Before you start to assess risks make sure you have a good understanding of your organisation’s risk management policy/strategy

Healthcare staff have a duty to protect patients as far as ‘reasonably practicable’ It is best to focus on the risks that really matter. Keep risk assessment simple – do not use techniques that are overly complex for the type of risk being assessed.

The saying “nothing ventured, nothing gained” makes the point that unless someone takes a risk and tries new activities, they will never know of the positive benefits that might result. In our society, people are encouraged to travel widely, take part in regular leisure and sporting activities, go to college, develop careers and have families. These are all activities that don’t just happen, but mean people have to take risks to achieve their aspirations.

For many people taking risks is an accepted part of life. However people with a disability and older people are often discouraged from taking risks, either because of their perceived limitations or fear that they or others might be harmed.

Changes in society’s attitude towards disability, social care and health policy now mean that people with a disability and older people are being actively encouraged to increase their independence in their daily activities and decisions about the services they receive. The focus is now more on enhancing people’s abilities rather than concentrating on their disabilities.
