thinkingOnline Risk Assessment

Do you have the skills and knowledge to conduct an internal Risk Management audit of your department? How well do you stack up compared to other schools — and how will you know?

Why not leave it to the experts?

McGregor & Associates’ exclusive ‘Online Risk Assessment’ provides key benchmark data for your department (relative to over 100 North American universities), and uncovers critical gaps in your risk management plan.

What’s Involved?

Various staff members complete an online survey in their area of responsibility (e.g. Aquatics, Intramurals etc.). Department-wide involvement in completing these surveys ensures buy-in to overall project, plus ownership of the outcomes detailed in the report.

Eight (8) Program surveys

  • Aquatics
  • Fitness/ Wellness
  • Intramurals
  • Non-credit Instruction
  • Outdoor Program
  • Sport Clubs
  • Youth Camps
  • Weight Room/ Fitness Center

Six (6) General Administration surveys

  • Risk Management Plan
  • Emergency Response Plan
  • Facilities & Equipment
  • Rentals & Special Events
  • Waivers
  • Transportation

The focus of each of the ‘Program’ surveys is the ‘5 Key Risk Areas':

  • Emergency Response Plan
  • Supervision/ Instruction
  • Training
  • Facilities & Equipment
  • Documentation

This means that meaningful comparisons can be made between program units and hence inconsistencies are targeted.

Each survey takes 5-10 minutes to complete

Working with McGregor & Associates allowed our staff to come together and learn how to communicate with each other about risk management issues… it was an outstanding team-building and/or learning environment for everyone. Our entire professional staff participated in the process and was divided into “working committees” to facilitate the collection of materials and develop common, department-wide, policies and risk management procedures.

As a result of working with McGregor & Associates, our Department has a well defined, and operational, Risk Management Manual, that incorporates its entire set of programs and services…. this is an active and fluid document that will continue to be updated and reviewed on a regular basis. In addition, as a result of this process, the department has established a department-wide Risk Management Committee that is responsible to monitor and manage the various risk-related issues associated with our programs and services. This committee will meet on a regular basis, communicate with the university’s Risk Management Services and will continue to oversee the management of our organization’s risk related needs.
