This guide reviews the emergency-related risk assessment and treatment process in Australia, offering both examples and practice hints. These ideas and suggestions are intended to support project team activities in specific parts of the risk management process. They describe approaches that may be helpful, but are discretionary.

This guide is a companion piece to the National Emergency Risk Assessment Guidelines (NERAG; available as Handbook 10 in the Australian Emergency Management Handbook Series). Those involved in implementing NERAG at state or local government levels should use this guide. It is designed for more experienced practitioners and for those new to emergency management; therefore, some of the concepts are more fully described.
