Risk Management

Risk management is the process used to protect assets by minimizing the potential for negative outcomes. A 4-H club, group, or planning committee should anticipate potential risks as the activity is planned and should decide ways to manage these risks. Special areas for consideration include:

  • chaperones
  • emergency procedures
  • finances
  • overnight programming
  • transportation

You may want to review items on the Risk Management Checklist to ensure you’ve taken all the necessary steps to manage risk associated with your event or activity.
