The seminar which was well attended by the target audience had two separate sessions. The core of the messages from the seminar was that the task of identifying, documenting and providing mitigation plans for the risks associated with our research activities and operations is the business of all of us in the Institute.
The questions and answers which followed the interactive sessions brought out a number of salient issues.
Members of staff were encouraged to take the opportunity and make constructive contributions, bring up concerns and get involved in their respective units in order to build the risk management culture in IITA
