What is this article about?

Risk management is the process of identifying, assessing and controlling risks. It should be a proactive, planned and systematic process that addresses all potential hazards and risks in the workplace. Risk assessment is not a once-off task; it should be an ongoing process that responds to changes in the workplace and allows for continuous improvement. It should also be performed before undertaking any hazardous work activities. Providers of National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) services must ensure that a risk management system is in place in order to protect NDIS participants, workers, the general public and the organisation itself from harm.
