At Risk Resolve, we believe that an effective safety management system shouldn’t solely be measured by an absence of serious accidents, but rather by the observable presence of enhanced dialogue, interaction and collaboration between and across students, teachers, parents, administrators and external partner organisations. An optimal safety management system reflects deep curiosity, innovation, and regular reflection. Inbuilt into its DNA is a culture of constant and constructive questioning and learning.
To support our clients to achieve this, we apply contemporary approaches and methods to understand and improve safety and overall performance within our client’s work system. These methods and approaches are underpinned by the notion that safety and accidents are influenced by decisions and actions at all hierarchical levels of the school system, and not solely by the staff in the classroom, or on the excursion. This approach, known as systems thinking, also argues that accidents or safety are caused by multiple, contributing factors, and not just a single poor decision or action.
The methods we apply at Risk Resolve support the identification and management of the system-wide factors; the foreseeable risks, the cultural norms, and/or ways of working that may inhibit optimal safety outcomes whilst crucially, enabling you to achieve the desired educational outcomes associated with your activities.
An external perspective gives you and your school/organisation confidence that you are gaining an accurate and complete picture of your whole risk and safety management system.
We have supported schools, organisations, universities, regulators, and government agencies all over Australia, as well as North America, the Middle East, Europe and South East Asia since 2007.
