Residential Nursing & Care Home Health and Safety Policy
This Residential Nursing or Care Home Health and Safety Policy has been written specifically to suit a Residential Care or Nursing Home. Both Care and Nursing Homes have to comply with a mix of health and safety regulations, rules governing qualified nurses, controlled drug use and dispensing, and others imposed by the Care Quality Commission.
If you employ five or more staff the law says you must have a written Health and Safety Policy.
This Nursing or Care Home Health and Safety Policy and its accompanying documents – the Health and Safety Statement and the Arrangements & Procedures when used together, set out your commitment to safeguarding the health and safety of not only your employees but that of your residents or patients and their guests or visitors.
This Health and Safety Policy is broken into sections for ease of use. It includes the Statement of General Policy, then further sections that state the health and safety duties of the senior management including where relevant the designated health and safety person.
When signed and dated by the most senior person in the business this document will affirm your business’ determination to be compliant with health and safety legislation.
This template is fully editable so you can adapt it to be completely relevant to your own situation.
There is no specific reference to Covid 19 within this policy as it can be used as a general policy document, although the safe working practices detailed therein have relevance to the Covid 19 pandemic.
