These risk management KPIs are an integral part of ensuring that the risk management employee and team and risk manager meet their critical organizational efficiencies. In addition, the successful implementation of the health and safety strategy plays a vital role in ensuring that the workplace meets minimum health and safety standards, ensuring a low-risk or risk-free environment. As a result, measuring these objectives is key to organizational success. They focus on tracking metrics grouped in three result areas: employee, team, and manager.

It is essential to track and measure these KPIs over time because they offer insight into the organization’s risk management team’s efficiencies and where improvements are needed. Metrics like improving the number of identified risks, reducing the frequency and severity of risks occurring, creating business continuity plans to limit risks, and analyzing current risks, and identifying potential risks that can affect the company are integral to ensuring a healthy and safe workplace for all employees throughout the organization.

Implementing risk management objectives or KPIs for the risk management team, employee, and manager drives the need to ensure consistency over time. High-performing metrics are valued, translating into an effective risk management strategy and the application by the risk management team. On the other hand, low-performing metrics must be revisited as they indicate poor performance and detract from operational and organizational success metrics.
