How to Carry Out Risk Assessments in a Dental Practice
“The lead nurse had used a template supplied to the practice from a compliance company to carry out a risk assessment. However, she had not received training to enable her to competently assess the risks.”
When a practice fails a CQC inspection, it’s highly likely that risk assessments played a part. These complex tasks are sometimes delegated to team members with little training, and a question we are regularly asked on the iComply helpline is, ‘how do I carry out a risk assessment?’ The answer isn’t as simple as you’d think, join the webinar to find out why!
Rhys Jones, Agilio’s Deputy Head of Compliance and Health and Safety Expert, will provide an overview of risk assessment principles, which assessments you need to do and who should do them.
He will also look at common mistakes made when using templates, how to ‘follow up’, when to outsource, training requirements and what to do if you find you don’t have appropriate risk assessments in place.
Rhys will also outline what it means to be a ‘competent person’, what the law expects from you and why that’s important on inspection day.
This webinar is perfect for principals, practice managers and anyone responsible for Health and Safety.
