The purpose of the Risk Management is to strengthen the proper management of risks through proactive risk identification, assessment, control and acceptance pertaining to all activities within the California State University Maritime Academy (Cal Maritime) and its Auxiliaries. The California State University (CSU) recognizes Occupational Health & Safety (e.g. Environmental Health & Safety or EH&S) as an integral function throughout the CSU system. EH&S includes policies and practices designed to mitigate the risk of injury and illness to Cal Maritime employees and to promote campus health and safety programs.
|The process of identifying exposures, measuring the probability of an impact event and minimizing the actuality or impact of the event.||The condition of being in sound body, mind and spirit.||The process of protection of both people and property through integrated system management.||The forecasting and evaluation of financial risks together with the identification of procedures to avoid or minimize their impact.|
The Director of Safety and Risk Management (SRM), as delegated by the University President, is responsible for the implementation and administrative management of Cal Maritime's EH&S and Risk Management process management. As a means to minimize risk, support a safe and healthful Campus Community as well as improve efficiencies, the Department utilizes Integrated Safety and Environmental Management (ISEM) and Lean Management principles in order to provide a sustainable process management system.

LEAN + Safety:
5S is a method for organizing a work area to increase efficiency and productivity while reducing waste. It is one of the first steps that many companies make while trying to become "lean". While 5S can help make a company lean, but it also can improve safety and health at the company. It makes sense, because a more organized, tidier workplace is going to have fewer hazards. For example, if your housekeeping is better, you'll have fewer tripping hazards. And if you've organized the workplace so tools and machines are placed more appropriately, your workers will have fewer ergonomic risks.
Even though 5S comes with "built-in" safety benefits, that's not the end of the story. Over time, people have modified 5S by adding a new "S" to create 6S systems. One of the most common of the 6S systems results from adding Safety to 5S. This is sometimes called 5S+, 6S, lean 6S, 6S safety, or lean 6S safety.
What is ISEM?
The risk management process of identifying, analyzing, evaluating and ultimately responding to and monitoring risk is at the heart of an integrated safety and risk management system. Extending this process across an entire organization, looking at both "upside" and "downside" risk, and considering risk in the context of strategy is what differentiates ISEM from Traditional risk management.
ISEM is a 5-step continuous improvement process that involves planning, performance, and review for incorporating safety and environmental best practices into work activities.
First, lets start with the Core principles.
ISEM relies on weaving these core principles into the way we do business at Cal Maritime:
HIRAC What is it?
Hazard Identification, Risk Assessment and Control (HIRAC) has become fundamental to the practice of planning, management and the operation of a business as a basic of risk management.
HIRAC is a tool used to:
Risk Assessments begin with:
Define Scope: Clearly defining a task from initiation to completion helps reveal the possible risks, hazards, and environmental impacts of the activity.
Analyze Hazards: Understanding the risks and hazards enables appropriate planning to protect people, property, and the environment.
Control for Hazards: Appropriate controls, authorizations, monitoring, emergency procedures, equipment, and training are established and implemented before work begins.
Perform Work: Work begins when identified risks have been eliminated or controlled, and readiness is confirmed.
Evaluate Performance: How can we do better next time? From the planning stage to wrap up, gather feedback, review monitoring results, and look for ways to improve the process.
