This guide provides practical advice to health and community service organisations about how to manage work health and safety for community workers working in people’s homes. The guide outlines many common hazards found in the community services sector, primarily in the home environment, and provides solutions based on the principles of risk management. It is important for all relevant parties, including clients and primary carers, to work together to identify work health and safety risks and the best ways to manage them.
