Training course; Task Based Risk Assessment
Task based risk assessment is a process that is used to identify and assess potential risks that may arise in the course of completing a specific task or project. It is a key component of task based risk management, which is a process used to identify, assess, prioritize, and manage risks that may impact the success of a task or project.
The purpose of task based risk assessment is to identify and evaluate potential risks that may arise in the course of completing a task or project, and to determine the likelihood and impact of each risk. This allows organizations or individuals to prioritize their efforts and focus on mitigating the most significant risks first.
There are various approaches and tools that can be used to conduct task based risk assessments, including:
- Brainstorming sessions: this involves bringing together a group of people to identify and discuss potential risks that may arise in the course of completing a task or project.
- Risk registers: a risk register is a document that lists potential risks identified during a risk assessment, along with information about the likelihood and impact of each risk.
- Risk matrices: a risk matrix is a tool that is used to assess the likelihood and impact of each identified risk. It allows organizations or individuals to determine the level of risk associated with each identified risk, and to prioritize their efforts accordingly.
Who is Task Based Risk Assessment for? It can be used in a wide range of industries and sectors, for example:
- Construction and engineering: identify and mitigate risks associated with construction and engineering projects, such as safety hazards, project delays, and cost overruns.
- Manufacturing: identify and mitigate risks associated with the manufacturing process, such as equipment failures, supply chain disruptions, and quality control issues.
- Healthcare: identify and mitigate risks associated with healthcare procedures, such as medical errors and patient safety incidents.
- Information technology: identify and mitigate risks associated with IT projects, such as data breaches, system failures, and security vulnerabilities.
- Financial services: identify and mitigate risks associated with financial transactions, such as fraud, regulatory violations, and market fluctuations.

- In most countries, employers are legally required to assess and manage risks in the workplace. By understanding these legal requirements, you can ensure that your organization is in compliance and avoid potential legal liabilities.
- In order to effectively assess and manage risks, you need to be able to identify the hazards that may be present in your workplace. This learning outcome will help you develop the skills and knowledge necessary to identify potential hazards and evaluate the risks they pose.
- Evaluate the levels of risk associated with each hazard. This learning outcome will help you understand how to use tools and techniques, such as risk matrices, to assess the likelihood and impact of each identified risk.
- The next step is to implement control measures to mitigate or eliminate those risks. This learning outcome will help you understand how to use the hierarchy of control to identify the most effective control measures for each identified risk.
- Once you have identified and assessed risks and implemented control measures, it is important to follow through with management action plans to ensure that the identified risks are effectively managed and controlled. This learning outcome will help you understand how to develop and implement effective management action plans.
- Understand how risk assessments relate to incident investigation and behavioral safety: In many organizations, risk assessments are closely linked to incident investigation and behavioral safety programs. This learning outcome will help you understand the connections between these processes and how they can be used together to create a safer workplace.
