identify specific tasks in the work setting that should not be carried out without special training
identify specific tasks in the work setting that should not be carried out without special training - 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 • 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. Read more here: ]

describe different types of accident and sudden illness that may occur in own work setting
Weegy: Accidents at work can happen to anybody at anytime. In certain environments, specific types of accidents can be more common than others. [ For example, you'd be more likely to suffer burns or breathing problems from working with Dangerous Substances than if you worked in an office. Accidents will always occur from time to time but it is the duty of your employer to minimise the Risks at Work as much as possible as a large number of accidents can often be put down to employer negligence.It has been reported that almost a third of the total of workplace accidents in the UK are the result of slips and trips. In a vast number of these instances, the accident has occurred in wet or contaminated conditions and most trips are put down to bad housekeeping where substances left on the floor, obstructions, adverse weather and poor flooring have been the cause. A slip or trip can seem minor - in some cases, it can even be a source of humour to some but the startling reality is that they can result in head injuries, broken bones and major fractures to limbs and even death where the fall is from height. ] User: explain procedures to be followed if an accident or sudden ilness should occur (More)
