Risk Assessment and Management Online Certificate Course - Outline

Module One - Getting Started

Module Two - Identifying Hazards and Risks

Every organization has its share of hazards and risks. Identifying risks and hazards is necessary for risk management. Hazards and risks are often interchanged with each other. In this module, we will determine the difference between a hazard and a risk.

What is a Hazard?

A hazard is anything that can cause harm and includes adverse health effects or loss to the organization or employee. Hazards include materials, substances, sources of energy, processes, practices, and conditions.

What is Risk?

A risk is not a hazard. It is the chance of harm coming from a hazard. An example of a risk would be prolonged exposure to chemicals in the work environment, which increases the risk for health problems.

Consult with Employees

Employees are the most valuable resource for hazards and risk information since they face these in the workplace every day. When communicating with employees, you must communicate clearly and honestly. It is also essential that you pay attention to everything they have to say.

Likelihood Scale

The likelihood scale is used to determine the probability that an event will occur. After identifying the risks, you will then score them on a scale of 0 to 3.

  • 0 – Impossible
  • 1 – Low possibility/Remote possibility
  • 2 – Medium possibility/Possible
  • 3 – High possibility/ Probable

Module Three – Seeking Out Problems before they Happen (Part 1)

Risk management is performed to identify problems before they happen. This is done to prevent accidents and emergencies, or at least prepare you for an emergency when it occurs.

Unique to Your Business

Each business has its own unique set of problems. A manufacturing company, for example, will have a different set of risks from a pharmaceutical company.

Walk Around

To identify potential risks and hazards requires close inspection of the target area. In order not to miss out on any potential risks, you must conduct a physical inspection by walking around and making a note of everything.

Long Term and Short Term

When identifying potential problems, be sure to keep in mind the long and short term implications. Short term problems require immediate attention. But this should not overshadow long term problems. For example, noise pollution may not cause immediate health problems but can be a concern when employees are exposed to it long term.

Common Issues

While every organization has its own unique risks and hazards, there are common issues that most organizations share. Many of these common issues include:

  • Slip and fall areas
  • Clutter
  • Extension cords
  • Falling objects
  • Indoor pollutant

Module Four - Seeking Out Problems before They Happen (Part 2)

Problems can occur at any time, and risk management is designed to prepare you before it happens. You must also be on the lookout for risks posed by external events and preparing for the worst.

Levels of Impact

This refers to the priority of how risks and hazards should be addressed. It is divided into three categories: Low impact, Medium impact, and High impact.

External Events

Predicting problems is always difficult, no matter how prepared you are. This is especially true for problems that are attributed to external events.

Worst Case Scenarios

Risk management includes preparing for worst-case scenarios. To determine a worst-case scenario, all you need to do is ask, "What is the worst that could happen?"

Consequence Scale

The next step is to understand the severity of the consequences. The consequence scale is used to categorize the severity and outcome of each risk.

Module Five – Everyone’s Responsibility

Managing risks is a shared responsibility. Everybody is responsible for the safety of the business environment. Everybody in the organization must be aware of all the risks and potential problems.

See it, Report it!

When everyone shares responsibility for keeping the workplace safe, it makes it easier for everybody to report any potential problems. A system should be in place to make reporting problems simple. Reporting should also be encouraged to report any potential risks and problems.

If it’s Not Safe, Don’t Do It

Safety is a primary concern for the organization. Even the most effective safety standards and risk management programs are only as good as the people who practice them.

Take Appropriate Precautions

After identifying the risks and problems, it is now time to take the appropriate precautions. It will be largely based on the organization. Precautions will be based on the risks and problems unique to the organization.

Communicating to the Organization

To keep the workplace safe, the organization must communicate all safety guidelines to all employees. When developing a communication strategy, follow these tips:

  • Identify the information you need to communicate
  • Consider the audience
  • Create the communication
  • Choose communication methods

Module Six – Tracking and Updating Control Measures

Control measures are essential to risk management. By tracking control measures, you can update them as necessary. Constantly updating your control measures ensures that your work environment remains safe for everyone.

What is a Control Measure?

Most organizations have control measures in place. These safety protocols place to regulate activities to prevent risks.

Your Business Procedures

Every business has different needs. The nature of your business basically dictates how you go about developing your business procedures and control measures.

Are They Adequate?

Control measures and procedures change as the organization does. Safety policies must constantly be updated regularly. This is to ensure that control measures and procedures are adequate to the current working environment.

Updating and Maintaining

It is important to update control measures as necessary and maintain these once it is established. Evaluating makes it possible for you to make the necessary changes. If control measures and procedures are not maintained, it would not be possible to determine if these are effective.

Module Seven – Risk Management Techniques

Once risks have been assessed, these must be managed carefully. Organizations use four basic risk management techniques. The type of risk management technique used is based on the severity of the risk and the current stability of the organization.

