Risk Management

It is necessary for the success of business to assess changes within the scope of work; these changes can also introduce new hazards and risks, which if not properly identified, assessed, and controlled can result in an incident. It is critical that all changes are adequately assessed to understand the impact on people, environment, processes, equipment, and facilities.  Hazard identification, risk assessment and change of management processes are pro-active approaches to dealing with concerns and issues that have the potential to create unplanned, unexpected, or undesirable consequences. Increased awareness and knowledge of risks and Hazards are essential to more effective business decisions and fewer incidents and are key components of due diligence.  Hazards can be identified, assessed, and mitigated by applying an effective change of management process.  The process can be a simple personal assessment, a team assessment in the field, or a formal group assessment.
