Risk and Safety Management

Risk and Safety Management

The Risk Management and Safety Office is located in the Department of Human Resources.The Office provides oversight and protection of Commission assets through purchase of insurance, contractual transfer of risk, program and operational analysis, mitigation of insured losses, loss prevention and related program and policy development to minimize risk and loss potential.This Office is also charged with developing and implementing the Commission’s safety and health programs to reduce accidents and injuries through training, inspections and regulatory compliance.

Insurance programs

The Commission participates in the Montgomery County Self-Insurance Program (the “Program”) for the purpose of economic pooling of risks and resources.The Program provides the Commission with insurance coverage for workers’ compensation (Maryland State mandatory limits), comprehensive general liability, automobile coverage (first and third-party claims), professional liability, property and fire damage, boiler and machinery damage, data processing systems breakdown and blanket crime coverage.

The Commission has, in addition to the self-insurance coverage, further liability and property loss coverage through the direct purchase of commercial policies for claims arising out of the operation of a public airport, and loss or damage to antiques and other specific items of personal property.The Commission also has public official bond coverage for its public officials.

  • Training in OSHA/MOSH compliance
  • Safety and accident prevention consulting services
  • Review all Commission contracts for contractor insurance compliance
