What is the meaning of Consequences (Risk Consequences)?
Consequence (risk consequence) is the outcome
of an event or situation expressed qualitatively or quantitatively, being
a loss, injury, disadvantage or gain (AS/NZS 4360). A Risk
Consequence is the impact on desired outcomes from
the risk event occurring. Essentially, the concern focuses on loss,
since although windfalls may also result they do not create
a liability or cost. It is these consequences that creat
the need for management attention.
