Care homes require a wide range of health and safety documents due to the sensitive nature of the jobs carried out on-site. Whilst specifics may change which documents you need, or how many, essential H&S documents for this industry include:

Residents in a care home are considered vulnerable people, with some experiencing additional needs or health issues that may affect how well they can look after themselves. All employees have a duty of care to provide, and a responsibility to ensure that risks are minimised and a safe environment is maintained. If not, those receiving care, and other members of staff could face injury or illness. As a care provider, you may face charges of neglect if health and safety aren’t prioritised. 

When working in an industry where the responsibility of another person is in your hands, you must ensure that all expectations of you as an employer are met (and exceeded). These cover many areas, but most importantly you and your staff must:

  • Provide a safe living and working environment for those in your care
  • Offer adequate and appropriate training for all staff
  • Ensure that safe working practices are followed and reviewed regularly
  • Provide adequate first aid equipment
  • Prioritise your service user’s health and safeguarding

All of your staff, no matter how junior or senior, should be on board with implementing and improving safety best practices in a care home. Here are a couple of the ways you can promote safety:  Make responsibilities for each staff member clear and assess them regularly Implement clear procedures and make these accessible on paper for everyone to see  Periodically conduct care home risk assessments and make changes where needed Make the most of visual posters and interior signage (for more information, read our recent blog post - ’What is the Importance of Food Hygiene Posters?’)

A number of legislations should be considered in a caring environment, all relating to different aspects of health and safety. We’d consider the following legislations to be most important to this industry:

  • The Health and Social Care (Safety and Quality) Act 2015
  • Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992
  • Health and Safety at Work Act 1974
  • Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981
  • Food Safety Act 1990
