Mitigating risk is something we all do everyday. From locking our front doors to wearing our seat belts, we do many things every day to avoid accidents of all kinds. We have mats to keep from falling in the tub, deadbolt locks on the door, and fenced in yards to keep the dogs in and other animals out. Our workplaces give us key cards or fobs to access our offices, provide protective personal equipment when required, adhere to Occupational Safety and Hazard Administration rules (OSHA), and take other steps to ensure the safety of employees and customers.
All of this is part of risk management; ways to lessen the chances of an accident occurring, and lessen resulting damage or injury if an accident does occur. Organizations have safety procedures, evacuation procedures, first aid kits, fire extinguishers and other procedures and equipment for just such situations.
