Name three considerations to keep in mind when making referrals. Workers involved in community development work have the same responsibilities to meet duty of care obligations and to work ethically as workers involved in providing individual services. As a community development worker, you have a duty of care to ensure that your actions do not cause harm or negatively affect the people with whom you are working. This means you should ensure that you carry out your work in a way that would be expected of a reasonable person. You have a duty to ensure that the work you do with people is based on safe and responsible work practices at all times. Community workers are required to use their professional judgment and experience when making decisions about the most reasonable action to be taken in certain situations. Contents 2.

Bookmarks Click to complete Practice task 6 Duty of care and negligence Community service organisations and workers have a responsibility to provide a duty of care to ensure the safety and wellbeing of people in receipt of their services. Legislative and regulatory obligations underpin an organisation’s policies, which determine the procedures to guide service delivery that promotes and enhances the safety and wellbeing of all people. Duty of care describes the legal obligation that individuals and organisations have to anticipate and act on possible causes of injury and illness that may exist in their work environment or as a result of their actions. Duty of care is part of common law and it requires you to do what is fair and reasonable to prevent harm or injury to the person or their property. While aspects of WHS (work health and safety) legislation may vary between states and territories, there are common legislative requirements and obligations under the duty of care principle. Here is more information about duty of care and breaches of this principle. Notes Dt ca Duty of care is the obligation a person has to act in a way that would not cause harm. nlc Negligence occurs when duty of care has been breached and harm to either person or property ensues. It is the legal and ethical obligation of any community worker, supervisor or organisation to ensure that people using services are not exposed to unnecessary or unreasonable risk.
