Risk Management

Office of Risk Management

The Risk Management Department of Lamar University develops, implements, and maintains a comprehensive risk management program. Programs address loss control and guidelines in order to reduce property loss, liability, and worker’s compensation or risk exposures. The department is vested with the power to perform studies, evaluate existing projects, disseminate information, and provide training to enforce regulations related to public health.

Reduction of the cost of risk is the primary objective of the risk management program; specific goals that support this primary objective are to:

  • Minimize exposures to financial loss
  • Protect physical assets
  • Reduce the frequency and severity of accidents
  • Provide a reasonably safe environment for employees and the public
  • Minimize interruptions of services provided to the public
