Question and answer
Describe unsafe practices that may affect the well-being of individuals.in health and social care
You could say that anything that puts another person at risk is an unsafe practice and therefore affects their well-being. [ Our behaviour can affect others, on a daily basis, not only in our work environment, but also in our homes and our social lives. For example, if we drive our cars too fast we could cause an accident, thus putting others at risk, if we let cases of abuse go unreported, not
only could we be subjecting the victim too even more harm but we could be encouraging the abuser to victimise others, it is even believed that if we smoke in public or in the company of others we are affecting their health and thus their well-being. ]

User: Explain the actions to take if unsafe practices have been identifiedin health and social setting

Weegy: Reporting unsafe practices and work conditions is tricky. Something that's unsafe for you may be normal for others. [ [ It is therefore important to report unsafe practices and conditions in such a manner that others too get a clear picture. [ [ ? Use clear to-the-point language when making a report. ? State facts clearly without blaming anyone. ? Use facts such as time of the day, actual process to be followed, exact issue(s) faced, number of machines used and any other information which adds weight to the claim. ? Include as much information as is possible. ? Keep emotions separate. SPSA lays the onus of practicing safety on individual workers. Each employee present on the worksite should himself/herself take all due precautions when working on a task. Stop working if certain steps or a task is considered unsafe and immediately report it to the supervisors. Assess the worst effects of the unsafe practice. Evaluate if you have the expertise to resolve the risk. Act promptly to discuss the situation with concerned personnel. Don't wait for an accident to happen. Take measures to minimize their occurrence. SPSA does not require any forms to be filled. Given the nature of environmental construction industry, care should be taken to prevent duplication of efforts. For instance, a process identified in NLI should not be reported in LPO and vice versa. ] ]
