The site in question is one of the client' major assets. It has its own emergency team to provide emergency response. In order to improve arrangements and reduce costs the client was looking to make some changes in the way the team was organised. Andy was asked to carry out a qualitative risk assessment of the planned changes and to advise whether the proposal was sensible. Also, to advise on how it should be implemented. Working with a junior colleague, Andy discussed the key issues with all those likely to be affected by the changes. From this the main potential risk factors were identified and evaluated. The conclusion from the project was that the changes could go ahead if certain activities were carried out when managing the change.
