Care/Nursing Home H&S Statement/Statement of Intent
This Care Home / Nursing Home Health and Safety Statement has been written specifically to suit a residential care home or nursing home. Residential care homes or nursing homes have to comply with a mix of health and safety regulations, rules governing qualified nurses and those imposed by the Care Quality Commission. These regulations and the accompanying documents – the Health and Safety Policy and the Arrangements & Procedures - together set out the business’s commitment to safeguarding the health and safety of not only its employees but also its residents or patients and their guests.
Even if you run a very small care home, it is unlikely that you will have less than five employees (including part –timers), so to meet the requirements of the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 you must have a written Health and Safety Policy in addition to your Health and Safety Statement. Having a Care or Nursing Home Health and Safety Statement is the first step in ensuring your compliance.
When signed and dated by the most senior person in the business i.e. the Managing Director or Senior Partner, this document should be displayed in your workplace to demonstrate compliance.
