HEALTH AND SAFETY
'ENSURING SAFE ENVIRONMENTS'
UNIT 4 - E-LEARNING

LEARNING OUTCOMES
How does this E-Learning Work?
What is a hazard? (P1)
INDEPENDENTLY, AT HOME OR IN STUDENT SERVICES, YOU WILL:

Follow this Prezi Presentation
Carry out activities identified throughout
Write notes on rough paper as you go along
Complete worksheets ONLY when instructed and you see this image
Submit all worksheets to your Course Tutor

LEARNING OUTCOMES YOU WILL MEET
Download the worksheets for this unit and save to your computer
Worksheets are on 3D Learning, under Project: 'Safety First' 'health and safety' and 'resources'.
If you cannot access this, email CBrown@nhc.ac.uk (they will be sent)
Worksheets should be 'typed' and include your name.
Follow instructions on this Prezi. Carry out activities and complete worksheets when instructed.
You also need a pen and paper ready to write notes
When complete, email completed worksheets to CBrown@nhc.ac.uk
Complete 'in detail'. This is your task work! Work must be 'your' work and show good understanding at level 2. You may need to research further to help you complete to a good standard.

Open a new tab
Go to www.google.com
Search 'define hazard'
On worksheet 1, type a definition you have found and the website you gained it. Then put in your own words
Keep this worksheet open! You will need to add to it soon

Electrical Hazards
What do we mean by a hazard?
Hazards in a hospital
Imagine you are in A&E or a hospital ward
What type of hazards may you see?
What type of hazards are there that you may 'not' see?
Add these to your worksheet and write 'why' or 'how' they could cause harm or injury
If you cannot 'think' of any, research using the internet
TIPS: these pictures may give clues
Health and Safety at Work Legislation

Type in the following link in a new tab:
http://www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/laweasyread.pdf
Read through this leaflet and think of how this may relate to working in health and social care environments. Jot notes down on rough paper....... then:
Type in the following link
http://www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/talkingleaflets/law.htm
Click 'listen online' and jot down notes whilst you listen
For this activity, you must read a leaflet and listen to a talking poster. These are focussed on 'health and safety at work' legislation. See below for instructions
Find some images that show some of these hazards and insert them into worksheet two
Remember to put the link to where you got them too
FOOD SAFETY LEGISLATION
Many health and social care services must know about food safety legislation and follow procedures to keep service users and employees safe when preparing or serving food.
Just some examples of settings that handle food include:
Hospitals - wards/cafe
Care Homes
Children Homes
Refuges
Schools
The following posters all link with food safety law. Skim read, find answers to questions on worksheet and complete 'in your words'
http://www.health.vic.gov.au/foodsafety/downloads/hand_wash_poster.pdf
http://www.health.vic.gov.au/foodsafety/downloads/poison_prevent.pdf
Click Play/Watch video and write some notes
Click Play/Spot the hazards and note them on rough paper
Hazards in a nursery
Imagine walking into a nursery or primary school
What hazards may you see?
Are there any choking hazards?
Anything children could slip on?
Anything that could burn them?
Anything that could cause a fire?
Are there any safety measures 'not' present that could cause harm?
From your thoughts, the films you've watched and research, complete the first part of worksheet 1
P1 should now be complete.... Save work and move on to P2
P2: Outline key features of health and safety legislation in health and social care
Legislation: this is 'law' that sets rules and procedures you MUST follow to remain lawful
For P2, you will be looking at law around 'health and safety'. I.e rules and procedures you or your employer must follow to minimise risk of harm, illness or injury
Complete the first part of worksheet two on Health and Safety at Work
WHEN YOU HAVE WRITTEN NOTES:
WHEN YOU HAVE YOUR WRITTEN NOTES:
Complete the next part of worksheet three, on food safety. If necessary do more research
http://www.food.gov.uk/business-industry/guidancenotes/hygguid/fsactguide
MANUAL HANDLING
Employees that are required to lift objects of people must be trained on 'how to lift'. This legislation focusses on training people how to do this effectively to minimise risk to employees and service users
Watch video and jot down notes
Now complete next part of worksheet
Using the internet, find out what R.I.D.D.O.R stands for and write on worksheet
Skim Read this website and find the answers to questions on worksheet
http://www.healthcare-connections.com/for-business/hse-guidelines/riddor
COSHH
For this legislation, you must use your own research skills to try and find out some key points. Look at the questions on your worksheet and using the internet and own problem solving skills, try and find the answers yourself. Remember, you must write 'your' understanding and not plagiarise
Complete last two questions on worksheet
Why is Health and Safety legislation important? (give your opinion)
Give an example of potential consequences if not followed!
Save your work and move on to P3
CONCLUSION OF P2
P3: Explain risk assessment processes in the context of health and social care environments
For this learning outcome, you must show understanding of 'risk assessments' and 'explain' (not describe) each process in detail
RISK ASSESSMENT
Every organisation including health and social care settings must carry out regular risk assessments by law. In fact, as an employee you are ALWAYS assessing risks to minimise harm to yourself, your colleagues and service users. You are responsible to report and minimise risks and hazards
FIVE STEPS TO A DETAILED RISK ASSESSMENT
Go to the link below. This leaflet will give you all the details you need to know about completing a five stage risk assessment. Skim read, jot notes on each stage and then complete worksheet four. You may need to do more research
http://www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/indg163.pdf
With the information gained, you must choose one of three scenarios as shown on your worksheet. Then give a detailed account of what you would do and 'why' when carrying out a risk assessment. Remember to 'explain' reasons for each process to meet the P3.
WELL DONE! You're nearly there!
All 'Ps' should now be complete.
To gain the m1 (merit grade) you also need to carry out a risk assessment. However, you will do this within college or your work placement so don't worry about this for now
D1: Discuss ways to minimise risks
For your final piece of work (which is worth a distinction), create a poster electronically or by hand, giving your ideas on how to minimise risks in a health or social care setting of your choice. Then type a conclusion discussing how this would help health and social care workers minimise risks
For example
How to minimise risks in a nursery
How to prevent fires
How to ensure you minimise risks when preparing food
How to avoid injury when using 'sharps' (needles)
How to respond when faced with angry patients or patients under the influence of drugs or alcohol and avoid violence
M1 will be met separately to this e-learning Unit and carried out within college or work placement
RIDDOR is an acronym (shortened abbreviation of a phrase)
RISK:
A situation involving exposure to danger; a hazard that could potentially cause harm or injury
ASSESSMENT:
The evaluation or estimation of something (i.e the evaluation of the 'risk') (How dangerous is it? Who could be hurt? What should be done?)
Research posters to get ideas
Think of ones you've seen (i.e food safety, hygiene/washing hands, classroom, nursery, etc)
Your poster will be displayed in the classroom and should clearly identify ways to keep a health or social care setting safe.
Try to be original!
Your typed conclusion will give your reasons behind the poster and will remain in your folder as task work.
Now create your poster and conclusion
Save all work and send to CBrown@nhc.ac.uk
You will regularly see a variety of prompts. When you see these, they will identify an instruction during this training
Write notes
Look at something
Listen to something
Carry out research
Read something
Save something
