4.1. Health and Safety/Induction


Students should be provided with a health and safety and induction checklist which covers issues, such as fire procedures and accident reporting and issues they need to know in relation to 'getting started' in their placement.  These latter issues include dress code, working hours and reporting line management.  This enables the student to ask about these issues without feeling embarrassed and also ensures they find out all of the relevant information early in their placement.  This should be completed and signed by the student within their first week of placement.  Students may be asked to submit this form or it can be checked during a visit.

Students should be advised that they should contact the School immediately they have any concerns regarding health and safety or their working environment.  The School should respond immediately to any such expression of concern from students by either discussion with the student and placement provider and/or a visit.
