Working in care homes can be a very rewarding job, but it’s not without its fair share of Health & Safety, HR and Online Training issues. It’s our job to create solutions to these issues, allowing you to focus on the care of your residents. Carers are not only responsible for themselves, but those in their care also, which is why we want to look after your Health & Safety and HR for you!

What are the top three Health and Safety issues facing the care industry?
Not reporting or incorrectly reporting incidents can be seen as a criminal offence. Those in care homes are often the most vulnerable, that is why it’s so important for carers to follow the RIDDOR procedure if an accident or outbreak occurs. Wurkplace HR Consultants can help you when filling out RIDDOR forms to ensure compliance.
It is a legal obligation for Care homes to have a sufficient number of Fire marshals/wardens on the premises at all times to ensure fire procedures are followed and everyone is safe. Our team of experts can create bespoke fire risk assessments and training to ensure your care home is safe from fire!
Employers should put in place measures to reduce this risk for both general safety of staff & visitors, but also targeted measures like installing bed rails. Our tailored risk assessments can help identify specific risks, and we have a slips, trips and falls training course for staff!
