Risk Management – An Essential Guide

  • 5 CPD Hours Apex Building, Blackthorn Road Sandyford Business District D18 (map)

Risk is the main cause of uncertainty in any organisation, and it is important to be able to identify risks and manage them before they even affect the business. The ability to manage risk will help organisations act more confidently on future business decisions, and this knowledge will give them more informed options on how to handle potential problems.

This seminar will take you through the principles underpinning a successful Risk Management system and how to implement such a system. We will show you how to conduct a practical risk assessment, involving risk identification, analysis, evaluation and treatment.

This CPD certified course will provide an understanding of risk and risk management within the context of governance and will help enable attendees to identify its many benefits and objectives, as well as its role in quality decision making. This course will mainly focus on practical applications of the risk management ISO 31000 guidelines (widely applied in the private sector and is the international risk management standard recommended to all public sector organisations). All attendees will receive a full course pack to refer back to at any time and will gain 5 Structured CPD hours to add to their yearly requirements (if applicable).
