Risk Management Consultant Brisbane

Our Brisbane Risk Management Consultants make risk management easy

Risk management doesn’t have to be complex. At BusinessBasics we provide intelligent risk management solutions that help your business stay compliant without the headache. Spend less time chasing up documents and more time maximising the safety, productivity and profitability of your business. 

Risk management plans are an essential part of any sound business strategy. Although many businesses focus solely on Work Health and Safety (WHS), an effective risk management plan should account for all potential risk areas in your organisation. Risk planning should account for financial risk, market and competitive risk, operational risk and even specific product or initiative risk plans.

At BusinessBasics we can create detailed risk management plans tailored to your specific industry and your unique business. Our team of Brisbane risk management consultants has expertise and experience across a range of industries including retail, construction, health, defence, civil, mining and more. We’ll pair your business up with a risk management consultant who understands your sector and can deliver real value for your business.

What is risk management?

Risk management is the process of identifying potential risks to your company’s safety, resources and profitability and taking steps to minimise those risks. 

Good risk management goes beyond simply creating a risk management plan. Risk management is an ongoing process of identifying business risks and developing and implementing processes that minimise or eliminate those risks. An effective risk management system helps ensure staff safety while also protecting business resources.

A risk management plan is a documented account of the risks associated with your business. It will usually be completed at the beginning of a project or as part of a regular internal safety audit. It assesses the risks related to your business’s processes and recommends ways to mitigate those risks before they become a danger to staff and resources. 

There are four steps in the risk management planning process:

  1. Identify hazards
  2. Assess risks
  3. Control risks
  4. Review control measures

Risk management is a holistic way to approach the safety and security of your business. The risk management process accepts that risks are unavoidable in every workplace but works proactively to identify, assess and reduce the chance of those risks occurring. 

All businesses carry inherent risks, but there are ways to approach those risks in an informed manner that reduces the chance of those risks impacting your business. At BusinessBasics we offer risk management on a range of risk areas Brisbane businesses face including:

  • Safety risk management
  • Financial risk management
  • Business risk management
  • Environmental risk management

Why is risk management beneficial to my business?

A risk management strategy that focuses on safety, financial, business and environmental risk management can have far-reaching benefits for your business. Not only will it help your business reduce the risk of hazards impacting your business, it will also save you money, safeguard your resources and enhance your company’s public image. 

As a business owner, without risk management compliance your business is exposed. Risk management is the process of protecting your business, staff and assets against likely and unlikely future hazards.

Nothing is certain in life, and especially not in business. Putting in place strategic risk management processes ensures that you are as forewarned as possible about the potential hazards to your business’s safety and profitability. Plus, with ongoing optimisation of your risk management processes, you can continually improve your business.

Benefits of risk management

Not only does a risk management strategy protect your staff from physical and mental harm, it also ensures the profitability of your business by reducing downtime and costly payments. Financial risk management can help you foresee any potential risks to your business’s finances and help you prepare for damaging financial events. 

Organisations are expected to provide a safe environment for workers. Work Health and Safety (WHS) regulations often play an instrumental part in risk management as WHS governs the regulations behind what’s an acceptable workplace practice and what is not.

At BusinessBasics we’ll help you navigate all the responsibilities and requirements you as a business owner need to comply with. We’ll also go beyond compliance and show you how to make your business more profitable with risk management that makes your company more financially sound.

Mango HSEQ software and risk management

For a risk management system to be effective it needs to be so much more than a passive list of processes and procedures.

Mango’s risk management module provides an easy online process for employees to report risks. This paperless process eliminates the need for hard copies. Once risks are identified they’re then listed in risk registers which are available to all staff.

Mango streamlines your risk management process and stores all your documentation and processes in one easily accessible location. With Mango you can:

  • Easily control business risks
  • Integrate risk recording and assessment
  • Use client-defined rating systems
