Risk Management Workshop Info and Reg Form 2015

PaCIE is offering a one-day Lodestone Safety International workshop designed for study abroad faculty and administrators. The workshop goals are two-fold: 1) to address what faculty and administrators must do to minimize risk and maximize safety and 2) what specific skills, knowledge, and information access they need to be able to do it.

Participants will come away with a better understanding of the international hazard landscape based on data and research as well as to how best evaluate and tailor their risk management strategies to their particular programs.

Informative presentations and case studies will be interspersed with group exercises to best capture the collective wisdom of the participants. Presentation content will be supplemented by a Lodestone Safety International readings packet.

Presenter: Bill Frederick is the founder of Lodestone Safety International, a training and consulting company specializing in health, safety and security for educational organizations operating abroad. Prior to that he served as the Director of Safety at the School for Field Studies for 8 years and served with Outward Bound for 16 years. Bill was chair for the Forum on Education Abroad’s pilot incident database and served for 3 years as co chair for the Forum Standards Institute: Beyond the Basics of Health, Safety and Security.
