Risk Management

Who should attend?

Any persons who may be involved in the risk management process including workers, managers, supervisors, members of safety committees and contractors within an organisation.

What will they learn?

The aim of the course is to provide participants with a basic understanding of the risk management process as required by legislation and relevant codes of practice. This course provides the skills and knowledge required to identify risks and to apply established risk management processes to a subset of an organisation or project's operations which are within the person's own work responsibilities and area of operation.


At the completion of the course participants will have an understanding of the Risk Management Process including being able to:

  • Explain the difference between the terms “hazard” and “risk”.
  • Analyse the organisational environment to identify the existing and potential hazards using an appropriate classification and analysis method.
  • Conduct risk assessments of identified hazards using appropriate risk assessment methodology.
  • Prioritise risks based on their level of risk.
  • Use the hierarchy of control to adequately manage exposure to the risk.
  • Select the appropriate control measure.
  • Understand the issues relating to implementation of appropriate control measures.
  • Understand the methods or review and monitoring of the overall process.

How will participants be assessed and what will they receive?

As part of the program, you will be required to compile risk reports, enter data into risk registers and consult with stakeholders with regards to risk controls and implementation.

You will need access to word processing programs and the internet to download files and upload assessment submissions. There is also a requirement to video your consultative processes, for you assessor to observe and assess.

At successful completion of the course participants will receive a nationally accredited Statement of Attainment - BSBOPS403 Apply business risk management processes.
