The principles of Risk Management touch every aspect of our lives, but are especially important in an educational setting. Few of us would debate that learning goes hand-in-hand with risk. According to Alfred Lord Tennyson, "The shell must break before the bird can fly". It is the goal of CharterSAFE to support its member schools by providing information and resources designed to protect the most important assets of a school: students and staff.
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 offers no-cost employee training, safety consulting services and risk analysis to its members. Contact the Risk Management Department at (818) 394-6559 for information or services.
