Health and safety is a vast subject which can take a lot of time to research and understand. The contents of this module were written after studying and taking exams to qualify in the National General Certificate in Health and Safety. You don’t need this level of knowledge but it has enabled us to write a comprehensive guide for practitioners to simplify the application of health and safety law to practice.

Whilst clinics are considered low risk if an accident were to occur on your premises you would want to be able to produce evidence that you had taken action to make your practice safe. Some practice insurers require you to have carried out risk assessments of your premises – would you know how?
