Health and safety p2
Some employee legislation is weakening, yet this act is strengthening in its influence and interpretation. Hygiene facilities- JCoSS's science department ensure they have a hygienic and exceptionally clean workplace for everyone otherwise complications will happen such as people getting diseases etc.
Unit 27 health and safety p2
One is by completing risk assessments each time their is building work happening on site to spot all the risks and make sure they don't happen and to know how to deal with them if they do happen by any reason out of our reach. Evacuation assembly areas- The science department ensure every student and teacher know exactly where to go in case of an emergency or a fire to prevent anyone getting hurt if one occurs. They do this by the storing the chemicals suitably in the technicians room, out of reach from any student or staff so they cannot play around with it as they do not know the dangers of each chemical. Chemicals- These are a big part of the science department because they use a lot of hazardous chemicals and substances in their lessons therefore this could cause a lot of issues but JCoSS's science department makes sure no dangerous occurrences happen. However, Mr Salbastein has to report to the health and safety team with any enquiries to the staffs health or safety within the science department. Also, by cleaning out the bins frequently help to reduce the risk of getting mould in the science department. In the science department their are various evacuation exit points to go out of, and in each classroom their is atlas two doors in which leads out to the outside of the school which leads you to the schools evacuation assembly point. Site building works- JCoSS occasionally have building work occurring on site and this could potentially be a risk to students and teachers. They cater for women and men along with disabled people as there are separate toilets for them which includes stuff like handles and within all the toilets they have individual cubicle locks for privacy which is compulsory. The science department understand how important it is to keep long leads away from the floor to avoid people tripping over them. Any spillages that occur in the science department and classrooms are to cleaned up efficiently to avoid any pests gathering round. By doing this it helps to identify the risks that could happen and eliminate them before anyone gets harmed.
Also, JCoSS buy desks which have rounder edges on them rather than really pointy edges of the desks which are a huge danger, this means that they are less likely to injure someone however, there is no need for anyone to have to come into contact with a sharp edge because the science classrooms have been designed to make sure there is enough room to walk through without touching the edge of the table.
These acts ad procedures influence care settings by offering practical examples of good practice and the way that health and social care should be delivered. Noise and atmospheric pollution.
The science department ensure that every corner of every desk is not close enough to a wall in order for their to be enough room for someone to walk past without touching the edge of the desk. The science department make sure nobody walks near a damaged item or the area it is in to ensure no-one is harmed by it to prevent a person being harmed.
Any spillages that occur in the science department and classrooms are to cleaned up efficiently to avoid any pests gathering round.
Health and safety physical environment
Physical Environment Falling objects- No heavy equipment or equipment that can cause an injury is kept anywhere that it could potentially fall from this is too ensure that it doesn't hit anyone or cause an accident. Moving objects- The technicians use trolleys to transfer substances and chemicals between classrooms and the office, these can be a hazard because people can trip over them and fall and have an accident. Hazards are also prevented by workers wearing protective clothing to protect themselves and staff and students. Another way they deal with these pests are by covering any chemicals and substances that get brought into the classrooms so that they cannot get into them. In the science department they keep sinks located in every classroom at the front of every desk and along the side of the classrooms with soap and sanitisers next to them, which are easy to access, there are toilets located very close to the science department with soap in them. This act also influences health and social care settings for service users. In order to do this they have to follow a load of regulations to ensure the workplace is hazard free. If these pests got into the science department they could cause serious damage to people or if they touch substances and chemicals, this is a serious issue. Another way the science department secure equipment is by stacking them up against a wall in the classroom. This is a huge responsibility and the law reflects the magnitude of this. The science teachers ensure safety regarding organic pests in their classrooms, because they have a duty to manage these organic pests and if they see any in the science department they are to report them immediately to a technician and they will deal with them as they could be poisonous and dangerous. Evacuation assembly areas- The science department ensure every student and teacher know exactly where to go in case of an emergency or a fire to prevent anyone getting hurt if one occurs.
