Hi, how about:
1. An individual slipping, tripping or falling, sickness & diarrhoea, coughs, colds, flu, scabies, head lice.
2. Apply your First Aid training, follow organisations' Policies & Procedures eg. complete an Accident/Incident Form, record in individuals' file.
3. Following company's Policies & Procedures, staff knowing their responsibilities & that of empolyer, trained, experienced staff, eg. use of hoists, infection control, food safety & hygiene, COSHH, First Aid, staff setting a good example, etc

I know, it can be confusing & frustrating, especially when it could be worded alot more clearly!
All the best

Hi, think about how everyone concerned may be affected, eg an outbreak of food poisoning, how this would affect residents/service users: those directly affected; sickness, diarrhoea, stomach cramps, dehydration ( may lead to being admitted to hospital) long-term complications, immune system being compromised, they may have existing health issues, be less able to fight off infections, or be vulnerable due to their age/lifestyle/circumstances.
People who live wtih individual/know them/attend the same day centre: not physically affected but emotionally: anxiety, stress, worry: will they be next? how ill are their friends?
Family & friends; worry, scared, will the person be ok? Financially affected.
Staff, they may be physically affected themselves, also feelings of guilt: were they responsible/what did they do/could of done, staff reputation, staff morale, short-staffed, extra pressure, stress, blaming those responsible.
The organisation; consequences, (reputation, investigation, profits, jobs)
