The most important Act relating to Health and Safety is the Health and Safety at the Work Act 1974 (HASWA). This Act sets out the general duties for the employer to there employees. Mrs.Atwell has to attend meetings which are organised by others, e.g. Bradford careers and the Work Experience Unit and those which are organised by herself with the form tutors and year heads.

I didn't use my diary as much as l could have. As time went by and documents had to be completed, we couldn't waste valuable time so documents that to be produced as soon as possible. Some times documents would be delayed and we would fall back on work that ad to be done. Relying on people in the group was a difficult task for some. This is because disagreements were raised and the group didn't produce quality work as it should do, but the disagreements were solved and work was completed. I couldn't really rely on the group because when work had been given out equally, the work was produced wrong when instructions had been given what to do. On meetings Abdul Basit wouldn't arrive on the day so all the pressure would mount on the rest of the group to finish his work off in time. The Need to Communicate For a business to operate successfully it needs to have a good communication flow in the organisation. If the communication were not effective then the organisation would collapse. Communication is vital for the business. There are 6 different functional ares that an organisation has to run efficiently. > Administrative > Sales and Marketing > Production > Human Resources > Finance > Customer service Mrs.Atwell's functional area is administration. Mrs.Atwell needs to be able to promptly give information that is of need. She is Carlton Bolling College to perform a wide range of support activities. Mrs.Atwell needs to be able to communicate with students and form tutors. This is because when work experience placements have been arranged, the form tutors and students need to be notified. Communication is face-to-face with students and form tutors. Good administrative skills have to be obtained for Mrs.Atwell so that it strengthens the communication within the functional area. Confronting someone with information can be done by different methods. Face-to-Face: Mrs.Atwell uses this to face students about work experience placements, and also form tutors.
