Risk Management

Whenever you are putting on any event you need to be aware of possible risks and outcomes, and take steps to control their consequences.

Risk management involves identifying risks and then working to minimise or manage them. By helping you identify and subsequently analyse risks, this tool provides you with greater insights into risks and their consequences.

The main elements of the risk management process

This graph illustrates the process of assessing risks in terms of your events. Use it in connection with the other information in this tool as a basis for preapring contingencies for your event.

Best practice is to analyse the risks as if there are no controls already in place. In other words, don't ignore a risk because you have some safeguards already in place.
