Risk management refers to the practice of identifying potential risks in advance, analyzing them and taking precautionary steps to reduce the risk curbe.
Risk management is the term applied to a logical and systematic method of establishing the context, identifying, analysing, evaluating, treating, monitoring and communicating risks associated with any activity, function or process in a way that will enable organisations to minimise losses and maximize opportunities.
Risk management identifies, evaluates, and prioritises risks (defined in ISO 31000 as the effect of uncertainty on objectives) followed by coordinated and economical application of resources to minimise, monitor, and control the probability or impact of unfortunate events to maximise the realisation of opportunities.
Risk management is the process of identifying, measuring and treating property, liability, income, and personnel exposures to loss. The ultimate goal of risk management is the preservation of the physical and human assets of the organization for the successful continuation of its operations.
The five basic risk management principles of risk identification, risk analysis, risk control, risk financing and claims management can be applied to most any situation or problem. One doesn't realize that these principles are actually applied in daily life over and over until examples are brought to light.
