Health and Safety

All health & safety training on the Service Specific list should be identified through the use of risk assessment. Consider a proportionate response to training – for example, sharing a PAT qualified person with other nearby services; using the ladder safety checklists where only step ladders are being used rather than a one day course; identify the most appropriate person/people to undertake the training.

Apart from the use of evac chairs and tree management, all courses can be accessed from DCC Health & safety team.

Keep yourself alert to courses designed for DCC adult providers. Notification of these will come via Study Buddy or through emails to Service Managers.
