Unit Description
Organisational Risk Management is about minimising adversity and maximising the probability that
business can continue to operate in periods of unavoidable adversity. This unit will provide an
introduction to principles and processes involved in risk management, and exploration of issues
particular to corporate governance and business continuity. Study is framed around concepts set out
in important benchmarks, including Australian/International Standards, regulatory obligations and
lessons highlighted by past incidents and disasters. Students will develop research skills whilst
identifying risks and measures of their probability and impact. The principles introduced in the unit
can be applied enterprise-wide and in many different industries.
Note that financial risk and accounting information systems are addressed in other units offered
within the Faculty of Business.

Learning Expectations and Teaching Strategies/Approach
The University is committed to a high standard of professional conduct in all activities, and holds its
commitment and responsibilities to its students as being of paramount importance. Likewise, it
holds expectations about the responsibilities students have as they pursue their studies within the
special environment the University offers. The University’s Code of Conduct for Teaching and
Learning states:
Students are expected to participate actively and positively in the teaching/learning
environment. They must attend classes when and as required, strive to maintain steady
progress within the subject or unit framework, comply with workload expectations, and
submit required work on time.
These are some of the expectations we have of you as a student enrolled in this unit:
Your work is flexible in that you are free to manage your weekly study timetable as you choose, but
submission deadlines apply to all assessable items, so you will need to plan your time to meet the
submission deadlines for assessable tasks. To help you achieve this, target completion dates are
provided in the Unit Schedule on the last page of this Unit Outline.
With the exception of the Standards (described below in the Text section), all the unit materials and
tasks are provided to you within MyLO.
You are required to work your way through all the documents and links within each of the modules
in turn. Do not skip any modules or attempt to complete modules out of order because the materials
are cumulative - that is, each one contributes to knowledge you will need to succeed in the next.
Although there may be minor differences, each module will generally involve:
a) An introductory presentation and slide handouts. The presentation will describe the objectives
of the module, introduce the relevant concepts and provide guidance on how to proceed
through the other materials and tasks. You should use the slide handouts as a framework for
your notes, and fill out the notes further as you proceed through the remaining tasks for each
module.
b) Reading parts of the Standards, text book, and/or materials provided on MyLO;
c) Reflecting on the concepts and issues you have encountered (independent note taking, MyLO
discussions, etc);
d) Completing a test and/or other activity shown in the Module folder; and
e) Independently exploring issues arising from the topic to consolidate learning, or that are
potentially relevant to your work environment, or that you feel might be useful for your
assessable work.
Work, Health and Safety (OH&S)
The University is committed to providing a safe and secure teaching and learning environment. In
addition to specific requirements of this unit you should refer to the University’s policy at:
www.utas.edu.au/work-health-safety.
BFA310, Organisational Risk Management

Learning Resources
Prescribed Text
A prescribed text is a resource that you must have access to for the purposes of studying this unit.
You are required to read the following Standards, which together meet the objectives of a bestpractice text for the purposes of this Unit:
1. AS/NZS 5050:2010 Business Continuity - Managing disruption-related risk
2. AS/NZS ISO 31000:2009 Risk Management - Principles and guidelines
3. SA/SNZ HB 436:2013 (Guidelines to AS/NZS ISO 31000:2009)
You may purchase printed copies of these documents from Standards Australia, or you might prefer
to print them yourself. The total number of pages is approximately 213.
To purchase, visit http://www.standards.org.au/DevelopingStandards/BuyingaStandard.aspx , where
you will also find background information about Standards and their development.
To access the documents online for free:
a) Access the Standards Online Premium database via the UTas library: At
http://www.utas.edu.au/library/info/dbase/index.html, click `Databases'.
b) Click the link to 'S' and scroll down to Standards Online Premium.
c) Then do a search for "risk management" and you should find documents 2 and 3 near the top of
the list. (Ignore all items that mention 'buy' or 'purchase'.)
d) Click "view document", which will give you the choice of whether to view online, or save, or print.
e) You can either scroll through the next pages of results to find document 1, or you can search
separately with the term "5050", for example.
Saved documents will expire after three or four days, so I recommend you print them out straight
away. In addition, the license permits only two viewers at any one time, so you can not guarantee
access at all times. If busy, please try again later.
Other Recommended Resources
Additional reading materials are provided on MyLO. You will find these, plus directions to other
online resources, as you work through the topic folders.
You are also expected to research your own additional material for the purpose of completing
assignments. These may include (but will not be limited to) other risk-related Standards that you
will find in the Standards Online Premium database, as relevant to your study and/or assignment.
You are encouraged to read more widely to develop an understanding of the Unit's subject matter as
well as a general understanding of business management, operations processes and types of risk
exposures affecting business decisions. Independent reading to further your understanding of topic
issues and/or support your assessable work could include material you find in books, journals,
magazines, websites, reports and other sources. You can also access journals via the E-journals web
page contained on the university library website, and databases such as Science Direct, Proquest and
Emerald. Google Scholar is also useful.
BFA310, Organisational Risk Management

Reliable source information is extremely important to this Unit because it will be used as the basis of
important decisions that could significantly influence business' capacity to continue operations in a
variety of risk situations. In particular, you will need to know how to use the Harvard Referencing
Method. Comprehensive guidelines are on the library's website. If in doubt, please ask your Unit
Coordinator.

content is inappropriate or offensive. MyLO is a public forum. Due levels of respect,
professionalism and high ethical standards are expected of students at all times.
2.
Submission of assessment tasks via MyLO presumes that students have read, understood and
abide by the requirements relating to academic conduct, and in particular, those requirements
relating to plagiarism. All work submitted electronically is presumed to be “signed-off” by the
student submitting as their own work. Any breach of this requirement will lead to student
misconduct processes.
3.
MyLO is an Internet service for teaching and learning provided by the University. It is
expected that you check your units in MyLO for updates at least once a day.

