Safeguarding Environment

One of the major concerns mankind is facing today is of environment. environment is for all of us, from the tiniest to the old man. the air one breathes in, the water which quenches thirst, the soil below, the heat and fire to remain alive and kicking, the forest and vegetation he uses for food are all the basic necessities of life. with the ever increasing misuse of natural resources and growing pollution our environment is in a threatening shape today. keeping this view in mind, the indian law institute (ili) in the capital is organising a one-day workshop here on january 12, 2002 to disseminate the insight into what exactly we mean by environmental relief in cases of hazards. the pertinent questions which torment the common mind everyday but remain unanswered are: how the absolute liability of the polluter can best be ensured for the victims? how best the corpus of funds can be organised for the future man? how can we educate today's children to live with the available environment? after all, it is sustainable development we are looking for. the questions have become more relevant and future-oriented after the sad experience of the bhopal gas tragedy, thanks to our inefficiency and injudiciousness. to correct the future scenario, the process of dissemination has to be started from the beginning, feels the coordinator furqan ahmad, associate professor, ili. law as a rule of life must be learnt by all and environmental law is something one can not do away with today. for environment is the rule of life. until the awareness is germinated in the young , through the school children, the masses will continue to be the hapless preys of the unscrupulous…...

Environment

...ENVIRONMENT Environment means the surroundings. Land, water, air, plants, animals, solid wastes and other things that are surrounding us constitute our environment. Man and environment are closely intertwined with each other, to maintain a balance or equilibrium in nature. Different groups of people working in different areas express it in various ways. When physical scientists talk about environment they generally refer to the physical environment that comprises the three inter locking systems the Atmosphere, the Hydrosphere and the Lithosphere. Biologists often refer to biological environment consisting of all living organisms of the Biosphere. Similarly social scientists refer to the social, cultural, economic and organizational environment. Hence environment may be defined as "the sum of all social, cultural, economical, biological, physical and chemical factors surrounding the 'man' to give necessary protection to him." Two types of environment we may come across. One is the natural environment of the air, water, solid wastes, noise, radiation, soil, timber, wildlife and living space etc. The second one is the man-made environment that deals with work environment, housing, technology, aesthetics, transportation, utilities, settlement, urbanization and so on. These environmental components are considered as the resources and are mostly exploited and utilized by the men to fulfill their basic physical needs they can be considered as the fellow members of the global......

...I wouldn’t fully concentrate on the interaction, instead I would have been busy trying to get comfy in order to perform in the best way possible. In both, one to one and the group interaction the seating arrangements were outstanding, the chairs were soft because they had foam applied to them so they were extra comfortable. This made my posture excellent throughout the interactions and I didn’t get any pain in my lower back which made me more confident when it came to participating in both interactions. Temperature The room temperature was a little cold in my opinion. This made me and my other colleagues shiver throughout both interactions, my concentration levels were low because I was shivering and I had gesso bumps. Because the environment was cold, I had to wear extra clothing such as my coat whilst performing to stay warm, this made me look unprofessional, which would be a disadvantage in the both formal interactions. On the other hand, if the room temperature was too hot, then this could also make you feel uncomfortable because I would probably start sweating. Before I started both interactions I was nervous, so if the room temperature was hot then I would have felt insecure because sweating whilst performing makes individuals (especially me) feel less comfy and it lacks my confidence. This is why it was important in both interactions for the temperature to stay in between and not cold, this wouldn’t have made feel rushed or uncomfortable in front of everyone.......

11b - Safeguarding Adults and Promoting Independence P3

...Safeguarding Adults and Promoting Independence P3: Explain factors that may lead to abusive situations There are several factors that could potentially lead to abusive situations. Adults most at risk: There are certain groups of people who appear to be more vulnerable to, or at risk of abuse than others. A vulnerable adult is an individual aged 18or over who may receive community care services because of their disability, age or illness, or are unable to take care of themselves or protect themselves against significant harm or exploitation. This can also include older people and people suffering from dementia due to the fact that they are in a confused state. Because of their defencelessness and vulnerability older people are considerably more at risk to abuse. Other vulnerable adults include people who are susceptible to abuse because of physical difficulties, learning difficulties, or mental illness. Individuals with learning difficulties may be taken advantage of due to their lack of awareness. Individuals who are physically disabled may rely upon help and support from others during day-to-day activities. Due to this reliant lifestyle and dependability of care, they are more susceptible to abuse. Those who have mental health issues require a certain degree of care and support from social workers, psychiatrists, care workers and doctors; this dependability upon others increases the individual’s risk of being harmed and abused. Individuals in these groups tend to...

