Employers must ensure that policies and procedures
are in place to protect home carers while they are at
work by:
• Carrying out suitable risk assessments that take
account of the real risks faced by home care
workers
• Providing health and safety training and information
as well as refresher training so that care workers
are confident in carrying out their duties
• Ensuring that a reporting system is set up that
encourages care workers to report and record
incidents and accidents
• Monitoring, evaluating and reviewing practices and
procedures on a regular basis.

Employers’ legal duties
Under the Health and Safety at Work Act (HASAWA)
1974 and the Management of Health and Safety at
Work Regulations (MHSW) 1999, employers have a
legal duty to assess all risks to the health and safety
of employees.


If the risk assessment shows that it is
not possible for the work to be done safely, then other
arrangements must be put in place
