The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 was designed so that all staff and clients of a company or organisation could operate in a safe environment. As learners will access tools and equipment they are unfamiliar with, some of which are potentially dangerous, Risk assessment will be central to my lesson plans. As Gravells says: “Learners are entitled to learn in a safe and healthy environment” (Gravells, 2012). Also associated with Health and Safety are the Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992, the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 (COSHH) and the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1995(RIDDOR), which will need to be considered by tutors.
Equality act 2010 helps ensure accessibility to learning with a view to equality and diversity. As I will have access to students’ personal data, such as full names, addresses, telephone numbers I must ensure that both my record keeping and that of my organisation is demonstrably secure as required in the Data Protection Act 1988.
The Society for Education and Training (SET) Code of Practice sets out the professional behaviour and conduct expected of members of SET(set.et-foundation.co.uk,2018).
