Risk Tolerance Training Best Practice

Risk Tolerance with facilitators guide, presentations and handouts

Safety

Risk Tolerance is an individual’s decision to accept or reject a certain risk. This best practice identifies and provides supporting materials on 10 top influencing factors on a worker’s risk tolerance. Presentations and facilitators session templates are provided for the top factors. These tools were released in 2015 at the request of the COAA Safety Committee.

Does risk always equal reward? Why do workers take risks when it comes to their personal safety on the job? The COAA Risk Tolerance Best Practice helps Owners and Contractors understand the 10 factors that influence risk tolerance and how to address them.
