Introduction

D1. In this task I will using examples from work experience, evaluate the effectiveness of policies and procedures for promoting health, safety and security. Every care setting in health and social care has policies and procedures, these policies and procedures are there to maintain safety and security to service users and employers. However these following policies and procedures are the one's that were promoted in St.Mary's primary school. Health and Safety at work Act 1974 Regulations under the health and safety at work Act 1974 Food Safety Act 1995 Manual Handling operations regulations Act 1992 Fire precautions regulations Act 1997 Every Child matter Act 2004 Equal opportunities Act 2004 These policies and procedures maintain that everyone within the establishment is safe, each policy provide security and safety in that care setting in a way or another. Because of these certain policy children are treated better then they were 10 years ago, they are more looked after but also they are given equal opportunities. For example Every child matter is a policy that has brought a lot of safety in care setting such as schools and nursery's. ...read more.

I personally think that this policy has being great since it came out because more people with disability, different religious, different skin colour are being given the opportunity to do something or to work somewhere. And it just keeps getting better and better because more schools and shops have a different variety of people working within them. However this policy does not just affect adults they also affect children's and teenagers in school and college. It actually affects people in every single country. The way I seeing this policy being used in St.Mary's primary school was by hem giving the kids the same opportunity to watch certain shows that were being presented in the school and participate in contest that school organised or participate in. To promote this policy, managers of care settings should make posters of the staff already working there and promote them by putting the posters on display and show people how they are being diverse, and given people equal opportunities. Then people will know that when they apply to jobs and don't get it, it won't be because the care setting is not given them equal opportunities. ...read more.

Conclusion

The teacher that is organising the trip should really make sure that he/her has the right amount of staff that he/her needs when organising the trip. It's very important that staff seat down and discuss how many staff would be accompanying the kids during that trip as soon as they know the amount of kids that would be attending that trip. Without the right amount of staff the security and safety provided for the kids wouldn't be enough. Staffs that are taking the kids to see or touch the animals needs to make sure that it is safe for the kids to go and see them, it's very important that the staffs verify this because if they see that the kids may be in danger by going to see the animal's then they need to find a way around it so that the kids are not in any danger. Or they just have to cancel that activity, because no matter how disappointed the kids are, their safety comes first. ?? ?? ?? ??
