This TWO DAY course examines the creation of a risk assessment and management system, with reference to corporate governance requirements (e.g. Turnbull). The methods outlined can be consistently applied across many business areas, and they deliver easily understood information enabling senior management to understand and act on the risks of the business. Areas include financial, quality, environmental, health, safety, and information security risks. In-house courses can address other types of risk.

The course draws on the Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 4360:1999, which outlines a generic risk methodology.

The format of the course is a practical progress through the assessment and management methods, and there are many checklists and forms that the participants take away to use for their own in-house risk assessments. The methods give a consistent integration framework for standards such as ISO 9001/14001, OHSAS 18001/ILO, ISO 17799, TL 9000.

(This seminar is also valuable when run in-house to provide personnel with an overview of ISO 9001 as part of the overall implementation process. It also acts as a starting point for gaining everyone's involvement in the Quality Improvement process.)

Course Techniques

The course includes workshops, which build upon one another to give a complete methodology to assess various types of business risk.

The course can be easily tailored for in-house delivery, and is particularly valuable for organizations wishing to draw a few senior individuals together to discuss and focus on the key business management risks.
