Western Sydney University Risk Management

A University-wide Risk Management Approach

The University maintains an enterprise-wide strategic risk management program which is based on the methodology contained in the Australian/New Zealand Risk Management Standard AS/NZS ISO 31000:2018.

As part of the ongoing improvements to our risk management framework, Strategic and Operational Risk Registers are now maintained in our enterprise-wide risk management system – WesternERM.

This approach allows staff to access the Registers using the internet from any location, at any time using a variety of desktop or portable devices. It also provides for more timely updates and assists with the identification of emerging risks or unwelcome trends. The system is secure and access to the Registers are limited to senior and key administrative staff only.

If you would like more information regarding the on-line Registers and how to access them please contact Aman Chand at aman.chand@westernsydney.edu.au.
