Presented by Mark Alston
Traditional risk assessments are used by organisations to justify decisions already made and to ratify controls that are already in place. Risk assessments can become a ‘cut & paste’ exercise with little or no innovation discovered. Controls remain predominately focused on ‘Safety Work’ rather than the ‘Safety of Work’.
Utilising a Learning Teams approach to risk assessments, allows a facilitator to explore the work as normal, focus on assessing genuine risks and enable an environment that encourages a risk assessment team to innovate. This approach can be easily incorporated into organisations existing risk assessment processes.
