Essential Skills: Insolvency
Risk management

Taking control of a business as part of an insolvency appointment naturally exposes you to risks including physical hazards, financial loss and regulatory non-compliance.

This course will help you achieve a balanced approach to risk management when working on appointments. It provides insight into the key risk areas and provides a framework for identifying and managing risks.

Learning objectives

At the end of this course you will be able to:

  • Identify the key risk areas in an appointment, including:
    • physical risks and hazards – WHS, public safety and liability, plant and product safety, fire safety, food safety and environmental requirements
    • financial loss – asset protection
    • regulatory compliance – environmental, licensing, etc.
  • Implement a risk management framework to identify, assess, control and review risks.
  • Understand when to engage external parties to help identify and manage risks.
  • Explain the role of insurance.
