What do you first think of when you think ‘risk’ in the workplace?

For me it usually feels like there’s some unwanted event around the corner combined with a smaller vision of potential opportunity to learn.

For me, it's sensing something is coming (like you said, around the corner) and using a lens of careful-mindfulness (as @yvonne7 alluded to in the main thread) - these "corners" could also be in the distance or smack you in the face quickly...

Risk comes from a number of aspects - strategic, financial, customer etc... its being careful and mindful, as to what is going on...always being prepared to step back and say that we can do better!!!

its an opportunity to learn, grow and develop- looking ahead to see the potential (both good and bad) and then taking a leap (steps forward to manage/minimise/maximise).

I agree with all the other comments! :slight_smile:


Michaela Kennedy Sun 18 Aug 2019 7:46AM

Agree with all of the above. The thing that get's to me most is risk of loosing reputation. I've very wary of this and get concerned often. Must do more work on Continuous Improvement........lol

Oh gosh, 'Risk in the Workplace' can mean so many different things! Physical risk (WHS), psychological risk and emotional risk (particularly when we are working with so many 'interesting' people, risk of Burnout and risk of internal processes not being ideal, risk to our Integrity and reputation as an Organisation.

Agree ditto to above


Lynn Lennon Mon 16 Sep 2019 7:41AM

I agree with Mic....reputational risk can be detrimental to us all. Let's say that Jason goes off the rails (quite possibly really lol) even though we're 100's of kms away the impact on us is very real. Despite the NDIS stating they don't have preferred providers we know they do, so any of us, at any time could affect the organisation and individuals.

Risk management to me in a past life was WHS and always something others didn't want to deal with. I was often the last one standing. It can break a person or an organisation if not monitored well.

NDIS quality monitoring system: Closed Wed 4 Dec 2019 11:04AM

To discuss Quality of Life domains data collection to blend with risk assessment and implementation plan that is required by NDIS for all participants plans. How can we make this compliance requirement more person centred, meaningful and relevant to the data we want to collect to give evidence of the good work we do?
