Individuals are at greater risk of suicide or self-harm if there are convenient “ligature-risk points” in their surroundings. An appropriate level of ligature risk assessment is carried out for the safety of users and prevention of suicide. A risk assessment will ensure that appropriate advice and action is taken regarding the anti-ligature fixtures and fittings situated in the environment.
