Because some people are frail, they may be more vulnerable to hazards in the environment and this can result in life-threatening injuries. As a caregiver, you have a responsibility to ensure the safest environment possible for the individuals you serve. This course will help you prevent and manage accidents that occur as a result of environmental hazards.
