Recognize and Identify Risk in the Workplace

Key Points

  • Risk comes in all forms and can greatly hinder or help employers. Being able to recognize risk is the first step towards stopping accidents and catastrophes before they happen.
  • Even small, seemingly insignificant risks should be identified and prepared for because small risks, which happen frequently, can cause extensive problems over time.
  • A risk management plan should encompass every aspect of business operations because risk is everywhere.
  • Workplace risk continually evolves and changes, and it is therefore critical to have systems to identify new or changed risks.
