In spite of the tight regulations laid down by the Health and Safety Executive, concern is continuing to grow around resident safety in care homes. Some care homes are endangering the safety of the service users by not adhering to strict guidelines around safe surface temperature radiators and pipework.

The recommended surface temperature for radiators and pipework is 43°C. Non-compliant homes risk warning notice or even closure by The Care Quality Commissions or The Health and Safety Executive.

It’s essential for care and nursing homes to be easy and efficient to clean as it has to be done so often. Care homes can become quite busy as the staff occupy the residents, care for them and during visiting hours.

Part of the staff's role involves the use of lifting and manoeuvring equipment, transporting users from one room to the next and ensuring that daily activities-like mealtimes are efficiently carried out.

Ass care and nursing environments can be busy, the need for resources that are low maintenance is essential.

Care and nursing homes normally steal the spotlight when it comes to safety considerations regarding heating, however, retirement villages shouldn’t be overlooked.

Even though the occupants of retirement villages are not as vulnerable to injury as those in care and nursing homes, it’s still important to recognise that a high level of care is necessary.

There are few things to consider when deciding upon radiators for retirement villages, such as: ease of use, cleaning efficiency, aesthetic appeal and risk reduction.
