What happens when you don't carry out risk assessment!
Mick Murphy, our Learning and Development Manager is shown here giving a practical demonstration on the consequences of not carrying out a risk assessment!
Ironically this incident happened during a Health & Safety workshop Mick was running for Heathcotes managers at Jury's Inn, Nottingham. Fortunately no-one was injured although Mick's pride was slightly dented!
The workshop, for managers and deputies was aimed at developing a holistic approach to risk management in our services. Tasks included an SCIE based health and safety audit tool; identifying 'bite size' resources for training staff and developing a training tool to empower staff to conduct and write risk assessments. Participants also carried out a mock Health and Safety briefing for new starters using Heathcotes policy. Discussed health and wellbeing in combatting stress at work and concluded by completing a post course action plan.
Post course feedback was very positive and will be used as the basis for similar courses in the future.
