Praesidium Risk Assessment
First assess, then address.
Praesidium’s comprehensive Risk Assessment™ identifies how and to what extent your organization may be most at risk for boundary violations and incidents of abuse. The assessment begins with:
- A review of your organization’s programs, policies, personnel records, and incident data.
- Site inspection.
- Interviews with employees, volunteers, administrators, and organizational leaders.
- Observing activities in action.
This allows us to focus on how you can reduce exposure and keep youth and vulnerable adult populations safe. At a high-level, a Praesidium Risk Assessment includes three steps:
1. Data Collection and Document Review
Our proprietary review process uses a variety of data collection methods to systematically assess the extent to which an organization has established adequate risk management policies and procedures in each of the eight operations included in the Praesidium Safety Equation.
2. Comparison of Data Collected to Best Practice Standards
Our experts compile and analyze the information collected during the assessment process, comparing our findings to best practices and program-specific standards. This allows us to systematically identify system-wide and program- or location-specific exposures.
3. Recommendations and Corrective Action Plan
We then develop a comprehensive report that addresses strengths and potential exposures in the eight key operational areas. This report will include recommendations for corrective actions your organization can take to reduce the risk of abuse or false allegations of abuse and create a safe environment.
