Risk culture is a collective approach to managing risk and making decisions. It’s a system of beliefs, values and behaviours throughout your organisation. A positive risk culture is one where team members at every level appropriately manage risk as an integral part of their daily work routine. This type of culture supports open discussion about both uncertainties and opportunities, and encourages team members to raise their concerns.

For risk management to be effective, culture must be a focus. So where do you start? How do you evaluate it and build an improvement plan?

You'll learn practical techniques to understand risk culture and how to build a plan to improve it.

Learning outcomes

By the end of the workshop, you should be able to:

  • Define risk culture
  • Evaluate risk culture
  • Build a risk culture improvement plan

Learning options


This half-day session is an opportunity to network with others in a creative learning environment. Sessions are interactive, activity based learning and focused on delivering practical techniques that can be applied back into your organisations. You’ll get to meet other people in person with similar challenges and experiences.

Online Webinars:

You can access our risk culture learning program in two interactive online webinars (1 hour each). You’ll discover the risk culture concept and how to evaluate it. You’ll learn how to build your own risk culture improvement plan.

Our online learning is about your convenience. You’ll learn and hear from others, all from the comfort of home or in a quiet space in your office. The two webinars are scheduled a week apart, giving you time to complete set activities in between.


This session is designed for Victorian Government and community services organisations. This workshop isn’t just for risk professionals – it’s suited to managers and leaders in a range of roles.

To get the most out of these offerings, complete “Risk in Practice” first, and read our risk culture guide.
