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 a wide range of different duties and play such an important and essential role in improving the quality of life for thousands of people. They look after adults and children in a wide variety of settings which could range from hospitals, day centres, care homes and hospices through to caring for clients in their own homes.

The relevance and importance of the topics covered in this course couldn't be better highlighted than by the annual statistics concerning accidents and illness at work and this comprehensive course has therefore been produced to cover all aspects of health and safety relevant to healthcare environments. It delivers the following modules which meet the relevant frameworks and learning outcomes for the topic at this level:

  • Health & Safety in the Workplace
  • Health & Safety Law
  • COSHH
  • RIDDOR
  • Risks and Risk Assessment
  • Emergency procedures and Fire Safety
  • Manual Handling
  • Infection Control
  • Medication handling overview
  • Food Safety Basics
  • Health and Fitness
  • Patient Information and Caldicott Protocol
  • Dealing with Conflict, Violence and Aggression
  • Handling Complaints
  • Safety in Community Settings and Lone Working

As this course is intentionally ‘robust’, it is important to allocate the necessary time to complete it. However it is not necessary to complete the course ‘in one go’ and you are prompted at various stages to take a break. For example, you may prefer to cover each topic and then take a break and if you do this, the next time you sign in, you will be taken to the last page in the course that you visited.

    PVG- Adult Support and protection module. As a registered nurse and partner in a care at home/ nurse agency business, I have to say I'm highly impressed. I actually learned new things, whilst refreshing my current knowledge.The content was rich and linked seamlessly!

    Having whittled our future training company for the business down to 3, this has been my last company to have trialed (whilst also racking up some CPD points for myself). You are by far the most expensive. However, taking into account how up to date your training is, the content, ease of use (dashboard is so much clearer that others), relevant to Scotland (a must) and how responsive you were to my enquiry prior to commencing the course- this rates you as amazing at what you do.

    Looking forward to registering the business with you in the future and accessing all staffs' progress. I see that it's cheaper, the more modules accessed. A positive thing for us.

    Thank you & well done.
