Risk Avoidance
Technically, avoidance takes place whendecisions are made that prevent a risk fromeven coming into existence.
Risks are avoided when the organizationrefuses to accept the risk even for an instant.
An example is a firm that considersmanufacturing some product but, because of the hazards involved elects not to do so.

Risk Avoidance
While avoidance is the only alternative for dealing with some risks, it is a negative rather than a positive approach.
If avoidance is used extensively, the firm maynot be able to achieve its primary objectives.
For this reason, avoidance is, in a sense, thelast resort in dealing with risk. It is usedwhen there is no other alternative.
