Influencing and Impacting Your Risk Culture 

Presenter: Fred Boelter, CIH, PE, BCEE, FAIHA, Principle – Health Sciences, RHP Risk Management, Inc., Boise, ID. 

Risk is an everyday and inherent aspect of personal decision-making and enterprise decision-making whether the enterprise is a project or a business. Risk has been defined in various ways but can be thought of as an evaluation of the significance of the delta between an intended outcome and an actual outcome. “Safe” does not mean “zero risk” or “risk-free” and that risks are ever present, always. Enterprises range from risk tolerant to risk averse, and one consideration in decision-making is a benefit-cost or reward-risk analysis. In Enterprise Risk Management, the alignment of what is said (intended outcome) should reasonably match the reality of what is done (actual outcome). The ability to influence and impact your personal and enterprise culture is important to minimize risk and maximize reward. ​​​​​​​​​​​
