explain how and why policies and procedures or agreed ways of working must reflect incorporate legislatie requirements
Weegy: Because policies and procedures are set out through legislation! The polices and procedures put in place make sure that legislation is being followed so that all people in the setting, practitioners and thoughts being cared for are safe, [ all needs are being met, inclusive practise and diversity is being followed out and that the setting is staying within the law. They must reflect on legislation so that the polices and procedures are correct and are the correct way of doing things. For example if a health and safety procedure was put in place and was not inline with legislation then this could cause the setting to get in trouble with the law and could cause harm to the person who was in need of health and safety requirements could become harmed. ] (More)
