Risk Assessment with Falls Prevention

What is the correct process to carry out a risk assessment? Health and social care workers in both the private and public sectors need to understand and carry out risk assessments for individuals who may be at risk of falling. There is a correct method to risk assessment; this course covers each step, with a focus on the prevention of falls.

If your role involves delivering care within your company and carrying out regular risk assessments at work, this course is for you. It ensures that you will be equipped to provide quality care consistently that’s in-line with your company’s core values and ethics. It’s easy to miss hidden hazards in the workplace that might contribute to falls and injuries for those you care for. Injuries from falls can very often be prevented by having a trained member of staff carry out a proper risk assessment.

 

In this session, you’ll cover:

The step by step process of taking a risk assessment correctly
Why it is important to be able to conduct a risk assessment that is specifically focused on the prevention of falls
The differences between hazard, risk and control measures
What your key responsibilities as a risk assessor are as stipulated under the Health and Safety at Work Act
The five steps of risk assessment
Client perception - why it matters and the effect it can have on the risk of falls in the workplace
Falls Prevention Assessment
The importance of record keeping and the correct way to do it


This half-day course comprises an engaging mix of activities with fellow learners (maximum fifteen delegates). You’ll be asked to complete a simple multiple-choice assessment after you take the course. You will receive a certificate once you have passed the assessment.
