Is this a hazard?Tick each correct answer
Working with clients in their homes 
A strained back

Lifting a box 
Working long hours 

Question 2


Question 3 

You nearly tripped over a similar box last week and you moved it outside to the rubbish bin – where it should have been placed. Now someone has done the same thing again!

Why is it important that you report this particular hazard, rather than just moving it out to the bin like you did last time?

Jenny is concerned that this makes the environment unsafe for the workers. The staff all get extremely hot while serving the meals. It is always a very busy time and they are running around getting the residents in place, serving meals, assisting with feeding, packing up the dishes and so on. Jenny notices that some of the staff are getting uncomfortable. Ian had sweat pouring off him yesterday and Rebecca was bright red in the face. By the end of mealtimes they are all hot and bothered. 

Question 4

Answer the following questions.


Question 5

While you are on a home visit, a client tells you that she is feeling unwell. She has stomach cramps, feels very nauseous and has bad diarrhea. She tells you she must have picked it up off her grandson who visited yesterday, as he was unwell when he was visiting and had to rush off to use her toilet. 

Question 6

List five things you can do to remain up to date with safe work practices.

Safe practice 1:

Question 8


Look at the diagram above. 

Why does this method of lifting produce less strain on the musculoskeletal system than bending at the waist?


Question 9

Jenny was injured at work when using a portable hoist to transfer a client with mobility issues.  The injury occurred because Jenny was not given any training in how to use the equipment. Jenny’s supervisor had told her to follow the instructions in the manual – Jenny couldn’t find the manual so she decided to figure it out herself.
