HEALTHCARE HEALTH AND SAFETY
In 2016 there were 17 health and safety breaches in healthcare organisations resulting in 3 suspended prison sentences for individuals and fines totalling £1m.
Since 2012 the Health and Safety Executive have served 292 Improvement Notices and 32 Prohibition Notices on healthcare organisations.
Therefore healthcare activities are not immune from health and safety breaches and prosecution.
This need not be the case providing the organisation takes reasonable steps to manage health and safety.
