User: How does a risk assesment support risk today

Weegy: A risk assessment is an important step in protecting your workers and your business, as well as complying with the law. It helps you focus on the risks that really matter in your workplace ? the ones with the potential to cause harm. [ In many instances, straightforward measures can readily control risks, for example, ensuring spillages are cleaned up promptly so people do not slip or cupboard drawers kept closed to ensure people do not trip. For most, that means simple, cheap and effective measures to ensure your most valuable asset ? your workforce ? is protected. A risk assessment is simply a careful examination of what, in your work, could cause harm to people, so that you can weigh up whether you have taken enough precautions or should do more to prevent harm. Workers and others have a right to be protected from harm caused by a failure to take reasonable control measures. ]

User: How does a risk assesment support risk taking for service users

Weegy: It is important to plan the complete risk assessment process. The first point is to decide who should be involved (a project group). Involving workers in the risk assessment is essential. They know best what constitutes a problem in their daily work. [ [ You also need to think about what form the different steps of the assessment will take. The instruments and methods that will be used should also be identified. As a part of the risk assessment, professional associations recommend a comparison with laws and policies. Ask yourself which laws and policies you have to consider. In the health care sector well-known occupational risks and hazards that should be addressed are: * Chemical agents (including exposure, toxicity assessment and risk characterisation); * Biological agents / infection risks; * Accidents, e.g. needlestick injuries; * Physical strains, e.g. patient handling and transfer; ] ]

explain why using an individuals care plan contributes to working in a person centred way
Weegy: Care Plans are the primary source of Patient information. Every specialty, PT/OT/Nursing etc. do an evaluation of the individual and formulate a program of goals for the patient to attain, therapies needed, schedule of goal levels, etc. [ [ Each person interacting with the patient can refer to the care plan for any information needed. Done properly, the care plan reflects a total person and how to best help them fulfill the goals. A care plan may be known by other names eg support plan, individual plan. It is the document where day to day requirements and preferences for care and support are detailed. Person centred thinking and planning is founded on the premise that genuine listening contains an implied promise to take action. PCP tools can be very powerful methods of focused listening, creative thinking and alliance building that have been shown both by experience and by research to make a significant impact in the lives of people who use human support services, when used imaginatively by people with a commitment to person-centeredness. Used well, with enthusiasm and commitment, these tools can be an excellent way of planning with people who might otherwise find it difficult to plan their lives, or who find that other people and services are planning their lives for them. ] ] (More)
