Quantum Compliance has considerable experience managing risks within social housing and the care home sectors, protecting those that are most vulnerable.
A fresh set of eyes on your existing health and safety arrangements can often identify hazards which could reasonably be expected to cause harm. We concentrate on hazards across the organisation and not just those which could result in serious harm. We can identify from your employees and residents specific risks and procedures which are weak and have potential for problems.
Due to the vulnerability of residents / tenants, typical risks arising from hazards in social housing / residential care homes can be significant. These risks apply to all users not just employees but visitors and others. In response to these risks, we have developed a broad range of services including:
- Manual handling
- Risk assessments of equipment use and other work activities
- Fire risk assessments
- Workplace risk assessments
- Detailed safety audits
- Annual action plans
We can also consider maintenance such as the effectiveness of thermostatic valves on baths and showers, condition of electrical appliances, cleaning procedures, condition of furniture and health and safety tripping/slipping hazards.
