The health and safety of both your care team and the individuals within your care should always take priority. Unsafe environments are not only unpleasant to live or work in, but they also pose a risk to life. Neglecting your health and safety policies and procedures could lead to serious consequences. At the very least you could be breaking the law; at the very worst, you could cause a death which may have been prevented.
