What is Risk Management?
The University recognizes that there is exposure to accidental injury to persons and loss or damage to property inherent in its programs and activities. It is University policy for every employee to act to reduce the risk of such accidental loss or injury to the greatest extent feasible, consistent with carrying out of the mission and goals of the University. EWU resources must be protected from financial loss resulting from such events.
The Eastern Washington University Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP) is designed as a framework for mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery activities. It details authorities, functions, and responsibilities to establish a coordinated and effective response to emergencies and disasters of all types.
“Risk Management Basics” is an overview of information keyed to new risk managers in Washington state agencies. It is written in short, stand-alone segments that can be used as an overview or introduction to risk management subjects.
