WHS Risk Management

WHS Risk Management Training


Risk Management is the systematic process of identifying hazards, assessing the risks associated with those hazards, instituting control measures that will minimise or eliminate the risks, and review the control measures to confirm they are effective. WHS risks occur in many forms. The risks you face will depend on the nature and complexity of your business.

Effective WHS risk management is a critical part of enterprise wide performance management, and it is therefore essential that Companies embed risk management into everything they do.
