NOTE TO PRESENTER : In this slide and in every slide showing a basic RM step, a brief explanation of that step will be displayed to the right. This is the first step, Identify hazards . In this step units should be considering everything that could reasonably go wrong doing an operation. That is reasonably everything conceivable.
This step is more of art than a science. No matter how units assess risks, it must be based on probability and severity.
The Basic objective of this step is to either eliminate the hazard entirely or to reduce the risk to an acceptable level. This is a very busy step. In this step we develop and select controls for each hazard, determine the residual risk of each hazard, determine an overall mission risk, and finally make a decision.
The fourth step of the risk management process is to put the controls in place that eliminate the hazards or reduce their risk to a level we are willing to accept..
The last step of the Risk Management Process is to Supervise and Evaluate. This is to perform to, and enforce the standard. Remember, you are accountable for your actions - so be responsible. Every soldier is responsible for performing to standard and executing controls. Every soldier is responsible for recognizing unsafe acts or conditions and, depending on the situation and time requirements, making on-the-spot corrections and/or bringing it to the attention of the chain of command. Leaders and supervisors are also responsible for ensuring standards and controls are followed and enforced.
