2024 Risk Control Service Plan Highlights

**New addition** Job Hazard Analysis (JHA)

Sedgwick Risk Control Services is performing a JHA study on a targeted job classification group (i.e., Maintenance Operations) to identify high-risk tasks and conduct on-site job observations and interviews at targeted sites. The study will be used to focus risk control efforts and develop reports and training plans tailored to the job classification group for targeted members. The general findings and best practices will be presented at the Risk Management Committee and Executive Committee meetings.

Virtual Safety Manager Program (VSM)

The program is a safety training learning management system and recordkeeping service that identifies Cal/OSHA employee training requirements, assigns training to employees, utilizes LMS features, and provides comprehensive management reports through the Vector Solutions platform, which is a member benefit of access to Public Risk Innovation, Solutions, and Management (PRISM). CHWCA provides this program to members at no additional cost. For more information, please visit our VSM webpage.

Workplace Violence Prevention Plan and Senate Bill 553

Sedgwick Risk Control Services developed a recorded training video to provide members with a guide to understanding Senate Bill 553 and how to develop and implement their workplace violence prevention plan. Other resources related to SB 553 can be found in the member portal. We recommend viewing past webinars hosted by CHWCA such as the Workplace Violence Webinar Series (2021) presented by Alvarez Associates and ACI Specialty Benefits Webinar Series (2022).

Workplace Violence Prevention Webinar Series

CHWCA members deal with a diverse client base and sometimes work in remote locations that can lead to working under stressful and confrontational situations. If employees are not adequately trained to recognize and deal with these situations in a positive manner, these situations could escalate to dangerous levels. Providing employees with additional training and resources to recognize and handle these situations could greatly improve their working conditions.

CHWCA has partnered with Alvarez Associates, a leader in workplace violence prevention recognition and training, to present this webinar series.  Each webinar will be broadcast live and recorded so you can use them for training your employees at a later date. All videos are password protected. Please contact Katie Sullivan (katie.sullivan@sedgwick.com) for password and/or technical assistance.
