Navigating Health, Safety and Security Off Campus; Program Sold Out! Join our Waiting List!

In conjunction with Lodestone Safety International, PAISBOA will present Navigating Health, Safety and Security Off Campus on Friday, February 7, 2020, from 8:00 am-2:00 pm at the PAISBOA Offices in Radnor Township.

Designed largely for faculty and staff members who serve as chaperones, the workshop will provide an overview of the hazard landscape and the risk management strategies available for off-campus programs. We’ll begin from the perspective of what trip leaders need to be able to do and what skills, understanding and information access they need. The workshop will include most recent data, standards and best practices. Although the lecture content is primarily focused on international programs, the larger format and discussions are intended to be inclusive of all off-campus programming.

The curriculum will include information acquisition and vetting strategies, cross cultural implications for safety, and emergency response. We’ll look at program structure, policy making and training for staff and program participants.

Participants will come away with a more informed perspective as well as actionable tools for reducing risk. The format consists of small group work on scenarios interspersed with content lectures. Most scenarios will be internationally focused. Participants will receive a readings packet prior to the training.

  • To present an overview of domestic and international risk management for off campus programs.
  • To provide practical, actionable tools to assist faculty with the risk management of their domestic and international programs.
  • To enhance faculty and staff’s ability to reduce the likelihood of health, safety and security incidents and to more effectively mitigate the harm of untoward events when they do occur.

Workshop cost will be $200 per person for PAISBOA Members, $300 per person for non-members, and includes lunch and all workshop materials.
