Risk assessments are very important as they form an integral part of a good occupational health and safety management plan. They help to:

Create awareness of hazards and risks.
Identify who may be at risk (employees, cleaners, visitors, contractors, the public, etc).
Determine if existing control measures are adequate or if more should be done.
Prevent injuries or illnesses when done at the design or planning stage.
Prioritize hazards and control measures.

Weegy: Daily living tasks may affect those depending on their culture or background, as what someone may have been brought up believing, [ may not necessarily be accepted as the general view of society within Great Britain in these current times.It is important to clarify the role and responsibilities for providing support in order to ensure that all codes of conduct, professional boundaries and legalities are upheld.

Support the individual to store food safely
Weegy: Storing Vegetables and Fruit 1. [ Vegetables should be stored at the bottom of your fridge, in a separate compartment known as the vegetable crisper, however, you should keep potatoes, sweet potatoes, onions, and garlic in a cool, dark and well aired place other than your fridge, tomatoes on the other hand are juicier when left out, but when tomatoes are being used any left over should be chilled 2. Apples and berries are best kept out of the fridge do this for a riper and juicier fruit, summer fruits, melons and grapes should also sit at room temperature until they are ripe. 3. Citrus fruits are good at room temp unless its a warm day, in which case, its best to have t hem in the fridge. Bananas should be ideally kept in the fridge to keep longevity. Storing Dairy Products 4. Always check the date on any dairy produce, especially milk, a simple guide line to follow is not buy milk if it expires in 2-3 days. Milk starts smelling just before its expiry date even if its kept in the fridge. A wee tip to think about is to always grab the milk from the back. Storing Frozen Foods 5. Pack all your frozen foods neatly in the freezer so there is plenty of room for the door to close. If any food defrosts on the way home never ever refreeze to do this is you run the risk of cultivating bacteria. Keep the food frozen until needed to maintain quality, as bacteria will begin to multiply when the food is thawed. Storing Meat Products 6. Fresh meat such as chicken and fish always carry some bacteria so it is very important that these foods are always kept as cold as possible. Bacterial growth slows down in the cooler temperatures, when the heat increases the bacteria multiplies exponentially, cooking food properly kills bacteria. Store meat, fish and chicken in the coldest part of the fridge. ] (More)

Support the individual to prepare food in a way that promotes active participation and safety
Weegy: Improving household food security 29. Food security is defined in its most basic form as access by all people at all times to the food needed for a healthy life. Achieving food security has three dimensions. [ First, it is necessary to ensure a safe and nutritionally adequate food supply both at the national level and at the household level, Second, it is necessary to have a reasonable degree of stability in the supply of food both from one year to the other and during the year. Third, and most critical, is the need to ensure that each household has physical, social and economic access to enough food to meet its needs. This means that each household must have the knowledge and the ability to produce or procure the food that it needs on a sustainable basis. In this context, properly balanced diets that supply all necessary nutrients and energy without leading to over-consumption or waste should be encouraged, It is also important to encourage the proper distribution of food within the household, among all its members. 30. The right to an adequate standard of living, including food, is recognized in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
