AS/NZS ISO 31000 Risk Management
After 5 years of development, the Risk Management Standard, AS/NZS 4360:2004 has been superseded by AS/NZS ISO 31000:2009, Risk management - Principles and guidelines.
Risk management involves managing to achieve an appropriate balance between realising opportunities for gains while minimizing losses. It is an integral part of good management practice and an essential element of good corporate governance.
AS/NZS ISO 31000-2009 Risk Management – Principles and Guidelines replaces AS/NZS 4360-2004 Risk Management as the leading resource available to Australian directors, top level executives and others responsible for managing an organisation’s risks and achieving objectives. AS/NZS ISO 31000 is a direct adoption of the new International Standard, which is based significantly on the 2004 edition of the Australian/New Zealand Risk Management Standard.
Risk Management is an iterative process consisting of steps that, when undertaken in sequence, enable continuous improvement in decision-making and facilitate continuous improvement in performance.
Although the concept of risk is often interpreted in terms of hazards or negative impacts, this Standard is concerned with risk as exposure to the consequences of uncertainty, or potential deviations from what is planned or expected. The process described here applies to the management of both potential gains and potential losses.
Organisations that manage risk effectively and efficiently are more likely to achieve their objectives and do so at lower overall cost. What does your Safety Risk Management say about your Culture?
