Love Claire's 3 things!
1. Physical safety - staff should not be harmed by working in health and social care; whether PPE to prevent Covid 19/HAI, lifting and handling support so staff don't get injured , prevention of burnout through overwork/unsafe staffing levels; sufficient rest time so staff are properly eating and drinking on long shifts etc
2. Safety goals and teamwork - breaking down the professional silos and working in ways that have safety as a common core goal. Everyone can and should contribute to safety with staff supported with skills, training, knowledge and ways of working that promote safety
3. Psychological safety. A just and learning culture must be psychologically safe for staff to speak up for safety, to challenge unsafe care, to call out and address the blame culture and to work in an environment that supports their growth and self esteem. Leaders and organisations providing the space and support for staff to raise difficult issues and demonstrate that the listening leads to action and change (then sharing for wider implementation)
