Employee Injuries During School School-Spirit Activities: Determining Compensability & Managing Risk

Field Days, Student  vs. Teacher sports events, and other recreational activities can help boost school spirit among student, staff, and the community. Unhappily, however, these activities have occasionally resulted in serious injuries to participating teachers and school staff. The fact that some of these injuries may be compensable while others aren’t depending on the nature of the event, adds confusion that can lower employee morale even further. CIRMA's latest white paper, School Employee Injuries During School-Spirit Activities: Determining Compensability & Managing Risk was written to help school leaders understand the nuances of the relevant state Workers' Compensation statutes and provide risk management best practices so that injuries can be avoided and school spirit kept high.

Understanding Enterprise Risk Management & School Security

Addressing school and building security means taking a true Enterprise Risk Management approach and following the complete five-step risk management process, from first identifying and analyzing exposures through implementation and monitoring. CIRMA Risk Management is available to  consult with members who are either beginning the process of addressing security concerns or would like to re-assess what is already in place. 

Consultative services include assisting members with:

- Developing a collaborative building security committee to address the goals and initiatives of the individual member.
- Developing an on-site, hands-on process, which includes coordination of local public safety officials.
- Conducting, with the committee and safety officials, a comprehensive safety and security assessment of buildings and grounds to help identify and analyze exposures.
- Developing and implementing a tailored program with practical and workable solutions based on the assessment outcomes.
