Risk Management Tools for Safety Professionals
23rd January 2019
The main focus of this book from the American Society of Safety Professionals is ISO 31000:2018, Risk management – Guidelines. We don’t hear a great deal about this international standard in the UK, but its key elements are setting the context, assessing risks (sub-divided into identification, analysis and evaluation) and risk treatment – all underpinned by a framework of communication and consultation, recording and reporting, and monitoring and review. The similarities with the UK approach greatly outweigh any differences.
