ABOUT THIS COURSE
Our Health & Safety in Care Training Course educates users on the legislation surrounding Health & Safety so that both the carer and the people receiving the care are protected.
There are various pieces of legislation that are relevant to Health & Safety in Care such as:
- Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974,
- RIDDOR 2013
- The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999
- The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005
- and many more...
This Standard also touches upon how Health & Safety policies and procedures are agreed with the employer, who is responsible for Health & Safety at work and tasks that should be carried out after training.
Standard 13 of the Care Certificate - Health & Safety in Care - requires staff to:
- Understand employee and employer responsibilities and the responsibility they have of others for health and safety at work
- Understand risk assessments
- Move and assist people safely
- Understand how to respond to accidents and illnesses
- Understand medication & healthcare tasks
- Handle hazardous substances
- Promote fire safety
- Work securely
- Manage stress
This course works alongside our 14 other awareness courses that make up the Care Certificate Standards.
This course equips learners with the knowledge that's required to be put into practice in the workplace, whereby they can do the 'practical' part of their training, followed by having the Care Certificate supplied to them by their management as they meet the required standards. These courses provide part of training but practical training is still required to obtain the care certificate.
