The environment- When children attend a setting or a house that may not be for children they are going to come across more hazards than they usually do as child aware places are more aware and take out health and safety precautions. These may be trailing wires, loose rugs, cupboards with no locks, no baby gates etc. These are not thought of being made safely secured as children are not usually within the
The financial scandals in early 2000s caused the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 to be created. Enron, WorldCom and the accounting firm, Arthur Andersen, to intentionally mislead their shareholders by exaggerating their profits and understating their expenses. The scandals had raised the importance of internal control for enhancing corporate governance. Therefore, the government established the SOX to protect the interest of the investors and employees and to monitor the companies and auditors.
Children and young adults always experiment new ways and new things of doing things. As they are growing in a world of hazards and dangers that it would not be correct to keep them far from some of critical situations where we must support but not smother them as the children could possibly grow up unsociable, nervous and unhappy , if we restrict them from such situations, we may restrict their learning. So, it is very important that teaching the students the skills that will help in managing dangers and risk for themselves. By giving the opportunity to experience a certain level of risky practices will helps the students to develop competences and confidence to make their own balance approach in risk taking, so that the students are not over protected.
A risk assessment is where we look at all the risks and try to find a way of overcoming or try to reduce the risks, as well as looking at the risks that is involved with many of the activities that the residents are able to do, then what can be done and put in place then to reduce the risks so they can take part in the activity risk and harm reduced, because they always have the right to be included in activities that they want to participate in. Therefor if an individual wants to do something independently, for example, make themselves a cup of tea, then a risk assessment will need to be completed to minimize the risk of that individual burning themselves or other residents, such as cap the temperature of the hot water, instead of taking their independence away from them and for us to do it for
The assessment of risk is a critical part of child welfare advocacy. The review of instruments of different instruments for assessing risk and safety in child welfare focuses on instrument reliability, validity, outcomes, and use with children and families of color. The evaluation of risk assessment instruments generally includes broad categories of areas related to abuse and neglect, behavioral descriptions, procedures to determine levels of risk, and standardized forms to record this information (Rycus & Hughes, 2003). In the process of screening for a case study, instruments are used to determine if the child or family needs further assessment, treatment, or intervention services. In evaluating the Van Sise family I have found that the following

While taking the health risk assessment I knew right from the start that some of the information would be off. The assessment asked about things such as blood pressure and cholesterol, and I do not know these measures right of the top of my head. While looking at the results, it stated that I am at risk of dying within the next 10 years. When comparing my risk percentages to the average 27 year old male, I did very well and was average compared to the others. However one factor that I scored above average on was the chance of a heart attack. The reason for this is that fact that my weight is to high for my height. If you look at my BMI you would see that I am over by a lot, but one thing that this assessment does not account for is the fact that I work out every day. Muscle weighs more than fat and usually throws off numbers for

As a member of the Homeland Security Assessment Team for our organization, we will attempt to build a program that will allow us to meet the goals of our business plan as well as the needs of our Homeland Security Assessment that we will create from the results of our evaluation of our organization (Fisher, 2004).

When we do our Baldridge Criteria measurements of our organization we will be able to determine the areas of our organization that we are already protected from weaknesses and vulnerabilities; and will be able
To define the Council on Competitiveness Business Model, the text (Fisher) defines it as, a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization whose members are corporate chief executives, university presidents, and labor leaders dedicated to setting an action agenda to drive U.S. economic competitiveness and leadership in global markets (Fisher, 2013, p. 197).

The Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST) Common Security Framework (CSF) was established as a security program to regulate and safeguard health information in the United States due to security and privacy issues that healthcare organizations encountered. Furthermore, in order for it to be more cohesive and collective, the CSF combines federal and state regulations, standards, and incorporates frameworks such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), International Organization for Standardization (ISO), Control Objectives for Information and related Technology (COBIT), Payment Card Industry (PCI), Digital Security Standard (DSS) and the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) Cloud Controls Matrix (Murphy, 2015; HITRUST Alliance, 2015a; HITRUST Alliance, 2015b; HITRUST, 2013). This was conceived into its security requirements and policies so that security risks could be evaluated and assessed within health organizations; and to institute and serve as a core baseline for these health organizations to be measured against. In addition, third-party vendors and business associates can employ the CSF to evaluate its products and its organization. As a result,
