Chaper 9: Risk Management in Sport and Physical Education
Risk Management strategy
1. Identify and evaluate potential risks
2. Select best possible approaches to the risks.
3. Initiate operational procedures to control the risk
4. Evaluate the results.
A crisis is a "significant disruption that stimulates extensive new media coverage and public scrutiny and disrupts the organization's normal business activities."
Crisis Management
Public should be informed in plain language ASAP
Release only verified facts to media
Only report victims' names to the highest medical and law-enforcement authorities.
Supply the public with details to justify the conclusion, otherwise rumors will fill the vacuum.
Bus Rules
Review the record of the company, including accident reports, vehicle maintenance plans, and experience of drivers.
Ensure that the company has adequate insurance.
Ensure that the company is fully licensed.
Have legal counsel review the contract.
Ensure that the company has required drivers to be trained and that they have passed state examinations.
Select a company that has experience in transporting athletic teams.
The company should require that a coach or supervisor be on the bus
Risk Management
Includes safety, accident prevention, and sound insurance policies.
Total programs analyze risk, identify where and why injuries or accidents might occur, and specifies what to do about them (ex: identifying hazards, pinpointing aspects needing insurance)
The implications for risk management is to increase the care as the risk increases
If Physical Education and sport is to remain fun and exciting, a degree of controlled danger and risk must continue.
Plans should be much more sophisticated. "Crisis management is having a well-planned emergency strategy in place before a catastrophe occurs."
Sudden, Urgent, and Visible
Four Operation choices:
1. Bonded, independent contract carriers
2. Regular school vehicles with regular drivers
3. Inspected employee vehicles with a licensed adult driver
4. Inspected nonemployee vehicle with an adult licensed driver

Insurance is necessary for the protection of the sport organization as well as peace of mind of leaders
Insurance Triangle:
School/agency insurance
Insurance needs of teachers, coaches, and administrators
Coverage of students/athletes
Exculpatory Agreements
-Disclaimers, waivers, or approval forms
Disclaimer: Warns users that if product isn't used properly, the company will no provide compensation for injuries
Waiver: an intentional relinquishment of some right, interest, or the like
Approval form (parental consent): Ensures parental approve of the activities in which their children will engage:

1. Permission to participate (along with honest statement of risk).
2. Medical insurance company and member number.
3. Telephone numbers of parents or guardians at home, and alternative emergency number.
4. Name of the family physician with telephone numbers.
5. A list of special conditions or medications.
6. Permission for the student to be given emergency medical treatment in the even of an injury.

A strategic plan to control accidents should center on:
1. The physical environment
2. The program
3. The leadership
Physical Education and Safety
An aggressive safety program is greater for P.E. than athletics: Students are required to participate, compete for grades, vary in abilities, and less motor ability, endurance, and strength.
Put safety of participants first
Warn participants about the risks
Teach proper technique and correct skills
Explain and demonstrate safety rules
Check facilities and equipment regularly
Develop and practice an emergency plan
With children, be prepared for the unexpected
Recommended guidelines:
In teaching a gymnastics program, how could you control potential accidents?
