Consequence scanning is a way for organisations to think about the potential impact of their product or service on people and society. With consequence scanning, organisations will be able to anticipate and address concerns they might have early on in the development cycle, before the final product is shipped.

consequence and risk evaluation tool

Through consequence scanning, you consider the potential consequences of what you’re building and document the potential outcomes in order to provide you with the opportunity to mitigate or address potential harms or disasters before they happen.

This interactive tool provides a framework to carry out a consequence scanning activity and generate a risk register that can be downloaded and incorporated into your project planning and governance.
