Workplace Risk Assessments for Health and Social Care Settings                                                                                                                                                                        

The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 places a duty on owners and managers of health and social care settings to carry out workplace risk assessments for the setting.

Often workplace risk assessments are undertaken remotely away from the care setting or are generic assessments which are not location specific. As such the staff team is not involved in the process of workplace risk assessments and the documents produced are seldom used in practice. The aim of workplace risk assessments is to identify hazards, evaluate the degree of risk and to put into place control measures to minimise the risk. If the staff team is not involved in the process then they may have little awareness of the hazards and the actions required of them to minimise the risks. This is at odds with the requirements of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.

Symmons Madge Associates have developed a process of developing workplace risk assessments for health and social care settings which involves the staff team and enables owners and managers to comply with their responsibilities under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.

The advantages of this approach are:-

The sessions are delivered at the care setting by tutors experienced in health and safety and the health and social care sector. All delegates will receive a certificate of attendance.
