Many believe that this is the causation of many earthquakes that have occurred in the last years. Water contaminations are a possible risk of fracking. With all the chemicals used for oil fracking, it could cause harm the human body. Although it provides many jobs and gives us oil and natural gas, there are many factors of fracking that has harmed the environment. Oil fracking, also known as hydraulic fracking or hydrofracking, has been used for roughly 65 years to get natural gas.

The term ‘risk’ implies a possible negative or uncertain outcome of an event or situation caused by nature or human activities where insufficient knowledge was available to predict or prevent such outcomes. What is Risk Management? Risk Management is defined as the forecasting and evaluation of financial risks together with the identification of procedures to avoid or minimize their impact. (Anon., 2017) For my assignment I will be focusing on Deepwater Horizon which was a catastrophic event as a result of poor risk management in the organisation BP (British Petroleum). On the 20th of April 2010 an explosion on the Deepwater Horizon Macondo drill platform killed 11 people, 17 seriously injured and started the largest oil spill in the history

Further, the uncertainties in the global economic outlook coupled by uncertainties about natural calamities largely associated with the changing climatic patterns due to global warming such as tsunamis and unfavorable weather have been a big issue for Otto marine’s business in this recent past. Worsening economic performance has had great implications on the global order book for the last few years and this has in turn been impacting negatively Otto Marine’s business especially in regards to its shipyard, offshore chartering, geophysical and leasing segments (Hellenic Shipping, 2009). Following the increasing global financial and economic uncertainties chartered by events such as the 2008 financial crisis and the recent Euro crisis among others, there has been an unwarranted growth in the overcapacity of shipyards including an excessively huge supply of fleet than the market demand.

Research is a systematic investigation aimed at the discovery of answers to a problem (Burns, 2000).Research has been conducted for a number of reasons (Adams, Khan and Raeside, 2014). Bornmann (2012) states that researches have impacted on society both positively and negatively. Yet research contribute to science, it is difficult to measure contribution to society (Bornmann, 2012). For health and social care environment, research is a fundamental way of obtaining evidence for the purpose of solving health care problems and considering health issues (Polgar & Thomas, 2013) and discover new knowledge that could lead to changes to health treatments, politicise or care which could be more effective than existing way (NHS, 2017). In nursing discipline,
Nowadays, environmental degradation has become an important issue. This is because environmental degradation is one of the largest threats that is being looked at in the world today. This is because of the depletion of important resources such as air, water, and soil; the destruction of ecosystems; habitat destruction; the extinction of wildlife; and pollution. To limit the impact of these situations, it is important to know the possible side-effects of environmental degradation.
