The Facts

Did you know that over the past two years care home providers have reported over 11,000 work related accidents in the UK? Whilst the majority of these involve employees, 34 of these resulted in deaths to people who use care services and medical premises.

The past few decades have seen a rise in concern over the quality of care provided in care homes. As with many similar industries care providers have tried to embrace the safety culture despite staff shortages, lack of funding and safety awareness. Now a sector strictly inspected and monitored by governing bodies care providers have no choice but to comply with a minimum standard of safety.

Medical premises such as private clinics, general medicine and dental practices must ensure the safety of non medical employees such as cleaning staff and administrators as well as medical practitioners and the hazards associated with their tasks, and visitors and patients. The hazards for each are very different and must be controlled to variant degrees.
