INTRODUCTIONIn current scenario, managing health and safety is little difficult if it is compare with anyother aspect of business. There are many people who depend upon some care services to remainfit. The aim of present course is that how employees will protect themselves and others fromharm (Wang and et. al., 2011). In National Health Services, there is around 1.5 millionemployees who are working. The employees are belonging from different organisations such asprivate, public or local authorities. These organisations are providing treatments to patients withthe help of using high technology. In present report, different scenario has been taken to properlyunderstand how safety legislation can be implemented in health and social care organisation.Along with this, their impact on customers, work of practitioners has been discussed. Further,effectiveness of health and safety policies has been monitored in promoting health and safetyculture.TASK 1Covered in posterTASK 22.1 Risk assessment planningIn social care homes, bariatric patients are having their own set of needs. In care home,professionals are requiring to increase the awareness about their needs. The manager has toproperly do planning regarding risk assessment which are considered in handling experience ofbariatric patients (Badri, Gbodossou and Nadeau, 2012). For this, they have to collectinformation for analysing risk assessment. The information which has been collect through riskassessment will be beneficial for service user.It is responsibility of higher authorities to clearlyfind out that what kind of risk are associated with activities or task which are performing byemployees. Along with this they have to make new plans and strategies so that risk can beminimising.This project helps in identifying and exploring manual handling for bariatric patientby mapping the pathways for emergency admission. They can identify the risk by;Reviewing public statistics health in order to provide estimate of bariatric patients.For any risk management contingency, authority have to take some specific case studiesinto their consideration which are helpful for them.1
But it has been found that, there are many trust who did not implement any bariatricpolicy (RR573 - Risk assessment and process planning for bariatric patient handling pathways,2017). These policies are essential to implement because, it can lead to process planning,management of manual handling of risk which include communication with organisation,provision of appropriate equipment and many more.Risk planning should be done on continuousbasis which reduce those factors also which are affecting organisation rules and policies. In thisit should involve all appropriate strategies and plans to deal with pitfalls which can be face byorganisation in future.Here are some following steps of risk assessment in order to eliminate thehazard factors.Firstly, identify the pitfalls or hazardous which will harm to patients.Now, identify that, to whom these hazardous will harm and how.Analyse risk and decide what precaution can be taken in order to manage the risk.Now, make a record of findings of implementing risk policies.Lastly, manager have to review risk assessment whether they have eliminated the risk ornot.To carry risk assessment on regular basis it will give advantage to organisation only todetermine those factors which are causing harm to employees. Along with this proper action willalso be taken in time period.2.2 Impact of health and safety policiesSome organisation is not paying attention to protection their workforce on priority. Thepolicies which has been framed by National Health services have to be properly implemented byorganisation (Branas and et. al., 2011). Here are some policies which has given both positive ornegative on the objective of organisation.Health and safety Regulation 1992– In this act, employers have to carry out riskassessment of workstation which were used by employees in order to reduce or identify any risk.They have to analysed these risk on regular basis to take appropriate actions. The awarenessabout risk assessment should be there so that training can also be provided. Along with this,equipment’s which has been used in organisation, have also to provide proper training toemployers. It gives both negative and positive impact on organisation (Cooper, Coulson andTaylor, 2011). The positive impact is that; the employers will come to know about how newequipment’s will be used. Whereas negative impact is; it wastes the time of organisation in2
