Extracts from this document...

Introduction

´╗┐Crystal Reid Unit 4 This report I am going to introduce is a risk assessment based on everyday actives and how it can be assessed and prevented. A hazard is anything that can cause harm. A risk is how high or low that someone will be harmed by a hazard. A risk assessment is a careful examination of what could cause harm to people and the necessary precautions that would be needed to know to prevent harm. The 5 steps of carrying out a risk assessment is to firstly identify the hazard, estimate it, how you can be able to control it, then record it and finally Monitor it to ensure it doesn?t happen again. Everyday risk can be such as personal care this can be shower slips, Mobility and travel is another risk and this could be driving on the road. When at work or even in education such at being at college, a risk that can accrue could be for example a fire; another everyday active can be hobbies and leisure?s. ...read more.

The next step I would take is to record my findings and implement on them. I would document these into a risk form and make sure that the precautions are being taken and place to help prevent the risk as soon as possible. The final step that I would take is to review the assessment and update on it if necessary. I would do this by checking back in a week or two that the precautions I have done is being completed and making sure that if something new comes up I would be able to act on it. The next everyday activity that I will be talking about is Personal Care. The risk in this could be slipping in the shower. The reason why this is a risk is; for example, if I decided to go and taken a shower and came out the bathroom leaving it all wet with water on the floor. Then another person came to use the shower, while not seeing the water on the floor the person fell and accidentally hit their head. ...read more.

Conclusion

The first thing I would do is to identify the risk, in this activity the risk would be the fire and student?s n other staffs being injured. The next step would be to decide who might be at risk; everyone in the school is at risk of the fire. I would then evaluate the risk and decided on the precautions that would be needed. On this traffic light I would choose the red because this is a very dangerous risk. The precautions I would use is to get everyone to the nearest fire exit calmly. The saftey of the people are more important. The next step I would take is to record my findings and implement on them. I would document these into a risk form. And put up safety signs and make it noticeable so that both the staff members, children and kitchen workers are aware. The final step that I would take is to review the assessment, I will do this by having an insepction done and a saftey check of the fire extinguisher , fire foam. And also by having a first aid kit in hand. ...read more.
