Risk Management Assessment


What are Risks?

Risks can come from uncertainty in financial markets, project failures (at any phase in a project’s development, implementation or management), legal liabilities, credit arrangements, accidents, natural disasters as well as deliberate attacks from adversaries or events with uncertain root-causes.
Many projects may come with risks that could potentially threaten the health and safety of staff and personnel. Some of the potential risks to health and safety could include slip and trip hazards, damage to equipment and company property and potentially hazardous scenarios and situations that could put your workers or your project at risk.

What is risk assessment/management?

A risk assessment is a step in a risk management procedure that determines the quantitative or qualitative value of risks related to a concrete situation or a recognized threat or hazard.
Risk management is the more holistic process wherein risks are identified, assessed and prioritized. Risk management also involves deciding on the application of resources to minimize, monitor, and control risks. It also involves maximizing the opportunities for risk reduction and management.

Why is risk assessment/management important?

Risk assessment is an important part of project/business planning and strategy simply because every endeavour, great or small, contains risks in some way, shape or form. These risks can be as great as losing profit or customers or as small as short-term setbacks and failures. Reducing and/or managing these risks will increase the chances of a successful project or business venture.
