Embracing project risk management and insurance considerations will be discussed at the 2019 Construction Industry Council (CIC) Conference that will be held at the Grand Pacific Hotel from the 13th to the 15th of June.
Presenting on the issue is Sahreena Mohammed, General Manager at AON (Fiji).
Ms Mohammed aims to advise delegates on the importance of early identification of risk and considered treatment of risks during various phases of the projects.
“We generally encourage our clients to build a risk register, where the brightest minds can come to the table and talk about some of the risks that are going to inhibit or influence the outcome of the project,” she said.
According to Ms Mohammed, issues such as labour, material availability or even political, climate issues are imperative for risk and insurance discussions.
She believes that various organisations were complacent about the issue.
“It’s really about making people aware that there are certain risk considerations that need to be taken into account when dealing with projects to ensure the right outcomes are reflected at time of execution. It all depends on the complexities of the project, what the influences are and how much time and effort one wants to invest at the start, rather than scrambling for solutions at time of execution,” she stressed.
Sahreena Mohammed has had vast experience in the field of project insurance placements. Besides AON (Fiji), she has worked in New Zealand and has run workshops for project managers at the likes of Watercare Services, Auckland Council and a number of leading contractors, with an illustrious career spanning over 20 years.
Ms Mohammed is more than happy to share her expertise with local industries and stakeholders both from a principal and contractor’s perspective.
