RISK MANAGEMENT 3-PHASE IMPLEMENTATION APPROACH
Agency Level (BOH and Senior Management)
PHASE 1 - Setting the Stage
This initial phase may take up to a year.
Suggested Leadership: A Senior Management Working Group would be expected to lead the activities in concert with the BOH throughout Phase 1. By the end of the phase the following should be in place: a risk management policy, overall process and plan, risk management framework and categories, and assigned resources with defined roles and responsibilities.
The following activities will often take place during the first phase of implementing risk management.
|Orientation to risk management. What it is and how it helps in governing and managing the organization. This work usually starts at the Board and/or Executive level.
Establish a vision for risk management for the public health unit, e.g., establish risk management culture, build organizational capacity and integrate into day-to-day work.
|Confirm the risk management framework and risk categories that will be used, e.g., Ontario Public Service (OPS) framework or others in use in public health units.
|Establish high-level risk management cycle and reporting timelines for the public health unit.
|Develop risk management policy for the public health unit.
