It is the legal obligation of the nursing and care homes to comply with the health and safety regulations and other rules imposed by the Care Quality Commission.
Employers who employ five or more people are legally required to have a written health and safety policy and a record of health and safety arrangements.
On the other hand, employers who employ less than five people are not legally required to have a written health and safety policy, however, it is good practice to have one in place. All employers must carry out a risk assessment.
There are a number of very specific hazards that you will need to consider for your nursing and care homes. Health and safety legislation applies to all businesses, however small. Every employer has a legal responsibility to protect the health and safety of their staff and others - such as customers and members of the public - who may be affected by their work activities. This Nursing/Care Home Health and Safety Policy & Procedures is a unique document that defines who does what, when and how they do it.
This Nursing/Care Home Health and Safety Policy & Procedures document template is in Microsoft Word format, written in plain English easy to use and edit.
