Training Workshops

The following 5 Training Workshops form the building blocks for all training efforts.

meeting

Workshop #1: ‘The Primary Event Organizer Process’ (PEO Process)
Target Audience: Student leaders and students identified as the PEO for an Event (e.g. Club Presidents/Executive members; Residence Councils and RA’s).
Workshop is designed to:

  • Raise awareness levels on risk, negligence, accountability, and the importance of event planning
  • Introduce student leaders and PEO’s to the 3-step risk management process
  • Introduce basic event planning skills.

Workshop #2: ‘Event Planning’
Target Audience: Same as Workshop #1 above – i.e. anyone directly involved in planning and running an event.

The objective of this Workshop is to provide event planners with the necessary planning skills and tools to organize and implement safe events.
The Workshop is structured into 3 sections:

  • Event Assessment & Approval
  • Event Planning
  • Event Planning Resources
  • Importance of Checklists
    ‘Pre-Event’ Planning checklists
    ‘Day-of-Event’ checklists
    ‘Post Event’ checklists

Workshop #3: ‘PEO Process plus Event Planning’
This combination workshop allows participants to view both workshops consecutively.

Workshop #4: ‘Events – Let’s Get Real’
In this workshop,  a much more hard-hitting approach is adopted.  This ‘blunt’ approach may be needed for student event organizers who still ‘don’t get it’, and need an extra jolt of reality!

Workshop #5: ‘Events Risk Profile’
This workshop provides hands-on training on how to determine just how risky an event is.  By assigning values to ‘probability’ and ‘severity’, it is possible to calculate a risk rating for an event.  Does the event have too high a risk rating, and if yes, what are the options: cancel – or modify to make the risk more manageable?

The Risk Management Best Practice program provides institutionally-specific feedback allowing our University Recreation department to prioritize areas for improvement to enhance the safety and well-being of our participants.  The thorough analysis by areas of operations provides our staff tangible information to determine our next steps and most effective course of action.  This feedback would take much longer and be less objective if we attempted to undertake the reviews on our own. The comparative data is good for learning trends in best practices of other institutions.
