Product Description:

Provides advice on assessing and managing risks for those employed to take risks with or on behalf of other people. This book explores issues of risk assessment and management that provides readers with a broad knowledge of risk practices that can be applied across a range of disciplines.

Review:

The style of writing and presentation of complex concepts is a useful model for analysing, monitoring and evaluating any organisation which provides a public service. There are very useful sections on an appendix of shared vocabulary, references, subject index, author index and an index of case law examples used. I would recommend the book for managers of organisations engaged in public service. It may also be useful for anyone involved in working in child protection and requiring a CRB check for their work and also EPs engaged in specialist work such as expert witness, CAMHs and YOT. --Debate

This book is written in clear language throughout, easily accesible to various professionals or beginning professionals in a range of work situations... I found it not only thought-provoking and enlightening, but also an enjoyable read --SWAP E-bulletin

The authors fully achieve their aims of targeting the professionals making decisions about other people, and suggesting ways that decision makers ought to approach risk. Also practical tools and applied concepts offered, along with accessible straight forward style of writing offers those new to risk decisions the confidence to embrace their work, and those old hands a timely refresher. --Prison Service Journal
