The issues of communication and consultation, establishing the context, identifying risks, analysing risks, evaluating risks, treating risks, and monitoring and review are discussed. Examples of risk in the road safety context are provided, including those relating to road trauma, legal risk, and risk from adverse public opinion. Case studies are provided to assist practitioners in the assessment and management of risks on their networks.