Reduce the Risk

Risk reduction is a common practice in business. Eliminating risk in the workplace can be impossible, and by using risk reduction, you are able to minimize the severity of the risk.

Transfer the Risk

The act of transferring risk is also referred to as risk-sharing. Organizations who have a business arrangement with other companies for manufacturing pieces or entire products are transferring their risks. The most common strategy used when transferring risk is insurance.

Avoid the Risk

Avoiding risk can be difficult. However, the purpose of avoiding risk is to eliminate it or simply not engage. Before deciding, it is important to consider the risks and rewards a new situation brings.

Accept the Risk

There will be times when the rewards are worth the risks. Another form of risk acceptance is refusing insurance to reduce overhead costs. When this happens, an organization must be ready to accept the consequences of their action.

Module Eight – General Office Safety and Reporting

It is often easy to overlook the importance of safety in the workplace. Surprisingly, a large number of accidents occur in a seemingly safe office environment. In this module, we will discuss how to prevent accidents in the office and how to prepare for accidents. Planning and reporting are essential to risk management, and preparation helps in creating a safe working environment.

Accident Reports

Accidents need to be reported immediately. All accidents must be reported within 24 hours, even of the person involved does not believe they are injured. Accident reports must follow local guidelines to ensure that important information about the incident is collected.

Accident Response Plans

Accident Response Plans

Accident response plans are designed to prevent accidents from happening again. The information contained in the accident report is used to improve safety in the working environment.

Emergency Acton Plan

Emergency action plans are a must for any office building. These plans provide guidance in cases of emergencies such as a fire or major machine malfunction. An emergency action plan includes:

  • Procedures to report an emergency
  • Evacuation procedures
  • Critical employee procedures
  • Accounting for employees after evacuation
  • Rescue and medical procedures
  • Title of the employee who informs others of their duties in the plan

Training and Education

Every person in the organization must be informed about all possible risks and hazards in the workplace. Safety guidelines should also include training employees to avoid these hazards. Typical safety topics include:

  • Electrical safety
  • Housekeeping
  • Falls
  • Awareness
  • Ergonomics
  • Fire Safety

Module Nine – Business Impact Analysis

In this part of the Risk Assessment and Management Online course, we will calculate the impact of potential disruptions and determine what is required for a company to recover. Risk assessment is involved with identifying potential losses and severe risks an organization can encounter. By combining the information on the risk assessment and business analysis, it will enable you to prepare for any risk and overcome its impact on the organization.

  • Gather information
  • Identify vulnerabilities
  • Analyze information
  • Implement recommendations

There will be times when the rewards are worth the risks. Another form of risk acceptance is refusing insurance to reduce overhead costs. When this happens, an organization must be ready to accept the consequences of their action.

Module Eight – General Office Safety and Reporting

It is often easy to overlook the importance of safety in the workplace. Surprisingly, a large number of accidents occur in a seemingly safe office environment. In this module, we will discuss how to prevent accidents in the office and how to prepare for accidents. Planning and reporting are essential to risk management, and preparation helps in creating a safe working environment.

Accident Reports

Accidents need to be reported immediately. All accidents must be reported within 24 hours, even of the person involved does not believe they are injured. Accident reports must follow local guidelines to ensure that important information about the incident is collected.

Accident Response Plans

Accident Response Plans

Accident response plans are designed to prevent accidents from happening again. The information contained in the accident report is used to improve safety in the working environment.

Emergency Acton Plan

Emergency action plans are a must for any office building. These plans provide guidance in cases of emergencies such as a fire or major machine malfunction. An emergency action plan includes:

  • Procedures to report an emergency
  • Evacuation procedures
  • Critical employee procedures
  • Accounting for employees after evacuation
  • Rescue and medical procedures
  • Title of the employee who informs others of their duties in the plan

Training and Education

Every person in the organization must be informed about all possible risks and hazards in the workplace. Safety guidelines should also include training employees to avoid these hazards. Typical safety topics include:

  • Electrical safety
  • Housekeeping
  • Falls
  • Awareness
  • Ergonomics
  • Fire Safety

Module Nine – Business Impact Analysis

In this part of the Risk Assessment and Management Online course, we will calculate the impact of potential disruptions and determine what is required for a company to recover. Risk assessment is involved with identifying potential losses and severe risks an organization can encounter. By combining the information on the risk assessment and business analysis, it will enable you to prepare for any risk and overcome its impact on the organization.

  • Gather information
  • Identify vulnerabilities
  • Analyze information
  • Implement recommendations

Module Ten - Disaster Recovery Plan

All organizations require a disaster recovery plan. Disaster recovery plans outline all the procedures that need to be followed in case of a disaster to mitigate damages. These plans can be designed to answer different disasters, from natural to man-made disasters.

 

  • Make it before you need it
  • Test, update and repeat
  • Hot, warm and cold sites
  • Keep documentation simple and clear

Module Eleven - Summary of Risk Assessment

  • Who might be harmed?
