School Safety - Overview
Within the Diocese of Syracuse family, there are many types of school settings. For this reason, considerable loss prevention information and material pertinent to schools has been developed.
In essence, this data should further assist each school location by helping:
· Manage the risk of accidental loss from unforeseen events by developing loss prevention programs and policies for the school involving various risks with particular attention to property and liability issues.
· Provide the expertise, support, and assistance to schools in developing more effective strategies and techniques for handling their loss prevention concerns.
· Continually review and analyze activities to determine the level of risk and liability and to advise management of potential sources of loss, as well as recommend how to best minimize or eliminate the loss.
· Create and maintain a safe, healthy environment for all students, visitors, and employees of the school.
· Protect the assets of the school from a catastrophic loss.
