Risk management for events

Successful events manage risk rather than avoid it. Effective risk management minimises potential negative outcomes, costs and liabilities and leads to safer, more successful and enjoyable events.



The resource details seven steps to effective risk management of events.

  1. Establish the context
  2. Identify the risks
  3. Analyse the risks
  4. Evaluate the risk
  5. Treat the risk
  6. Communicate and consult
  7. Monitor and review the risk
