This workshop is designed to assist Study Abroad staff new to the field to understand the basics of the Health, Safety and Security considerations at play as part of sending students abroad. We will explore the topics of “Duty of Care,” “Risk Tolerance and Risk Assessment,” and the issues at play in “Emergency Preparedness and Response” to help study abroad staff improve their abilities when working with the myriad of stakeholders engaged on the campus level. Much work has been done in the arena of Safety and Security over the past decade that will be shared to assist the newcomer in adapting to their roles on campus.

Learning Objectives
At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:
» Learn a framework for understanding how to think about Risk Management
» Articulate the components of a Risk Management System
» Identify resources both on and off campus to help you in preparing your staff and students pre-departure, while on the program and after the program
» Know the “lingo” and the actors in the Health, Safety and Security abroad field

Workshop 1: Part 2
Wednesday, November 7
Half-Day Afternoon
1:00 - 3:00 p.m.

Health, Safety, and Security: Advanced Training: The Stress Test on Preparedness

Details

Facilitators
» Bill Bull, VP Risk Management, CIEE
» Colin McElroy, Director of Health, Safety, & Security, CIEE

Utilizing an imaginary country profile and a risk matrix, workshop participants will walk through the process of determining if they are prepared to support Health, Safety, and Security problems that arise. The exercise will run participants through a series of issues and incidents using a Table Top scenario that will help them understand their own levels of preparedness and what refinements are needed. The country is imaginary but the tools to conduct such an assessment are real and have real-life application in today’s shifting world that forces us all to be on top of managing risk and supporting our faculty, staff, and students abroad. This Table Top activity continues where the Basic training started but is open to all – reviewing preparedness through simulation will lead to positive improvements and outcomes as we work the situations together and learn from each other.

Learning Objectives
At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:
» Demonstrate increased awareness of your institution’s risk appetite
» Develop an action plan to implement at the home campus to enhance their institution’s ability to support students in the event of a crisis
» Identify internal resources on campus to engage in response to an Health, Safety or Security issue
» Identify external resources to assist in an Health, Safety or Security issue
» Enhance Risk Assessment skills and risk response capabilities

Workshop Location: Hotel Arts Barcelona
Registration Fee: $0
*This workshop is free of charge, but there are limited spots available. Registration for the workshop is first-come, first-served.
