Operations Liability

University departments and personnel are involved in a number of activities and operations, ranging from athletics to field trips to study abroad programs to special events to intellectual property development to research to student clubs, et al. Any of these operations could result in injury to persons or damage to property. Controlling the risks associated with such operations requires such techniques as making good decisions, employing best practices, providing supervision, orientation and training for a particular activity, having emergency procedures in place, and weighing the benefits versus the risks to determine whether a particular activity should even be undertaken. For assistance in developing risk management techniques for any of your operations, contact the Risk Management Department.
