Good overview of Occupational Health and Safety issues in an aged care setting. Will enable staff to identify risks of injury due to manual handling and facility environment , and report these risks so that an alternative method can be implemented. All staff are responsible for the wellbeing of themselves, other staff, their residents, and any person entering a facility.
