Everybody in the workplace needs to know how to risk assess his or her environment for the welfare of everybody present. As a health or social care worker with individuals in your care, you need to understand your responsibilities of Health & Safety in your workplace. This course equips you with all you need to know. 

UK law has specific requirements that companies, and their employees must meet. As a health or social care worker, you need to know what is expected of you whether you work in the private or the public sector. 

 

You will learn how to spot Health & Safety risks to yourself and to anybody in your care at your place of work. Knowing how to correctly risk assess an environment is key to preventing accidents. You will also learn to respond to the effect of your colleagues’ or clients’ action or inaction during the risk assessment phase. You will be shown how to prevent infection and the correct way to handle and store hazardous substances (COSHH).
