About this item

Risk management has become a critical component of strategic management. It is the way an organization can live with the uncomfortable reality of risk. The facility manager’s role in risk management is to understand the vulnerabilities of the organization’s structures and infrastructure and balance the critical nature of the demand organization’s mission and functions against the possible occurrence and impact of a risk event. 

 IFMA’s Risk Management course will prepare facility managers to support their organization’s risk management strategies for building a resilient organization.

The destination is Resilience…the journey involves Risk Management, Emergency Preparedness, and building a strong Business Continuity Program.” ~Teena Shouse, IFMA Fellow, Author.

Facility managers demonstrate competency in Risk Management by mastering the knowledge and skills necessary to:

  • Identify human and physical assets that would be at risk should a threat occur.
  • Assess and evaluate the level of vulnerability should a threat occur.
  • Prioritize the severity of each occurrence.
  • Prepare a plan to mitigate as much risk as possible.

On completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Evaluate the facility risks that could disrupt, compromise, or cause a failure of the demand organization and provide valuable input into risk management strategies to support the continuity of the business.
  • Support the demand organization’s need for development, testing, and maintenance of a business continuity plan.
  • Develop a Risk Management plan for FM operations that align with organizational strategy.
  • Train FM staff in their roles and responsibilities in the event of a business interruption.
  • Detail the resources required to support the facilities aspect of business continuity and plan for the provision of those resources in an emergency.
