Good Risk Management is all about informed decision making and it starts with you! It gives you, and your organization, the best chance of success in avoiding or mitigating unnecessary risk and deciding what is acceptable risk. At work and home, smart Risk Management serves as the foundation of our Air Force safety program and personal choices while off duty.

FOUR PRINCIPLES OF RISK MANAGEMENT

  • Accept no unnecessary risk
  • Make risk decisions at the appropriate level
  • Integrate risk management into operations, activities and planning at all levels
  • Apply the process cyclically and continuously

Risk Management is a decision making process and a way of looking at and evaluating challenges.
