Institute of Risk Management

Businesses must not only have ‘risk management’ – they must have risk management that works. Too often, when things go wrong it’s the same story.

On paper the business appears to have the right processes but they are applied by complicated and fallible human beings who may not always behave the way they are expected to in relation to risk. In the case of occupational health management, with sometimes ‘invisible’ risks, or long latency conditions, this couldn’t be more relevant.

IOSH’s campaign on occupational cancer encourages companies to develop plans to deal with carcinogenic exposures but, importantly, also encourages and supports practical, evidence-based action that follows that plan.
