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

In July of 2015 California State University, Chico had the opportunity to participate in Sport Risk’s new ‘Best Practices’ risk management review conducted by Ian McGregor & Associates. Ian is clearly one of the most knowledgable and experienced leaders in risk management practices and our institution was excited to be one of the first Universities to use this new evaluation process. 

 While evaluating our programs we found his work to be innovative, comprehensive, and easy to use throughout all aspects of our various recreation programs. Because of his outstanding work we are using the recommendations as a catalyst for program improvement.  Being able to contrast our practices with other NIRSA institutions is invaluable in bringing our programs to a higher standard of excellence. Without hesitation, I would recommend this process to any collegiate recreation program who is interested in current, state of the art, risk management practices. You will find Ian McGregor and Associates to be professional and cost effective in helping you meet your administrative responsibilities.
