risk management approach is relevant to both injury prevention and injury management. It is hard to focus on improving safety with work performance if you don’t actually know what demands are involved with the work performed and what risks are associated with these demands. A detailed analysis of job and task demands, as presented in an orgsnisations occupational/ job dictionary, allows adequate identification of risk exposures encompassing all relevant physical and psychosocial factors. Only then can effective risk management become a realistic and ongoing prospect for organisations. (Ref: AS/NZS ISO 31000 2009) Successful risk management culminates in the implementation of solutions or risk controls for identified problems, based on ergonomic principles, including job and task design or redesign.
