    Unmanaged Risk is a recipe for Business disaster.

    Risk Assessment and Management Training: Course Introduction

    Understanding, mitigating and managing risk is an essential part of business in our modern world.  While It is not possible to control and manage 100% of risk, knowing exactly how to prepare for it – before, during, and after an event will mitigate any harm. Making risk management part of your day to day business is essential to sustainable growth and ultimate business success.

    Safety should be the first priority as every business must face the reality of risks as well as hazards. By utilizing our Risk Assessment and Management Program your delegates will be aware of hazards as well as any “hidden” risks  around their particular workplace. Identifying hazards by utilizing proper procedures provides your delegates the skills to prevent accident before they occurs. Limiting as well as removing potential dangers by utilizing Risk Assessment will be an incredible investment.

    The purpose of risk assessment is to identify problems before they become hazards or risks. Enrol in a Risk Management Course (or Risk Management Training, Risk Management Courses South Africa, Risk Management Short Course or Risk Assessment Training)

    Risk Assessment and Management Training: Course Outline

    Welcome you to our Risk Assessment and Management workshop. we strongly advise participants of this workshop to attend the workshop on Safety In The Workplace. In this workshop the focus and objective will be on understanding hazards and risks and realizing where risks come from. If you have safety measures in place at your business – in writing, bring them along, we’ll show you how a risk plan is tailored to specific industries and we’ll give you the tools to update the safety measures at your company.

    The second object of the workshop is to identify risk management techniques and outline a disaster recovery plan. A hazard is any source of harm to people or property. A risk is the chance of harm coming from a hazard. It is important to consult with employees during safety inspections and when introducing new plans or methods or equipment which may be a health hazard.

    The purpose of risk assessment is to identify problems before they become hazards or risks.

    When all is said and done, there are four ways to address risks in the workplace:

    Reduce the risk.

    This could include sprinkler systems with fire alarms or a security system.

    Transfer the risk.

    This is also called risk sharing and is often done in business relationships.

    Avoid the risk.

    This is not always possible and by avoiding the risk, the business avoids opportunities. Sometimes it is necessary to take the risk, the cost of the risk should be smaller than insuring or avoiding the risk. There is a hierarchy system when it comes to controlling risks. There are six basic types of control measures to limit or prevent risks.

    Eliminate the risk.

    This is the most favourable solution. Substitute, trade for a lesser risk. Isolate, limit access to the risk. Engineered controls, designs to prevent access to risks and hazards. Administrative controls, safe work practices and procedures. Protective equipment, personal protective equipment worn around hazards. Accident reports must be filled in by the supervisor and the employee, even if no medical help is needed. A doctor’s note must accompany the accident report. Every office building should have an emergency plan and an evacuation plan in place. We end off this workshop by discussing the benefits of having a Disaster Recovery Plan in place and we summarise risk assessment allowing you to answer the important questions, such as are our current control measures sufficient?
