An organisation which presents an integrated picture of its business risks takes huge strides towards being truly in control. Riskonet’s integrated risk management is based on a broad vision of risks, asset-related and otherwise giving you a better overview, more insight and ultimately, a better result.
An integrated safety policy calls for a good overview and insight into the bigger picture of risks and the associated measures. When assessing, covering and insuring risks, too many decision-makers focus on complying with legislation and regulations (compliance) and/or the requirements of the insurer only. It is important to develop your own vision in the area of risks and safety, as well as for investments and the manner and level of insurance. This will prevent other parties from over influencing your policy, dictating how and for how much you insure. Having a mature vision when it comes to safety and risks lets you make your own choices and to be and stay “in the lead”.
If you don’t have an overview, insight or vision, you will be vulnerable to the consequences of unexpected risks - thus open to major damage. Sometimes, the measures taken can be ineffective, or responsibilities can lack the required clarity. Furthermore, investments made in safety can range from over-the-top to inadequate, meaning you can seriously be over- or under-insured. In a nutshell; if you don’t have a balanced and integrated safety policy, you are putting your business-critical processes and activities at risk – possibly threatening your organisation’s continuity in the process.
What does Riskonet offer?
Riskonet offers you a complete overview in both breadth and depth. Our risk professionals can validate corporate policy at location level, they can establish links between various risk-related departments in the organisation, such as “environment, health and safety” (EHS), insurance, security and the supply chain. Importantly, Riskonet can link your strategic and operational objectives to risk management.
A broad perspective of the organisation and its risks
At Riskonet we like to base our advice on a broad perspective of the organisation and the risks its assets will be exposed to in the event of a calamity. This could include a fire, a flood, a natural disaster, the bankruptcy of a supplier and many other potential disasters. Our experts also take other operational risks into account, such as business losses and liabilities. Do you, for example, have reason to believe that a complete overview might be lacking in your organisation and have all the right responsibilities been assumed in the right places?
In addition to offering insight and overview, our risk professionals also provide organisational advice on which you can develop your own vision on risks and safety. This lets you define your own policy, which ultimately leads to sound risk-management choices.
To complement our advisory services, we can assist you set up and optimise the position of risk and insurance manager. Depending on your requirements, this is a role we can play in your organisation, either on an interim or part-time basis.
