PEP & MTAS Partner on Risk Management Training

  • 5/4/2023 7:25 am

Public Entity Partners is partnering with MTAS (Municipal Technical Advisory Service) to present a special virtual educational series on risk management for our members. Identifying, managing and mitigating risk is everyone’s responsibility. When these are effectively implemented and regularly applied, they can save your organization money.  

This risk management series is designed to educate participants about the most common risk exposures faced by public entities, and how they can utilize best practices to minimize risk for their organizations. The three-part series will be led by Sarah Curtis, PE Partners’ loss control training consultant. 

“PE Partners is excited about these opportunities to reach municipalities and further their knowledge in risk management best practices,” Curtis said. “We are also proud to partner with MTAS in an effort to reach as many city employees as possible.” 

The first session of the series will be held this month, with additional sessions taking place in the fall of 2023: 

May 16 – Property Conservation: Protecting Your Assets – Reducing property losses is an important aspect of any risk management plan. Focusing on the most common property risks, this session will offer guidance on minimizing risk and protecting public assets. The discussion will include best practices in property conservation using a holistic approach of loss prevention, accountability and communication. 

September 12 – Liability: Reducing Your Exposure – Public entities face unique exposures due to the nature of the services they provide. This session will take a deep dive into some of the most common exposures, including general liability, employment practices liability and law enforcement liability. It will further explore policies and best practices for mitigating these risks and minimizing the impact of a loss. 

November 2 – Workers’ Compensation: Protecting Your Employees and Your Operations – Considering the risks associated with the numerous jobs it takes to run a public entity, most employers will experience work-related injuries at some point. While employee safety and the mitigation of these risks should be of top concern, it is also important to have a plan in place should a work-related injury occur. This session will provide you with steps to properly manage your workers’ compensation claims and ensure the best possible outcomes for your injured employee and organization. Additional resources will be shared with participants to assist in navigating the workers’ compensation claims process.
