Risk Mitigation.  What is it?

At Plexability Chicago, we assist with Risk Mitigation in our "New Normal".  Depending on your Risk Mitigation strategy, this can consist of four or a five-step process.  Let's take a look at a five-step Risk Mitigation outline. Identifying risk is an important first step. It is not sufficient though. Taking steps to deal with risk is an essential step. Knowing about and thinking about risk is not the same as doing something about risk.  The risk will happen. Some good, some bad. Some minor, some major. Your ability to mitigate risk allows you to proactively acknowledge and accommodate risks. Let’s talk about four different strategies to mitigate risk: avoid, accept, reduce/control, or transfer.

1. Assume and Accept the Risk

The acceptance strategy can involve collaboration between team members to identify the possible risks and whether the consequences of the identified risks are acceptable. In addition to identifying risks and related consequences, team members may also identify and assume the possible vulnerabilities that risk presents. This strategy is commonly used for identifying and understanding the risks and the purpose of this strategy helps bring these risks to the business’ attention so everyone working has a shared understanding of the risks and consequences involved.

2. Avoidance of the Risk

The avoidance strategy presents the accepted and assumed risks and consequences of a situation or project, and presents opportunities or potential solutions for avoiding those accepted risks. Some methods of implementing the avoidance strategy are to plan for risk and then to take steps to avoid it.  In our particular case of an airborne pandemic, it is difficult to avoid as it is passed by human contact. 

3. Controlling Risk

This strategy works by taking into account the risks identified and accepted and then taking actions to reduce or eliminate the impacts of these risks. We do this with PPE, Social distancing, Masking, Washing hands, and implementing Engineering controls such as Plexiglass barriers when people are less than 6' apart and near each other.

4. Transference of Risk

Once controls such as company policy, procedures, PPE, Plexiglass Hygiene Shields, and Barriers are in place, the transference of the risk then transfers to employees and staff to comply with these procedures. In the case of a business dealing with the public, the transference moves to a gray area as the business can request compliance of customers to mitigate risk, however this is relying on the complete participation of the public to help mitigate the risk.

5. Watch and Monitor Risk

Monitoring your business for risks and consequences involves watching for and identifying any changes that can affect the impact of the risk.  It may require additional workplace controls such as more frequent deep cleanings, additional PPE, or adding PPB (Personal Protective Barriers) such as plexiglass shields.
