Eliminating all risk, if even possible, would be extremely difficult and very expensive.
A safe situation is one where risks of injury or property damage are low and manageable.
CPARS hosts a suite of web-enabled applications that are used to document contractor and grantee performance information that is required by Federal Regulations.
Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Part 42 identifies requirements for documenting contractor performance evaluations for systems, non-systems, architect-engineer, and construction acquisitions.
For example, home safety may indicate a building's ability to protect against external harm events (such as weather, home invasion, etc.), or may indicate that its internal installations (such as appliances, stairs, etc.) are safe (not dangerous or harmful) for its inhabitants.
Discussions of safety often include mention of related terms. With time the definitions between these two have often become interchanged, equated, and frequently appear juxtaposed in the same sentence.
The FAR also requires documenting additional contractor performance information in the Federal Awardee Performance & Integrity Information System (FAPIIS), including Terminations for Cause or Default (FAR Part 42), Defective Cost or Pricing Data (FAR Part 42), Information on Trafficking in Persons (FAR Part 22), Determinations of Non-Responsibility (FAR Part 9), Subcontractor Payment Issues (FAR Part 42), Administrative Agreements (FAR Part 9), and Do D Determination of Contractor Fault (Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) Part 209) and to make the information available in the Past Performance Information Retrieval System (PPIRS).
Our vision is provide the tools to empower our community to break the cycle of domestic violence.
Substantive or objective safety occurs when the real-world safety history is favorable, whether or not standards are met.
Perceived or subjective safety refers to the users' level of comfort and perception of risk, without consideration of standards or safety history.
When seen as unique, as we intend here, each term will assume its rightful place in influencing and being influenced by the other.
Safety is the condition of a “steady state” of an organization or place doing what it is supposed to do.
