WEBINAR: "Roles and Responsibilities of Safety Representatives"

Description: Safety plays an integral role in the responsibilities of any risk manager. Safety however presents itself as many different faces, and many of those faces fall outside of the traditional realm of risk management. In many universities, risk management is an office or a function that resides in the Office of Financial Management. Safety, generally is found in the work of the Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S) Department (Health & Safety), and that function is often found in Facilities Management or Human Resources. Two different cultures!

Join Allan Brooks, Johnny Centineo, John Watson, and Michaele DeHart as they explore the different facets of higher education safety representatives' roles and how they inform the risk management process. This presentation will provide an overview of risk management, taking note of the ERM model and describing synergies with other university departments. In addition, the speakers will take into account the perspective of smaller educational institutions who may only have one or two risk management or environmental, health, and safety staff.

WEBINAR: "VAWA Amendments, the SaVE Act and Campus Sexual Assault"

Watch the Webinar

Description: As of October 1, 2014, the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act amendments to the Clery Act require institutions of higher education to issue annual security reports that describe certain policies and procedures and that identify resources, prevention and training programs related to domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking.  The breadth of these requirements demands a campus-wide response. This webinar will address what risk managers need to know about the VAWA amendments, and will emphasize the crucial role that risk managers can play, along with campus Title IX, public safety, student affairs, and other offices, in related compliance, prevention and broader risk reduction efforts.
