Risk Management is important to the success of any business. Risk management is designed to reduce or eliminate the risk from events that can have an impact on business.
Risk management identifies, assesses, and prioritizes the different types of risk a business may encounter. These risks include; injuries, fires, tornadoes, security, data storage, credit risks, and lawsuits.
To prevent risk, risk managers create a plan to minimize or eliminate the impact of negative events. Many strategies are available to minimize or eliminate these risks, but depend on the type of risk and the type of business. At the Institute for Workforce Innovation, we can help you minimize and eliminate those risks. One way is through courses offered by the OSHA Training Institute Education Center and our new courses in Risk Management and Environmental Management.
