorities, the NHS, and organisations from the private and voluntary sectors.
They differ from other workplaces because they are not only places of work; they are also homes for their residents.
They should be places where the dignity and freedom of the residents are respected, and where everyone’s health and safety are managed effectively.
To achieve this, everyone involved must understand their responsibilities.
This course discusses the legislation that applies to care homes, and the responsibilities of management and employees and looks at developing systems of work.
It also covers what to do in some common hazards you might encounter as well as some Emergencies.
It concludes by discussing some aspects of the work environment and staff welfare.
Introduction, Responsibilities, Systems, Accidents & Illnesses Part 1, Accidents & Illnesses Part 2, Moving & Handling, General Hazards: Fires, Gas & Electricity, Aggression, Violence, Security & Stress, Work Environment and Welfare.
