The Risk Management Department encompasses;
- employee health benefits
- a self insured workers compensation program with an early return to work program that strives to keep injured employees working in a temporary modified capacity while medical treatment continues
- a pro-active property and liability program designed to protect the District from third party claims and reimburses the District for lost or damaged property (first party claims)
- employee safety that includes safety plans and procedures for hazard assessments, ergonomic evaluations, site inspections, and staff training
- emergency preparedness that includes procedures, training and drills to ensure staff and students are prepared in the event of an emergency
In all cases, the objective is to protect District resources against the increasing costs of potential losses, while supporting the educational process. For every dollar spent on litigation or claims, there is one less dollar available for the students in the classroom.

If you have car trouble at night, make sure to pull off the road as far as possible and keep passengers off the roadway. Warn approaching traffic by setting up reflecting triangles (near your vehicle and 300 feet behind it) and turning on your flashers and the dome light. Get more on driver safety.
