Q: An explanation of how health and safety policies and procedures protect people who work in social care settings
A: Health and safety training and information Employers have legal duties to give health and safety information and training to all employees. [ Training should include all the risks that employees are exposed to and the precautions needed. It is usual for all new staff to be given induction training on joining the home care service. The training should make clear the areas of activity home
carers should and should not undertake and should also give guidance on appropriate footwear and clothing. Where the risk assessment identifies that such clothing is required to protect staff from hazards they should be provided and maintained at no cost to members. Induction programmes must also include health and safety training and should cover: ? Manual handling ? Infection control ? Fire procedures ? First aid 4 ? Basic hygiene ? Food preparation, storage and hygiene ? Dealing with emergency situations ? The use of protective clothing and/or equipment. UNISON safety representatives have the right to be consulted on the type and level of health and safety training and information developed or offered to members. In addition to the induction, training should be given to employees when: ? There is a transfer of job, a change in clients or changes in responsibility ? New equipment is used, or existing use changed ? There are changes in work methods. Source: ]
