Introduction to Risk Management

The HSE recognises the importance of adopting a proactive approach to the management of risk to support both the achievement of objectives and compliance with governance requirements.

A key feature of managing risk in everyday practice relates to recognising the risks relating to the service you manage and having in place the systems and processes to reduce the risk of these occurring or if they do, to minimise their impact.

Whereas every member of staff is responsible for identifying risk within the context of their work, the management of risks a Line Management responsibility and as such must be embedded by Managers as part of everyday working at all levels in the organisation.

To support you in delivering on your commitments in relation to managing risk, the HSE's integrated Risk Management Policy and a number of guidance documents have been developed.
