2019 Pre-Conf Flyer - Developing a Parks and Rec Risk Management Plan.pdf
Park and recreation agencies are responsible for the safe delivery and operation of programs, facilities, and services. We understand that there is inherent risk in leisure activities, such as hiking, swimming across a lake, standup paddling, or playing in the championship basketball tournament as examples. Sometimes, that thrill is why people play. Our responsibility is to provide experiences in which that risk is controlled, to minimize and/or eliminate injuries and accidents to the public and our employees. There are also internal policies and procedures to manage risk with the handling of finances. In this workshop, you will learn how to identify and analyze risk exposures and will learn how to create a Risk Management Plan to guide your programs and facilities with the goal of reducing future unexpected losses.
1. List the elements of an effective Risk Management Plan.
2. Identify risk levels in participation in various types of facilities and programs.
3. Develop methods to review participant hold harmless & indemnification agreements, insurance recommendations, certificates of insurance, naming of additional insureds, and the use of volunteers.
4. Discuss the importance of having structured facility use agreements and how to identify risk control approaches to reduce injury and liability.
5. Identify SOPs to be created to manage fiduciary operations.
