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.
