The SEMC's State Risk Project aims to gain a comprehensive understanding of the risks the State faces at a state, district and local level.
In order to ensure the risks are assessed consistently, the "Attachment to State Emergency Management Prevention and Mitigation Procedure 1: Western Australian Emergency Risk Management" has been developed. This document sits within the State Emergency Management procedures suite.
To assist local governments to undertake their risk assessment, the State Risk Project has created a handbook specifically targeted for local governments: WA Emergency Risk Management Local Government Handbook (below). The handbook outlines all that is required for local governments to meet their emergency risk management obligations.
Once risks have been assessed they will need to be treated. The
State Risk Project has also created a risk treatment manual: WA Emergency Risk Management Treatment Manual (below) to assist with the treatment process for identified risks.
