The hazards faced by those working in a hospital or community care setting are very different to those an office worker may be presented with. Risks to staff range from biological, such as infectious diseases or anaesthetic gas; through to physical risks such as patient handling or long night shifts on foot.

It is impossible to remove every risk in more predictable environments let alone healthcare settings, so it remains the duty of the employers and responsibility of the employees to ensure they are well informed. This Health and Safety for Healthcare Workers course has been developed by healthcare sector training experts, Espirita, and is designed especially for health and social care providers. The course imparts practical advice on risk assessment, management and regulation in line with the latest UK legislation.
