OHS Site Reviews
Angels Nursing undertakes a site review of all new client sites prior to any team member being assigned. In addition, all team members must undergo a site-specific briefing and induction prior to entering a client’s premises.
This induction and briefing includes a review of relevant manual handling procedures and a briefing of any other OHS policies that may be specific to individual site.
