The goal of this workshop is to offer a more complete understanding of the Risk Characterisation and Evaluation processes within a Risk Management System.
During the workshop participants will learn:
- How to identify hazards
- How to assess risks
- How to mitigate risks
- How to ensure controls remain effective
- Examples of the risk management process.
This workshop focuses on understanding risk characterisation and evaluation processes within a Risk Management System as part of the ‘Cleaning for Health’ curriculum. Through guided discussion and interactive exercises, students will be offered an introduction and review of risk and risk assessment in the context of ‘Cleaning for Health’ followed by a discussion of the process of risk characterisation. Risk evaluation and its importance within risk assessment and the acceptance of risk will also be covered.
This workshop is part of the ISSA Cleaning & Hygiene Expo, which will be held on 14-15 September 2022 at ICC Sydney. For more information about the Expo, visit https://issacleaninghygieneexpo.com/.
