In recent years, the issue of risk has become an increasingly important one for managers and supervisors paralleling the growing awareness of public liability and consequent rise in litigation in the community at large.

Personal injury claims
Unfair dismissal claims
Law suits for breach of contract or negligence
Failure of phone and computer networks, and
A widely accepted definition of risk is “an uncertainty of outcomes.” These outcomes may be adverse or neutral in terms of the effects on the organisation. Further, risk refers “to the uncertainty that surrounds future events and outcomes.
Risk is unavoidable and is present in virtually every human situation. The highest levels of adverse risk exist in our day-to-day operations and in our increasing dependence on ever-changing technology (for example, networked computers, mobile phone transactions).
No previous knowledge of risk management is required for the workshop although some experience in the workforce (full-time, part-time, or casual) would be useful.
