Risk assessment is the determination of the possibility of accident or danger in relation to a given situation or any existing recognised threat. However, according to the KLORA guidelines, risk assessments should not be focused simply on keeping residents safe at all costs; they should be person-centred and promote independence, choice and autonomy. They should also be reviewed regularly, and all members of staff should have a clear understanding of the risk assessment process. In an effective risk management system, findings from risk assessments are acted upon and the organisation continually improves its health and safety systems while ensuring quality outcomes for service users.
