Risk Management is the systematic process of managing an organization's risk exposures to achieve its objectives in a manner consistent with public interest, human safety, environmental factors, and the law. It consists of the planning, organizing, leading, coordinating, and controlling activities undertaken with the intent of providing an efficient pre-loss plan that minimizes the adverse impact of risk on the campus's physical and financial resources.
The University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center Office of Enterprise Risk Management is an important part of Administration and Finance, serving the Oklahoma City and Tulsa Campuses. The Office of Risk Management is charged with developing, coordinating, and recommending risk management programs, policies, and procedures in loss prevention, property, and casualties to include on-campus accidents and injuries. The office is further responsible for the processing of claims and submission of all required reports. The office conducts business in accordance with the State of Oklahoma Office of Management and Enterprise Services Policies, as well as the Risk Management Division Rules and Regulations.
The Office of Risk Management works closely with Campus Police, Fire Marshal, Legal Counsel, Environmental Health and Safety offices, and others.
