The principles of Risk Management touch every aspect of our lives, but are especially important in an educational setting. Mitigating risk is the school's best ally in reducing the frequency of injuries and damage, but accidents can occur in spite of the best efforts to avoid them.
While an insurance program can insulate schools from the financial hardships associated with claims, a good Risk Management program reduces the toll of human suffering and lost time caused by injury. In addition, there are many mandates placed upon schools by regulatory agencies to ensure safety in the workplace and on school premises. CharterSAFE members have access to no-cost resources including training, loss control, and human resources advisory.
