Good health and safety practice can be promoted in an adult social care setting in many ways.
Encouraging everybody (including service users, staff and visitors) to report any potential and actual hazards that they encounter promptly means that the environment can be made safer quicker.
Explaining to everybody that is their responsibility to ensure that they take reasonable care to ensure the health and safety of themselves and others can help them to understand that health and safety should be taken seriously by all. Also, it should be explained that it is their responsibility to follow health and safety policies and procedures.
All staff should be advised that it is their legal responsibility to attend health and safety training and management should ensure that they are given opportunities to do this.
