Risk management

The WorkCover Queensland Board is committed to the implementation of an appropriate risk management program throughout the organisation, including the periodic review and monitoring the treatment of the top strategic risks.

At an operational level, our CEO ensures the implementation and ongoing maintenance of the risk management program and ensures that risk management is an integral part of the corporate planning process.

Our executive managers are responsible for coordinating and monitoring risk management issues, making operational policy recommendations, and monitoring the treatment of high risks.

Management and staff within each part of the business have responsibility to proactively identify risks, choose and implement methods to treat these risks, and monitor their control effectiveness. A dedicated team manages the risk registers and facilitates the process to document risks in conjunction with each part of the business.

Internal audit provides an independent, objective assurance, and consultative service. Their role is to provide the Risk and Audit committee and WorkCover’s executive managers with information and advice concerning the activities reviewed and the adequacy of internal controls.
