Assessment Process

Acadia Risk Services looks at risk management as not only risks associated with accidental losses, but also financial, strategic, operational, and other risks. We work with organizations to provide a framework for risk management, which typically involves identifying particular events or circumstances relevant to the organization’s objectives (risks and opportunities), assessing them in terms of likelihood and magnitude of impact, determining a response strategy, and monitoring progress.

Risk Assessment: The first step for managing the risks of your organization is the assessment process. Organizations can develop an effective program for managing risk only after properly assessing and analyzing their operations and risks. By identifying and proactively addressing risks and opportunities, Organizations can protect their assets and create greater safety for their members, employees, volunteers and communities.

Assessment Process: Our assessment process offers both electronic and on-site components. The risk assessment process incorporates the key elements, outlined in our service pages, for addressing risk for your organization.

Electronic Assessments – All assessment programs are initially conducted with our electronic model. Assessment model options include: nonprofit organization risk management assessment, aquatic safety assessment, day camp assessment, resident camp assessment, transportation program assessment, and youth protection assessment.

Onsite Assessments – Visits onsite include review of facilities, programs, staff interviews and emergency drills (optional). These visits can often be combined with training programs to offer a more customized and complete risk management service plan.

After the assessment process is complete, we partner with your organization in the development and implementation of a plan for strengthening practices at your organization. Goals in your plan are attained through regular email and phone support, progress review, resource development, on-site and online training programs.
