The Risk Management Office provides protection from accidental losses arising out of the County’s General Government and Public Schools operations. The office is responsible for the management of the self-insurance reserve, administration of workers’ compensation, auto, property and liability claims, loss prevention, safety training, and environmental management.
Protection is provided through a combination of self-insurance, purchased insurance, and risk transfer mechanisms. Administrative support is provided to the Executive Safety Committee and the Accident Review Board. The safety staff provides training and guidance to all County agencies and Henrico County Public Schools to ensure compliance with state and federal regulations. The environmental coordinator provides administration for the County’s environmental program, including the communication of policy, program implementation, and employee awareness training.
Risk Management can only pay claims for which the County Government and Public Schools are legally liable.
