Many people are supported in their homes by people who work along side the health and social care service such as social workers,nursers ,doctor and care givers or they may get support from their family members and friends. An elderly person may choose to stay in their own homes instead of a residential care home while seeking help and support from others,however this can lead to potential opportunities for abuse happening to the person who Is being looked after. When an individual is getting support at home by a carer, the individual being cared for is vulnerable and defenseless and therefor this makes them a target for abuse,another example is abuse by strangers,when an elderly person lives alone they are at risk of people calling at the door and then gaining access to their homes,they may steal items from them or mistreat them or cause intimidation.
Occupational Health is an area of medicine which concentrates on work-related illness, the effects of work on health and the effects of health on work. Occupational Health seeks to promote positive health whilst working and, in many cases, whilst studying and undergoing work placements.
The first legislation I will discuss is ‘Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) regulations (2002)’ which is used to reduce the risk of injury whilst doing an activity. It can be used in any line of work, and you have to consider safety factors about it. When using personal protective equipment, they must check if it is suitable for use, if it offers the right protection for the user, or if it needs replacing, because if it needs replacing then it is not fit for purpose. The main areas where people use PPE is on the sports field or in a building site. For example a builder, as shown in the diagram below, is wearing a helmet to protect his head, goggles to prevent any dangerous objects getting in his eyes, gloves so his hands don’t get hurt when
In this role, I advised customers on various make up, skincare and fragrance products.

What did you do this week to help with your understanding of course material? During clinical this week I first went to Ware Shoals Primary School. There we continued to help with hearing screenings. This allowed us to learn how to communicate with small children as well and older children. Many of the younger children had a more difficult time understanding the process of the hearing screening and what was needed of them. After a while myself and my classmates began to come up with different ideas to help them to understand so that the process could go by faster. We came up with the idea to practice with the children and for those who were afraid to put the headphones on, we would but them on ourselves so that they could see that it was okay and not going to hurt them. At the School for the Deaf and Blind I got the opportunity to help with gathering students to get their heights and weights. It was interesting to interact with them because I do not know sign language. We had to come up with ways to ask students for their name so that we could correctly labels the heights and weights.
My goals for my second clinical were to know how to read electrocardiogram strips and to take more opportunities to talk with my patient. During clinical I learned that my patient had a history of Atrial Fibrillation and Rapid Ventricular Response. In my mind I attempted to picture how those dysrhythmias differ from the normal sinus rhythm. My patient also had family present to offer him support.
Three points that I would like to reflect upon in this critical reflective journal is the current collaboration with Hawthorne and the project we have been asked to carried out. Another aspect would be about my expectations that I had with collaborating with Hawthorne and how I feel about it as of right now.
The specific practice I used this week for experimental practice was writing in a gratitude journal. I chose to utilize the practice of the gratitude journal because it seemed like the quickest practice that I could do after a long day. I started my gratitude journal on Monday, April 3rd.
This is a summary of my learning whilst being on the foundation degree. I am finally at the end of my counselling degree and I think this has been my biggest accomplishment to date, alongside raising my boys. I have learned such a lot about myself and gained a better insight into how and why I relate to others the way I did and still do.
Safety and health in the mining industry has been a growing concern across countries worldwide. There has been a stable improvement of safety performance in the South African mining industry between the year 2003 and 2013, although injuries and fatalities remain high. This raises the concern to improve the health and safety of mine employees (M. da Silva da Mata & F. Kalema, 2013).
