Every company or organization has their own set of rules and regulations to ensure the application of best practices within its framework. While there are regulations set by a company to protect its interests, it also needs to follow the common risk management standards set by the governing bodies. The Institute of Risk Management (IRM), the Association of Insurance and Risk Managers (AIRMIC) and the International Standards Organization (ISO) are key players in this context.
Over the years, internationally recognized standards have issued an established use of diction. This means that legal documentation or office manuals should be typed or written in a language that is understandable by all. A language that is too technical to understand will make compliance among organizations, a difficult task.
This standard is also applicable to the verbal jargon used in office spaces. Sometimes non-compliance can result from miscommunication leading to unwanted situations. People working in the organization, be it a laborer or the chief executive officer, should be able to communicate with others without any inconvenience.
The framework of an organization should be constructed in lieu of the framework guidelines provided by the authoritative bodies. This requires all organizations to have the same framework so that they can be judged on an equal level.
Criterion for dealing with hazard management issues has also been clearly defined. There is a standard procedure that needs to be followed whilst dealing with a crisis. This is applicable to all registered organizations and is to be included in their official manual for risk management standards.
Organizations like the ISO and COSO (Community of Sponsoring Organizations) ensure the prosperity of a company or business adhering to best practices. This includes the achievement of goals swiftly and effectively along with the implementation of dedicated management. It also includes the productive use of resources and extended control over business events.
