The risk approach is the main theme of all management system standards in accordance with Annex SL; Therefore, the use of ISO 31000 in these processes is essential.
ISO 31000 is a risk management standard that sets out guidelines and guidelines for implementing organizational risk management. The version of this standard is 2018 and provides a general reference method that can be compatible with any subject such as: quality, environment, occupational safety and health, anti-bribery, etc.
Risk management is present in all standards of the management system in accordance with the SL appendix, which makes the ISO 31000 method very important for companies that implement the management system in accordance with ISO standards.
ISO 31000 states that “risk management is repetitive and helps organizations develop strategies, achieve goals, and make decisions.” Only with this sentence can we see a clear alignment of risk management at the highest organizational level, ie strategic. This is because by effectively assessing risk, organizations can anticipate problems, trends, and impacts to make informed decisions.
The figure above shows the risk management process in accordance with the ISO 31000 standard, which can be applied to any subject and in any management system.
The risk assessment process is basically divided into three stages: risk identification, risk analysis and risk assessment.
In the image above, it is important to highlight the presence and support of risk management processes such as communication and consulting and critical monitoring and analysis. Communication and advice are essential in the risk management process; Because it is the stage where you collect the input information and send the output information, thus maintaining a dynamic process.
Critical monitoring and analysis of risk management is an integral part of a continuous system, there is no point in the process of static risk management without feedback, but must be analyzed at scheduled intervals or in cases of important events.
The importance of ISO 31000 is emphasized for all management system standards. Before implementing any management system, using ISO 31000 for risk management has many advantages and will be much more efficient.
