My employer must follow the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1992, their responsibilities are to provide the mandatory training and supervisions, ensure policies and procedures are put in place, plan, organise, control, monitor and review health and safety arrangements, make sure the equipment is available and to maintain risk assessments and to deal with chemicals and other substances safely. As an employee I also have to follow COSHH 2002 (control of substances hazardous to health) in my workplace. This means I have to follow the procedures set in place by my employer and attend training. I have to make sure any hazardous substances are kept locked away where unauthorized people cannot get them. I also need to dispose of hazardous substances correctly and not mix substances in case of any hazardous fumes or explosions that may occur.
To achieve the distinction criteria I will be evaluating the need for security and control in the custodial environment. Security and control in the custodial environment is the different levels of security procedures in place within the custodial environment such as physical, dynamic and procedural and control is the measures taken to ensure the safety of both prisoners and staff. Security and control is needed in a custodial care environment as people are sent there for a reason so if they were allowed to do to do whatever they want it wouldn’t be a punishment. An advantage of having control is that the staff will always have authority over the prisoners, which is vital as it enables them to enforce discipline. Another advantage
The correctional administrators and health directors need to be informed/able to meet the complicated needs of inmates with mental health disorders. Amongst the staff should have the knowledge for screening and assessment, case management, psychopharmacology, and suicide prevention services, and discuss as well as find methods for effectively organizing and managing in-prison mental health services. There should be physical facilities, staff, staff training, or clinical resources to meet the needs of
There are many control measures in place in a custodial environment to ensure the safety of everyone, control measures are needed as they will receive effective responses and it makes sure there is equal treatment for all prisoners. Control is needed in a custodial care environment as people are sent there for a reason because they have wronged society, having them do whatever they want is not a punishment. An advantage of having control in the prison is that the staff will always have authority over the prisoners, which is vital as they must be able to enforce discipline. Another advantage of having control is that they can keep an account of offences that prisoners have committed, this comes in useful when reviewing the prisoner, for example
Santos explains how one of the wardens, in the FCI McKean institution Warden Luther, was there to help those inmates. Warden Luther made it known that this correctional institution and its employees would treat the inmates with “dignity” and the inmates were expected to “act responsibly” (Santos, p. 149). The book describes how the warden posted signs declaring, “Luther’s Belief about the Treatment of Inmates”, which gives rules to staff on how to treat the inmates in a dignified fashion. (Santos, p.148). When you have a warden like Luther, willing to help inmates regardless of their criminal record or status, it gives hope that the prison can be called a correctional facility.
As in everything in life there is always room that something can be changed to make it better, and the idea of rehabilitation is no different. Rehabilitation is a very useful tool utilized by the court. According to The Free Dictionary (2014), rehabilitation is the process of preparing a prisoner for a productive life upon release from prison. So what this means the prisoner receives classes and special treatment to ensure that they can live a proper life once they are given their second chance into society. The process of rehabilitation will begin in prison and will continue once the inmate is released into society.
Correctional staff plays an important role in the assessment of inmates and probationers by providing information for the mental health professional. They are unique in observance because they interact with the inmates and witness them in a variety of situations and contexts. Correctional officials lay a major role, and their ability to observe and communicate with the inmates is very important. They should know what information is important and how to interpret that information o the mental health professionals. Mental health professionals use the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Forth Edition, Text Revision also known as DSM-IV-TR to determine the mental health categories.
