I have been involved with workplace and process risk management for over 30 years and I have always found the subject fascinating and rewarding. However, I am still surprised at the lack of deep understanding within Organisations about risk management.
Regardless of Organisation size, many see it as just “managing risks” because it’s easier to explain and perhaps reactionary since it has the word “management”.
Risk management is more than just “managing risks”. Successful risk management requires a holistic approach based upon Elements that make up a Risk Management Framework.
Let’s pretend you are my Client and I’ve asked you these 7 questions:
1.Do you know the relationship between attitude and risk management?
2.Do you know how to control workplace and process risks?
3.Do you know the difference between hazard identification and risk assessment?
4.Do you know what or who is a risk owner?
5.Do you know what you are measuring for successful risk management?
6.Do you know what or when you are monitoring for risk management?
7.Do you know what to do when reviewing risk management?
Did you answer “YES” to all of them? If you did, you don’t need this book.
If you had even just one “NO” as an answer, this book is worth reading.
This is a reference book and not a novel. In this book, risk management is focused on workplace and process related risks. The approach and techniques can be applied for risk management generally.
My goal is to share valuable lessons learnt and my experience of getting risk management successfully embedded within your Organisation. My intended audiences are risk and safety management practitioners, trainers, managers, leaders in organisations and anyone interested in successfully managing risks.
Unfortunately, a book of this size can’t cover all the different ways of planning and delivering risk management. However, it can provide you with a stepping-stone for further exploration and development.
