RISK AEESEEMENT
(RISK ANALYSIS)

All the previous identified risks has impact on the Project
output either by reduce the output quality,increase the output time needed; orincrease
theoutput Costs.

The following table describes the impact of each risk on time,
cost and quality of the project.

Risk Evaluation

The objective here is
to communicate the “expected impact” that will happen if no proactive
mitigation plan is implemented in the project.

The risk rating is determined by assessing:

 • The likelihood of an
incident occurring as the result of the risk, and

 • The potential
consequences of the incident

Expected Value (EV) = Likelihood x Consequence

By referencing these two factors in the tables below, we will be
able to determine whether the risk presents a high, significant, moderate or
low risk. Issues should be addressed in accordance with their risk rating, with
high priority issues requiring immediate attention.

RISK MITIGATION

Mitigation
of risks involves the identification of actions to reduce the likelihood that a
threat will occur (preventative action) and/or reduce the impact of a threat
that does occur (contingency action). 
This strategy also involves identifying the stage of the project when
the action should be undertaken, either prior to the start of or during the
project.

·        
Preventative
– This type of strategy answers the question: “what should you do now?” This
strategy is designed in a manner so as to reduce the likelihood of the risk or
seriousness of the risk way before the risk is even realized.

·        
Contingency
– These are planned actions in the event of the risk being realized. In short,
it answers the question: “what should be done if…?”

The
risks that are at the highest priority will need to be attended to first by the
project manager and their mitigation plans need to be realized before the
project starts, or as per the action plan. The risks with a lower priority can
be taken care of later, but cannot be ignored or neglected.

Insurance alone is not a failsafe
method of managing gym and the owner or operator has a legal responsibility to
ensure the safety of all people that use or access the facility. While there is
no one means of ensuring that any gym or business is fully protected, a number
of key areas should be considered and measures employed to reduce risk, such as:

• Utilising appropriate equipment
and maintenance practices

• Adhering to industry standards

• Employing appropriately
qualified staff

 • Inducting and/or supervising users

• Taking out an insurance policy

• Establishing legal agreements
and relationships.

 • Training and protecting gym users, staff

• Having
a person or committee that takes responsibility for reducing risks

 • Encouraging users and staff to be proactive
in promoting a safe environment in the gym

 • Implementing systems to support risk
management practices (e.g. Reporting hazards, incident reports, emergency
evacuation plan)

 • Ensuring all users complete the physical
activity readiness questionnaire and a risk assessment statement when joining
the gym. Gym staff should review these documents and ensure any concerns are
addressed with the relevant gym user and health professionals prior to
commencing use of the gym

 • Establishing and documenting gym policies
and procedures so that all who use the gym have access to them either at the
gym or online

 • Creating and documenting a safety checklist
and a signage checklist for the gym including a signed maintenance log for each
piece of equipment.

 

 

Grade

Possible Action

A

Mitigation actions, to reduce the likelihood and seriousness,
to be identified and implemented as soon as the project commences as a
priority.

B

Mitigation actions, to reduce the likelihood and seriousness,
to be identified and appropriate actions implemented during project
execution.

C

Mitigation actions, to reduce the likelihood and seriousness,
to be identified and costed for possible action if funds permit.

D

To be noted; no action is needed unless grading increases over
time.

N

To be noted; no action is needed unless grading increases over
time.
