National Emergency Risk Assessment Guidelines (NERAG) Handbook

Understanding and reducing risk, and communicating with and educating the community about risks, are key drivers for action under the National Strategy for Disaster Resilience. The nationally consistent approach to risk assessment and prioritisation embodied in the National Emergency Risk Assessment Guidelines (NERAG) support the implementation of the strategy.

NERAG provides a contextualised, emergency-related risk assessment method consistent with the Australian Standard AS/NZS ISO 31000:2009 Risk management – principles and guidelines.
