Working in residential or domiciliary settings places a responsibility on each manager and employee to protect themselves and others from risk. This workbook will provide staff and relatives with the ability to make sensible choices concerning protecting older people, as well as practical advice on how to protect yourself. Health and Safety will guide you through the responsibilities and risk assessments involved in working in social care, such as first aid, safety in the kitchen, infection control, safe handling of older people, issues surrounding medication, how to react in an emergency and how to respond to challenging behaviour. The workbook meets the requirements of care standards and promotes best practice by enabling staff to gain the knowledge and skills to prevent and protect the people they support from abuse. Designed to meet the requirements of Health and Social Care (Adults) NVQ Level 3, Unit 32, this workbook is also a valuable source of guidance for any social care worker wanting to improve their knowledge and skills in relation to health and safety in the workplace and in the clients home.
