HSE Enterprise Risk Management Policy and Procedures


Topic: Risk management
Document Owner: National director governance and risk
National Group: Enterprise risk management
Effective From: 31 March 2023
The 2023 Risk Management Policy sets out the policy and procedures by which the HSE manages risk. The approach is aligned to ISO 31000:2018 Risk Management Guidelines and replaces the HSE Integrated Risk Management Policy 2017.

Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) in healthcare promotes a comprehensive framework for making risk-based decisions that guide the protection and development of high-quality services and their contribution to improving healthcare outcomes. It enables better management of uncertainty and associated risks and opportunities. In particular, it guides the organisation to address risks comprehensively and coherently, instead of trying to manage them individually.