What Is Safeguarding

...What is safeguarding? Safeguarding is protecting vulnerable adults or children from abuse or neglect. It means making sure people are supported to get good access to health care and stay well. It is wrong if vulnerable people are not treated by professionals with the same respect as other patients. It is making sure that people are supported to have full and happy lives. It is making sure that people get safe and empowering care. Safeguarding should make sure that people get the support they need to make the most of their lives and get their full equal rights. Employers must still make sure they do not employ bad staff or volunteers to care for vulnerable adults and children. They should make sure that staff and volunteers have a Police Check before they are left to work alone with vulnerable adults and children. If an organisation has sacked or planned to sack a member of staff or volunteer who has left because they have harmed a child or vulnerable adult, they must tell the Independent Safeguarding Authority. A person who is or may be unable to take care of him or herself. A person who is unable to protect him or herself against serious harm or being taken advantage of. All organizations that work with or come into contact with children should have safeguarding policies and procedures to ensure that every child, regardless of their age, gender, religion or ethnicity, can be protected from harm. Setting up and following good safeguarding policies and procedures......

Safeguarding Children

...Unit 69 – Understand safeguarding of children and young people for those working in the adult sector (Level 5) Explain the policies, procedures and practices for safe working with children and young people. Policies and procedures are set in place to not only protect children and young people but also adults who work with them. It is vital that all professionals follow safe working practices to ensure that not only children are protected but also themselves. I have chosen to talk about in a childcare setting for this unit. An example is, if a disclosure is made by a child to a member of staff, it is vital that it is always taken seriously even if it is proven to be untrue or inaccurate. The child or young person should be listened to in a calm supportive manner which will allow them to talk freely and openly, it is also imperative that they are reassured about telling someone and how hard it must have been for them. Once the disclosure has been made and the child is calmed and secure, the employee or adult should inform the designated safeguarding officer, relevant notes should be written down in the child’s own words, including names that were mentioned, time and place of disclosure and place and background of the disclosure. In every setting there should be on display or on view a policy and procedure folder. This is there for everybody to look at and to show support of safe working. The policies and procedures are put in place to benefit staff, children,......

Safeguarding

...Specialist Community Public Health Nurse (SCPHN) in recognition of children suffering neglect. To begin a definition of safeguarding will be explored from a range of sources. This will be followed with the importance of policy and its impact on our direct practice as SCPHN’s. Finally key terms will be addressed as follows “children, neglect” Safeguarding is not a new concept though definition remains contrived (Fraser & Nolan, 2004) There is no mutually agreed definition, this makes the subject emotive and difficult to encompass, rather Powell (2007) perceives “safeguarding” as a umbrella term that encapsulates key themes including child protection, safe conduct, duty of care to act and collaborative working. This definition differs greatly from the Oxford Dictionary (2009 p324) definition “to protect (someone or something) from harm or destruction” This definition is rather vague, unclear and subjective, this presents further queries who has the final say on harm, is it the parent, the child or the Health Professional. Public policy with reference to safeguarding children is rapidly having been brought in to sharp focus with recent well publicised cases including Baby P and Victoria Climbie demanding a blame culture (Corby,2006) Said culture has propelled Health Professionals into acting and this is represented in the increase specialist safeguarding teams within local trust (Ward,2012) This recommendation derived from the Laming review (2003) and the Children act......

Competition in Markets and Its Safeguarding

...is only one major supplier and a lot of demand for the product he is supplying. For example there is only one big supplier of gas and the whole world has a need for this gas. Then the consumers do not have any power and the supplier has it all. In this particular situation the monopolist is no longer going to create innovative products (e. g. better fuel) and furthermore the prices will increase, because he can set the prices. The monopolist will no longer be interested in being competitive rather than in maximizing his profit due to minimizing the costs at which he is producing, resulting in a lack of quality. You can also observe that the total quantity of gas sold will be less than in a competitive environment, which is contra productive for the consumers. In an environment where there are lots of suppliers all of the above mentioned problems will not occur due to the competition. That is why the European Commission has a high interest in ensuring that there are competitive market situations everywhere. They want to create these conditions in punishing companies or states that are trying to create non-competitive market situations such as price-fixing cartels, market-share cartels or state-aid to specific companies. Their 3 major instruments are the antitrust, the merge control and the state-aid control. The antitrust area covers the two prohibition rules set out in the EU Treaty, which is first the prohibition of agreements between two or more firms that restrict......

Safeguarding Children Assignment

...The specialist skills of the Health Visitor are crucially important in safeguarding children (HM Government, 2010). In the past decade there has been significant change in nursing and healthcare that has led to a much wider remit for those involved in working with children and subsequently child protection (Hall and Elliman, 2006; Department of Health, 2004); indeed Health Visitors are responding to a national drive to further enhance their contribution to public health (Department of Health, 2009). It is against this backdrop that the critical need to develop the leadership role of the Specialist Community Public Health nurse within the process of recognising and referring child maltreatment emerges. This requires Team Managers to support staff to safeguard children, which highlights the need for effective clinical supervision, improved interagency working, and a change in organisational culture. Using a Case Study presented in Appendix One, consideration will be given to the significance of the role of the Specialist Community Public Health nurse in the recognition and referral of a child in need of protection. Consideration will also be given to the complexities of the recognition of abuse, and the barriers which may hinder the safeguarding process. For the purposes of this assignment the terms Specialist Community Public Health Nurse and Health Visitor will be used interchangeably. Elizabeth is clearly a ‘child in need’ as defined by Section......
