Workplace hazards and link them to safeguarding services users. 

a. Apply to social care settings or your placement in terms of measures that are in place or measures that you might introduced based on this knowledge to promote a safer environment for service users.  So it can be examples from practice or it can be examples of ways you would promote based on this knowledge.
