The Risk Management Plan identifies the departments and functions of St. Mary’s University that have high-risk processes and/or materials in their normal operations that may impact environmental health and safety of the campus. The Plan provides the risk rating of the area before and after mitigation.

Pre-mitigation Risk Ratings are assigned based on the potential injury to personnel or impact to the environment if no controls were in effect. Post-mitigation risk ratings take into account the implementation and compliance to the mitigations listed. The assignment of risk ratings are as follows: H – Risk is high; M – Risk is moderate; and L – Risk is low.

The Plan shall be reviewed periodically to revise the risks, risk ratings, and/or mitigations as processes and materials change. Post-mitigation risk ratings should be no greater than “M” (moderate).
