Those working in residential or domiciliary settings have a responsibility to maintain a clean, safe and secure work environment.

Health and Safety provides guidance on the responsibilities and risk assessments involved, covering subjects such as first aid, safety in the kitchen, infection control, safe handling of adults, issues surrounding medication, how to react in an emergency and how to respond to challenging behaviour. The workbook meets the requirements of care standards and promotes best practice by enabling staff to gain the knowledge needed to meet health and safety standards.

Designed to meet the requirements of Health and Social Care (Adults) NVQ Level 3, Unit 32, this workbook is also a valuable source of guidance for any social care worker wanting to improve their knowledge.

'I can honestly say that if you're in health and social care, and are passionate about the job you do and how well you do it, you will get a lot from this book. And that holds true whether you're new to social care, or if you just want to brush up your prior knowledge.'

- Learning Disability

'This is an excellently interesting and informative workbook which should carry social care workers easily and encouragingly through to practical understanding and application of basic and essential H&S skills.'
