Explain how risk assessment relate to rights and responsibilities

Every individual has right to be safe from harm and danger. Our responsibilities are to keep safe every individual from harm and danger. As a result, we carry out risk assessment to eliminate risk so that an individual can stay safe from harm and danger. Risk assessment involves identifying and eliminating risks. By eliminating risks, we keep individual safe from harm and danger which supports their rights. If an individual cause any harm due to not carrying out risk assessment where risk has been identified, then it can be a safeguarding issue, which is a subject to be investigated by regulators such as CQC or Local Safeguarding Authority. It is not only rights of every individual service user to be safe from harm and danger but also rights and responsibilities of social care workers and other users.
