Is Your Training Legally Accurate?

If the advice you receive is legally wrong and especially if that wrong advice leads to harm being caused, you may be open to a legal challenge if it is proven that the harm could have been prevented if legally correct advice had been given in the first instance.


Case law has clarified that responsibility cannot be devolved by the most senior person to a third party.


If the advice you receive is legally wrong and that wrong leads to harm being caused, you may be open to a legal challenge if it is proven that the harm could have been prevented if legally correct advice had been given in the first instance.


The most senior person is responsible for the safety of all staff, volunteers and the people they support.


The ability of staff to be able to understand the principles of service support, duty-of-care, and the use of reasonable force, are important aspects of the learning.


As part of your terms and conditions the training provider should be committed to providing you with post training support, keeping you up to date with relevant information. 


Make sure that the training you receive is legally accurate.


Happy Christmas 🎄
