The situations in which the responsibility for health and safety lies with the individual when the individual does not comply with the assessments and does not follow the procedures

The situations in which the responsibility for health and safety lies with the individual when the individual does not comply with the assessments and does not follow the procedures. For example if a resident smoked there is a designated smoking area but the resident may decide they want to smoke in there and they want to smoke in their bedroom or in the lounge, they could be putting both themselves and others at risk. A resident may have to use a walking aid such as a walking stick or a Zimmer frame to mobilise around the care home but they might not want to use it and say that they don’t need it. This could cause the resident to fall and put themselves and others in danger. Another example could be that a resident keeps moving the furniture about to make it easier for them to get past or see the TV better, this could be putting the resident and others at risk of falling or hurting themselves. Could also cause some confusion to the other residents.
