    UKHCA Guidance: Controlling Scalding Risks from Bathing and Showering

    Front cover of document

    Care workers work in people's homes where they are unable to control the physical environment, making health and safety a challenge. This is particularly true when it comes to helping service users bath and shower in their own homes. Our guidance considers good practice and what providers can do to control scalding risks to service users when care packages include help with bathing and showering. This includes careful risk assessment, staff training, well–drafted and implemented policies and procedures, and the use of equipment, such as thermometers, where appropriate. Updated in August 2016 to reflect current HSE guidance.
