This program has been developed for all employers and employees interested in conducting risk assessments within the context of operational risk management. In the context of business, “risk” is defined as the chance of loss or gain. However, in the context of the probability of occurrence of harm or suffering as viewed from the safety, health and environmental viewpoint, only negative risks are considered.
The workshop targets General Managers, SH&E Managers, Risk Managers, Loss Prevention Managers, Security Managers, S&HE Reps & Committee Members, Operating Staff and employees in general.

The workshop begins with the introduction of Risk Management and the AS/NZS 4360:2004 model and its supporting documentation as well as demonstrating the context of Risk Management.
