A  total of 108,000 safeguarding referrals were reported by adults at risk  in 2011/2012. The responsibilities of care workers involved in  protecting the health, well-being and human rights of individuals are  far-reaching. Allowing individuals to live free from harm, abuse and  neglect can often mean involving health agencies, government departments  or the police. Understanding the fundamentals of safeguarding is  essential for anyone working in adult health and social care.
