Avid Online Guide: Risk Management

Risk Management


Identifying, assessing and managing risks that your operation poses is the central aim of the health and safety system. It is also a legal requirement to provide a safe working environment by managing these risks.

Without an effective risk management process, you can be focusing your efforts and resources on the wrong issues and leaving your organisation exposed.

It is crucial for your organisation to work through the risk management process and tailor the system to meet your needs. All our forms may not be needed for every business and you need to tailor the forms to be specific to your organisation.

Avid Online has a Risk Management document pack that will assist you to manage your organisation’s risks. This pack contains:

Steps to follow:

The forms will assist you in monitoring controls that have being put in place

Review the Risk Register at least annually to ensure it is accurate and the controls in place are effective. Critical risks are to be reviewed more frequently e.g. at each Health and Safety Committee meeting
