After months of delays and several postponements, the M1 Grayston Bridge inquiry resumed on Tuesday 26 September – only to be postponed promptly once again. In the weeks prior to the resumption, the Department of Labour’s Teboho Thejane said, ‘Families that have been waiting to hear all the arguments so that they can put this matter to rest, to hear what has happened and if there are any people that are responsible for this. But at this point… we’re waiting to hear the arguments.’
Risk management is usually the responsibility of risk managers/professionals in separate business units working with different risk management systems. This contributes to a lack of risk information sharing and a lack of understanding of the organisation’s key risks, which prevents optimum results from being achieved. Although business units may function in isolation, risks certainly do not.
