Risk management Standard seminar series scheduled
30 March 2010
Standards New Zealand and the New Zealand Society for Risk Management Inc. are running seminars about applying the international Standard Risk management – Principles and guidelines ISO 31000:2009. The half-day seminars are scheduled for Auckland (12 April), Christchurch (14 April), and Wellington (19 April).
Standards New Zealand General Manager Shona Weller says, 'The seminar series is designed for a wide range of businesses and organisations, including manufacturing, the trades, service providers, Crown entities, and not-for-profits. The series offers organisations a unique opportunity to gain practical insights into managing risk more effectively.'
