Effective risk management requires the follow principles:
Risk management is an integral part of all organisational activities.
b) Structured and comprehensive
A structured and comprehensive approach to risk management contributes to consistent and comparable results.
The risk management framework and process are customised and proportionate to the organisation’s external and internal context related to its objectives.
Appropriate and timely involvement of stakeholders enables their knowledge, views and perceptions to be considered. This results in improved awareness and informed risk management.
Risks can emerge, change or disappear as an organisation’s external and internal context changes. Risk management anticipates, detects, acknowledges and responds to those changes and events in an appropriate and timely manner.
f) Best available information
The inputs to risk management are based on historical and current information, as well as on future expectations. Risk management explicitly takes into account any limitations and uncertainties associated with such information and expectations. Information should be timely, clear and available to relevant stakeholders.
g) Human and cultural factors
Human behaviour and culture significantly influence all aspects of risk management at each level and stage.
h) Continual improvement
CFSP offer risk assessment services and can support your process to reduce risk.
CFSP advocates a 5 step approach to risk assessments:
In order to comply with the Regulatory requirements, it is necessary to complete a specific fire related risk assessment. The fire risk assessment takes into consideration all employees and any other persons who may be affected by a fire within the workplace and surrounding areas. The assessment must be documented when more than five people are employed in the workplace.
CFSP can carry out fire risk assessments checking that principles of prevention have been applied.
