PDH UNITS: 3
Risk management is a business process that includes the identification, assessment, and prioritization of risks, followed by coordinated and economical application of resources to minimize, monitor, and control the probability and/or impact of unfortunate events to an acceptable level. The Owner uses an Activity Hazard Analysis (AHA) as part of a total risk management process. AHAs define the steps being performed within the activity, task or defined features of work (DFOW), and identify the work sequences, specific anticipated hazards, site conditions, equipment, materials, personnel and the control measures to be implemented.
