Risk Management Policies
It is the policy of Cal Maritime to provide procedures, and practices designed to minimize the adverse effects of losses arising from injury to persons or damage to property in accordance with Executive Order #715. The Academy and its administrators and employees are responsible for conducting programs and activities in a manner that does not impose an unreasonable risk of loss or injury.
The campus president has delegated responsibility for implementation of Executive Order 715, the CSU Risk Management Policy (10/27/99), to the Vice President for Administration. The Vice President for Administration has directed the establishment of a Risk Management Office to develop and implement programs, policies, and procedures in support of Executive Order 715.
Management of risk is a priority function of the university to ensure the use of resources for the established program purposes rather than for funding losses due to foreseeable risks. Program management is responsible for: conducting campus operations in a manner that does not create unreasonable risks of loss or injury; the identification and analysis of risks; development and selection of risk controls and risk financing to manage risks; implementation and evaluation of risk management techniques; and documentation of these actions to ensure the responsible planning, organizing, leading, and control of resources.
The Risk Management department shall provide assistance to campus entities in identification and examination of risks, selection of risk control and risk financing techniques, evaluation of the results, and improvement of risk management.
