Risk Managed: Improving the safety, efficiency and quality of in-home care.

Keeping care workers injury free

Emma Small and Aideen Gallagher are occupational therapists, passionate about the health and well being of care organisations, their care workers and people with a disability. They are using their 30 years of industry knowledge and skills to change the way care and disability services think about manual handling. Risk Managed is known for helping keep care workers injury free when assisting people with disability, for example to lift a person out of bed, shower and get dressed for the day.


Founded in 2014, Risk Managed helps care organisations and allied health professionals. For in-home care organisations we show them how to deliver smart care, that is care where the risk to their business as a result of manual handling is mitigated, efficiencies in how they deliver care are maximised and they deliver high quality care to their clients. For allied health professionals we give them the skills, knowledge and resources to deliver these smart care solutions to their clients with more confidence, more efficiently and with less stress. Emma and Aideen are committed to creating a highly skilled, resourceful and efficient workforce of care staff to do the work they love, injury free.
