The webinar included the following helpful information and resources:

  • A definition of what a risk management program for K-12 schools is designed to do and an exploration of the components included in an effective risk management program.
  • A discussion on the types of input and output data utilized in a risk management program, common data sources, and why accessing and analyzing data is critical to understanding risk in your organization.
  • A review of common risk management blunders, including undervaluing the risk management program, not placing a priority on consistent training, and more.
  • Strategies for building buy-in and support for the risk management program across your district.
  • An explanation of the important role vendors play in your risk management program, tips for evaluating vendors, and strategies for maintaining healthy vendor relationships.

In addition to the resources and strategies shared by Charles, the webinar also included a brief introduction to Vector Solutions’ online staff training courses for K-12 schools focused on safety, compliance and prevention, and an overview of the Vector EHS Management System for tracking, managing, and analyzing incidents, hazards, and more.
