These Basic Assurances® look at the provision of safety measures put into action from the person’s perspective. The Basic Assurances® require policies and procedures, or ‘systems,’ while the effectiveness of the system is determined person by person. Meeting Basic Assurances® is a prerequisite for being in business in our field. These assurances are not statements of intent; rather, they are the essential, fundamental and non-negotiable requirements.
