4.   OBJECTIVES:

     The objectives of Council’s risk management action plan are to:
     a)       formalise and enhance existing risk management practices within Council;
     b)       demonstrate compliance with relevant legislation and regulatory requirements;
     c)       to integrate the management of risk across key Council functions and areas of
              responsibility;
     d)       raise the profile of risk management at all levels of Council, including elected
              members;
     e)       to reduce the cost of risk, including injury, cost of insurance premiums, damage
              and loss to Council and the community;
     f)       to develop and retain a risk register to facilitate the understanding of Council’s
              risks;
     g)       to demonstrate and promote good corporate governance;
     h)       to improve community confidence and trust;
     i)       to achieve a proactive rather than a reactive approach to risk management.

                    RISK MANAGEMENT ACTION PLAN

5.    RISK MANAGEMENT PROCESS

      The main elements of the risk management process are the following:

5.1   Establish the Context

      Establish the strategic, organizational and risk management context in which the rest of
      the process will take place. Criteria against which risk will be evaluated should be
      established and the structure of the analysis defined.

5.2   Identify Risks

      Identify what, why and how things can arise as the basis for further analysis.

5.3   Analyse Risks

      Determine the existing controls and analyse risks in terms of consequence and likelihood
      in the context of those controls. The analysis should consider the range of potential
      consequences and how likely those consequences are to occur. Consequence and
      likelihood may be combined to produce an estimated level of risk.

5.4   Evaluate Risks

      Compare estimated levels of risk against the pre-established criteria. This enables risks
      to be ranked so as to identify management priorities. If the levels of risk established are
      low, then risks may fall into an acceptable category and treatment may not be required.

5.5   Treat Risks

      Accept and monitor low-priority risks. For other risks, develop and implement a specific
      management plan which includes consideration of funding and introduces strategies to
      ensure new risks are not introduced.

5.6   Monitor and Review

      Monitor and review the performance of the risk management system and changes which
      might affect the performance.

5.7   Communicate and Consult

      Communicate and consult with internal and external stakeholders as appropriate at each
      stage of the risk management process and concerning the process as a whole.

      mitigation strategies.

6.4   Directors

      Facilitating and resourcing to enable their Departments compliance with Risk
      Management Action Plan, measuring performance of staff against strategies in MOSPLAN
      and KPI’s in individual work plans.

6.5   Managers and Supervisors

      Managers and Supervisors are responsible for the implementation of the Risk

9.    REVIEW STRUCTURE

      This policy shall be reviewed annually to ensure that it meets the requirements of
      legislation and the needs of Council.

      The respective risk assessments will be reviewed in accordance with scheduled review
      identified for each assessment. This review will vary from six months to a maximum of 3
      years depending on the level of risk.

      Unplanned reviews may be triggered by incident, new technology, legislation/regulation
      changes, and variation in resources or community use/demand.

      All reviews will take into account hazard and incident reports, complaints and any other
      information affecting the risk.
