Risk Prevention and Management Introduction

Purpose

Comprehensive, systematic, and effective risk prevention and management practices sustain the organization's ability to positively impact the communities and people it serves by reducing its risk, loss, and liability exposure.

Introduction

COA’s Risk Prevention and Management standards require that organizations take a proactive approach to risk by continually improving systems and practices for identifying and mitigating potential risks, and learning from adverse events and challenges when they occur. Proactive, systemic risk prevention and management requires a holistic approach that involves staff throughout the organization and considers all areas of potential risk including, but not limited to: legal compliance, liability exposure, health and safety, human resources, contracting, technology, security of information, client rights and confidentiality, and finances. Such practices contribute to mission fulfillment by protecting the organization’s long-term sustainability.
