Question and answer
describe how legislation and agreed ways of working affect working practises related to moving and positioning individuals
Every time a care worker moves or supports the weight of a person, they are manually handling that person. Unsafe moving and handling techniques can result in injury to either the care worker or the person they are assisting to move. [ [ According to Health and Safety Executive (HSE) statistics, almost 50 per cent of all accidents reported each year from the health and social care sector involve manual handling and in particular from assisting people with mobility. In 2001/2002 there were a reported 40.4 per cent handling accidents from social work activities alone! To reduce the risk of
injury to care workers and people being supported, legislation is in place to protect people. The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 makes it a legal requirement for employers to ensure that the health, safety and welfare of their employees is maintained and employees have a duty to take reasonable care of the health, safety and welfare of themselves and other.ilearn.totton.ac.uk/pluginfile.php/.../1/HSC_2028_LORES.pdf ] ]
