Summer Programme Details
Programme 1:
Tree Risk Exposure (Management Actions) with Mark Duntemann

A critical element of the ISO’s risk management process is identifying an organization’s (private or public) risk exposure.  Identifying risk exposure from the trees being managed allows an organization to develop policies that appropriately address the risks identified.  The initial sessions in this module detail a process to identify the range of risk exposures and priorities associated with publicly managed trees.  The final sessions of the day will provide guidance on determining risk thresholds and whether ALARP (As Low As Reasonably Practical) has been achieved.
