This course is delivered in two full-day seminars. Each day includes workshops and independent learning activities.
This seminar examines the international standard for best practice in risk management (ISO 31000:2009) and how they are applied to manage disaster and disruption risk in an Australian setting. It addresses the:
The aim of this seminar is to demystify risk and risk analysis with clear examples and minimal jargon. Risk perception and how people think about risk will be key themes of the day.
The effective management of disasters begins well in advance of any event. Getting ready includes preventing and mitigating the risks to which the community is exposed, but it also involves organising the resources required, including the people and their capability. This is best achieved through the process of planning.
Disaster planning should be part of the normal preparedness of organisations and communities. It should address not only the routine risks but also the major non-routine risks that challenge the whole community.
The aim of this seminar is to detail the principles and practice of disaster planning, and examine the processes involved. This will highlight the value and importance of disaster planning.
