Risk Assessment and Management Training

Program Description

This workshop provides participants with the knowledge and skills, and a consistent framework for making informed decisions on risks. The risk management process taught is based on the Q850 process developed by the Canadian Standards Association, involving seven steps: initiation, preliminary analysis, estimating risk, evaluation of the risk activity, controlling risk, taking action, and monitoring impact.


Depending on the detail required from the community this workshop can be anywhere from 1-3 days in duration.