Late Assessment and Extension Policy
In this Policy
1.
(a) ‘day’ or ‘days’ includes all calendar days, including weekends and public holidays;
(b) ‘late’ means after the due date and time; and
(c) ‘assessment items’ includes all internal non-examination based forms of assessment
2.
This Policy applies to all students enrolled in TSBE Units at whatever Campus or geographical
location.
3.
Students are expected to submit assessment items on or before the due date and time specified
in the relevant Unit Outline. The onus is on the student to prove the date and time of
submission.
4.
Students who have a medical condition or special circumstances may apply for an extension.
Requests for extensions should, where possible, be made in writing to the Unit Coordinator on
or before the due date. Students will need to provide independent supporting documentation
to substantiate their claims.
BFA310, Organisational Risk Management

5.
Late submission of assessment items will incur a penalty of 10% of the total marks possible for
that piece of assessment for each day the assessment item is late unless an extension had been
granted on or before the relevant due date.
6.
Assessment items submitted more than five (5) days late will not be accepted.
7.
Academic staff do NOT have the discretion to waive a late penalty, subject to clause 4 above.
Academic Referencing and Style Guide
In your written work you will need to support your ideas by referring to scholarly literature, works of
art and/or inventions. It is important that you understand how to correctly refer to the work of
others and maintain academic integrity.
Failure to appropriately acknowledge the ideas of others constitutes academic dishonesty
(plagiarism), a matter considered by the University of Tasmania as a serious offence.
The appropriate referencing style for this unit is: the Harvard style. For information on presentation
of assignments, including referencing styles:
http://utas.libguides.com/content.php?pid=27520&sid=199808
Review of Assessment and Results
Review of Internal Assessment
It is expected that students will adhere to the following policy for a review of any piece of
continuous/internal assessment. The term continuous/internal assessment includes any assessment
task undertaken across the teaching phase of any unit (such as an assignment, a tutorial
presentation, and online discussion, and the like), as well as any capstone assignment or take-home
exam.
Within five (5) days of release of the assessment result a student may request a meeting with the
assessor for the purpose of an informal review of the result (in accordance with Academic
Assessment Rule No. 2 Clause 22 – www.utas.edu.au/university-council/universitygovernance/rules). During the meeting, the student should be prepared to discuss specifically the
marks for the section(s) of the marking criteria they are disputing and why they consider their
mark(s) is/are incorrect. The assessor will provide a response to the request for review within five (5)
days of the meeting.
If the student is dissatisfied with the response they may request a formal review of assessment by
the Head of School, with the request being lodged within five (5) days of the informal review being
completed. A Review of Internal Assessment Form must be submitted with the formal review
(http://www.studentcentre.utas.edu.au/examinations_and_results/forms_files/review_of_assessm
ent.pdf).
Review of Final Exam/Result
In units with an invigilated exam students may request a review of their final exam result. You may
request to see your exam script after results have been released by completing the Access to Exam
Script Form, which is available from the TSBE Office, or at the following link –
http://www.utas.edu.au/business-and-economics/student-resources. Your unit coordinator will
BFA310, Organisational Risk Management
15
then contact you by email within five (5) working days of receipt of this form to go through your
exam script.
Should you require a review of your final result a formal request must be made only after
completing the review of exam script process list above. To comply with UTAS policy, this request
must be made within ten (10) days from the release of the final results (in accordance with
Academic Assessment Rule No. 2 Clause 22 – www.utas.edu.au/university-council/universitygovernance/rules). You will need to complete an Application for Review of Assessment Form, which
can be accessed from
www.studentcentre.utas.edu.au/examinations_and_results/forms_files/review_of_assessment.pdf.
Note that if you have passed the unit you will be required to pay $50 for this review.
The TSBE reserves the right to refuse a student request to review final examination scripts should
this process not be followed.

Academic Misconduct and Plagiarism
Academic misconduct includes cheating, plagiarism, allowing another student to copy work for an
assignment or an examination, and any other conduct by which a student:
(a) seeks to gain, for themselves or for any other person, any academic advantage or advancement
to which they or that other person are not entitled; or
(b) improperly disadvantages any other student.
Students engaging in any form of academic misconduct may be dealt with under the Ordinance of
Student Discipline. This can include imposition of penalties that range from a deduction/cancellation
of marks to exclusion from a unit or the University. Details of penalties that can be imposed are
available in the Ordinance of Student Discipline – Part 3 Academic Misconduct, see
www.utas.edu.au/universitycouncil/legislation.
Plagiarism is a form of cheating. It is taking and using someone else’s thoughts, writings or
inventions and representing them as your own, for example:
•
•
•
using an author’s words without putting them in quotation marks and citing the source;
using an author’s ideas without proper acknowledgment and citation; or
copying another student’s work.
It also means using ones’ own work from previously submitted assessment items if repeating a unit.
If you have any doubts about how to refer to the work of others in your assignments, please
consult your lecturer or tutor for relevant referencing guidelines, and the academic integrity
resources on the web at http://www.academicintegrity.utas.edu.au/ The intentional copying of
someone else’s work as one’s own is a serious offence punishable by penalties that may range from
a fine or deduction/cancellation of marks and, in the most serious of cases, to exclusion from a unit,
a course, or the University.
The University and any persons authorised by the University may submit your assessable works to
a plagiarism checking service, to obtain a report on possible instances of plagiarism. Assessable
works may also be included in a reference database. It is a condition of this arrangement that the
original author’s permission is required before a work within the database can be viewed.
For further information on this statement and general referencing guidelines, see
www.utas.edu.au/plagiarism/ or follow the link under ‘Policy, Procedures and Feedback’ on the
Current Students homepage.
