Positive Risk Taking Training



An engaging delivery with clear and relevant applications provide the candidate with the background knowledge, legislation and procedural awareness of risk assessment in a care setting.


Effective risk assessment is a mandatory part of all working environments, none more so than in any care setting, where clients are by definition vulnerable and frail. Risk management plays an important part in the day to day life of both the organisation and individual care staff, and should be engrained in everything a carer does.

Care-FULLYTRAINED’s Positive Risk Assessment In A Social Care Setting Training Course takes the candidate logically and clearly through the risk management process, from being aware of the relevant legislation, identifying hazards, assessing risk and onwards through risk reduction, balancing risk against client choice, and the importance of recording everything.

Detailed explanations with practical application examples help make this course informative and effective. It aims to increase candidates awareness of both their responsibility and their organisations responsibility, for meeting industry standards and keeping service users, our residents, staff and workplaces safe.
