Risk Management - Do We Really Need it in Shipping Industry?
1 Dorchester Atlantic-Marine Limited, Isle of Man, Douglas, United Kingdom
ABSTRACT: A risk management is an important step in protecting workers and business, as well as complying with the law. It helps you focus on the risks that really matter in workplace - the ones with the potential to cause real harm. In many instances, straightforward measures can readily control risks, for example ensuring spillages are cleaned up promptly so people do not slip, or cupboard drawers are kept closed to ensure people do not trip. For most, that means simple, cheap and effective measures to ensure most valuable asset - workforce - is protected. The law does not expect to eliminate all risk, but Companies are required to protect people as far as ?reasonably practicable?.
