Level 2 Health and Safety in Health and Social Care

What’s It About?

This Level 2 Health and Safety in Health and Social care course provides you with a good understanding and knowledge of health and safety in a care setting.  It will develop your knowledge and awareness of the hazards, risks and control measures. This also includes contamination and infection and how these can be managed.

It takes the key elements from the Level 2 Award in Health and Safety in the Workplace and the Level 2 Award in Hygiene and creates a well-respected accredited qualification relevant to the health and social care sector.

What Will You Gain?

By attending this Level 2 Health and Safety in Health and Social Care course, you will gain essential knowledge and understanding of health and safety practices and the awareness of risks and hazards in your workplace.

You will also understand the causes of infection and know how to manage and control the risks to prevent cross-infection.

On returning to work, you will be able to implement the high standards of health, safety, hygiene and cleaning you have learned and recognise the importance of these standards.

Who Should Attend?

This Level 2 Health and Safety in Health and Social Care course is perfect for people working in primary, community and secondary health care settings. For example hospitals, nursing and residential care homes, dentists and domiciliary care. 

It’s beneficial for registered managers, health care assistants, support workers, service users, medical staff and community carers.

Why’s It Important?

Everyone’s safety within a health and social care setting is paramount, especially when some people who use these services may be unable to take responsibility for their own safety. Some individuals may require the support of professionals to ensure their well being.

In care settings, people are often treated or cared for in limited space. This means there are many microorganisms present. Patients will come into contact with many staff members who can potentially spread the microorganisms and infections between patients.

Also, in many health care settings, large amounts of waste contaminated with blood and body substances are handled and processed, increasing the risk of infection. Controlling the spread of infections in any health care facility is, therefore, vitally important.
