Risk Management is the process of planning, organizing, leading, and controlling resources and activities to minimize the effects of losses. The objective is to reduce risk exposures and the associated costs of risks without adversely affecting the County’s requirements to serve and meet the needs of the public.

Risk Management Process

Effective risk management is achieved through the use of a systematic process. The Risk Manager performs the following processes: 
  • Identify loss exposures in the areas including, but not limited to, physical property, general liability, and employee health and well-being.
  • Analyze the exposures and reviewing risk management techniques available for responding to them.
  • Select the risk management technique(s) most suitable to reduce, eliminate or transfer loss exposures.
  • Implement and monitor the exposures for necessary changes in risk management techniques.
