Organisational Change Risk Assessment

Technically-oriented organisations are often very good at managing technical change. They have change management systems and processes, which help ensure technical changes are risk assessed, and that no unforeseen consequences occur. The same cannot be said for organisational changes, which may not be subject to the same degree of scrutiny.

With major organisational changes, health and safety regulators may become involved, and wish to see a demonstration of how organisational changes have been risk-assessed and are being managed.

Some description

The Keil Centre have reviewed the existing guidance on managing HSE risk during organisational change, and consolidated this into an organisational change risk assessment method.  The method has been tested with several clients who were facing a regulatory inspection. The method proved simple to use, and satisfied the regulator.

This method is of interest to operational managers, HSE specialists, HR professionals and regulators.
