Health and Safety for Healthcare Workers

Health and Safety for Healthcare Workers

Crucial information for healthcare professionals, helping to maintain a healthy and safe work environment

Healthcare workers carry out such a wide range of different duties and play such an important and essential role in improving the quality of life for thousands of people and can involve looking after adults and children in a wide variety of settings, This could range from hospitals, day centres, care homes, and hospices through to caring for clients in their own homes.

This course has therefore been produced to cover all aspects of health and safety, along with the relevant extra modules for anyone working in a healthcare setting which have the additional benefit of being mapped to cover all elements of the theoretical training requirements within the Government Procurement Services (Formerly Buying Solutions, and PASA frameworks). The course covers the following modules:

  • Health & Safety Overview
  • COSHH
  • RIDDOR
  • Fire Safety
  • Risk Assessment
  • Infection Control
  • Manual Handling
  • Violence and Aggression
  • Lone Working
  • Patient Information & Caldicott Protocol
  • Dealing with Complaints

The relevance and importance of this topic couldn't be better highlighted than by the fact that over 200 people a year lose their lives at work in Britain with approximately 150,000 non-fatal injuries reported each year. Furthermore, an estimated 2 million people suffer from ill health caused or made worse by work.
