  Abstract: The principles of risk analysis are widely understood, but delivering reliable and consistent assessments of security related risks can prove difficult. This paper presents a case study of the development and use of a risk assessment tool that facilitates analysis of a range of variables, and delivers a qualitative description of the risk of harm to staff arising from robbery at any given cash handling point. The model used draws on the principles of situational crime prevention (Clarke, 1980) and adopts a risk assessment method consistent with the Australian and New Zealand Standard for Risk Management (Standards Australia, 1999). The paper also shows how this approach can be readily adapted to other risks to deliver consistent outcomes.
