Managing Risk For Success

We regard risk management as the essential strategy to determine those risks that may materially impact upon business plans or organisational objectives. Whether categorised as Threats or Opportunities. By adopting a systematic approach to making a realistic evaluation of the true level of risks to your business and the design, development and successful implementation of an effective system, those risks can be adequately controlled.

Where does “risk” exist?

Fatigue, engineering design, procurement, contractor management, community impact, plant and equipment … all have the intrinsic potential to create risk, to introduce a level of uncertainty that can hinder the well-being of your staff and your business.

It’s our Core Business Focus

Fortunately, our risk management capability works systemically to identify and select the most effective and appropriate controls for you. No matter whether you strive for good business practices or are focussed on meeting legislative compliance, we can facilitate a program that will enable you to effectively plan, do, check and act to mitigate the likelihood of potential threat and capitalise on the benefits of opportunity.

In fact, every step of the way you can benefit from a breadth of expertise and guidance that will ensure your system development, procedural documentation (including policies) and training is of the highest standards.

We do this by providing comprehensive risk management services that include the facilitation of risk workshops and the optimisation of risk management systems that will demonstrate corporate diligence in meeting legislative obligations.

Capability to Match

Our capability for the provision of training relevant to risk management practices and techniques covers all levels of organisational requirement. From baseline training for new employees, to legislative compliance for statutory positions, to discrete subject matter content such as HAZOP / SIL analysis or other applications.

Our Audit, Monitor and Review capability will assist clients to achieve key strategic and operational objectives by determining the effectiveness of their people, processes and systems.

Through the facilitation of audit programs and applied risk management, we can help you to effectively identify opportunities and manage critical risk before it impacts your organisation or business process.

Instead, you can learn how to plan for foreseeable eventualities and implement a system to identify and control those factors that will keep your business on top.

By Design

The design of a robust and effective Safety and Health Management System requires the alignment of the business strategy and operational processes as a means to protect and benefit the people that work within the boundaries, or are impacted by that “system”. ASTRA ensures that the management system is both practical and enables compliance to industry, state, national or international standards or legislation with the objective of:

  1. The prevention or mitigation of events and actions that may otherwise have resulted in loss or harm to people, property or the environment; and

  2. Improving organisational performance through the effective management of core business activities.

Our capability reflects our experience in “systems” development that meet key criteria determined in a range of Australian and international standards that include:

  • AS/NZS ISO 3100 Risk management
  • AS/NZS ISO 14001 Environmental management systems
