Risk Management

Managing risks is inherent in every safety professional’s job description.  Risk management is the process of recognizing that a hazard exists, trying to define its characteristics, and finding a way to mitigate the risk for the employer.

Risk management efforts rely on trending data to identify most often cited OSHA regulations and rank New Mexico’s safety record as compared to national safety statistics.  The Chapter’s environmental, health and safety committee reviews NM trends and compares Bureau of Labor StatisticsNM OSHA and Federal OSHA statistics each year.

To help AGC New Mexico members with their risk management, our member- only section includes Safety News AlertsSafety BriefsBehavior-Based Safety tools plus sample Job Hazard Analysis forms (JHAs) and Construction Site Safety Audit tools.  Please login to view these resources.
