Managing fertility challenges in the workplace

Is your Health & Safety management in need of a cure?

When running a GP practice (general practice) or pharmacy, it’s your legal responsibility to keep patients and staff safe at all times. However, several Health & Safety risks are present in a medical setting, such as:

Inadequate monitoring of controlled drugs.

Handling needles.

Slip and trip hazards.

Faulty equipment.

To avoid injuries happening within the workplace, there are several pieces of Health & Safety legislation healthcare providers across the country must comply with, including the:

Health & Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981.

Health & Safety Executive (HSE).

The Health & Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations.

The Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992.

But with GPs, pharmacy technicians, and other healthcare professionals concentrating on providing the best care possible to patients, Health & Safety management can sometimes feel like a chore.

When you outsource your Health & Safety to us, we'll make sure you're fully compliant with both Health & Safety law, and guidance from the General Medical Council (GMC). Not to mention, we provide:

Risk assessment services.

24/7 advice.

Commercial legal protection insurance.

Working with Peninsula means we take the hassle of Health & Safety management off your shoulders, so you can continue providing the best care to your patients.

Improve the health of your written policies thanks to Peninsula's documentation service

Health and Safety law requires employers to provide certain documentation. Such as:

A Health and Safety policy.

Accident records.

Details of staff Health and Safety training.

Drafting a new policy can take both time and training to ensure it's legally watertight. But both can be hard to come by when running a business. When you outsource your Health & Safety to Peninsula, we’ll manage all your legal documentation. We have a team of qualified experts who will create all the policies your business needs. Not to mention, we’ll even help your workplace uphold safety procedures that protect both your employees and patients from harm, all whilst ensuring your legal compliance. So, whilst you spend time providing the best care to your patients, we'll spend time upholding your Health & Safety.

So whilst you continue to grow your practice or pharmacy, we'll support you with your HR documentation. And whenever the legislation changes, you can feel confident your documentation consultants will update your paperwork to keep you safe.

Control Health & Safety risks with Peninsula's risk assessment service

Keeping both employees and patients safe is imperative to running pharmacies and GP practices. To ensure the safety of those within your premises, you must establish what control measures you need to take. One way you can determine this is by conducting a risk assessment.

Risk assessments are a legal requirement under UK safety law, and play a vital role in both controlling and assessing the risk of harm occurring within your premises. However if it's your first time conducting an assessment, you may not know how or where to start.

When you work with Peninsula, one of our qualified safety consultants will come to your site and carry out your risk assessment. We'll even provide you with a unique action plan - complete with implementable actions - so you know how to control workplace risks.

And that isn't all, we'll even help you perform a fire risk assessment. So you can relax knowing you're doing all you can to keep your employees safe.
