View Report

Safety & Risk Management (Risk), a department within the City Attorney’s Office, manages the City’s self-insurance fund, and administers safety, loss prevention, insurance, contractual risk transfer, and claims administration programs. Risk exists to organizationally reduce and mitigate the human and financial impact of operational and employee accidents and losses.

Our audit found that:

  • Identification of safety risk exposures could be improved by formalizing a facility inspection program and more comprehensive reviews of job hazards;
  • Improvements to workers’ compensation claims, emergency planning and employee engagement could strengthen employee safety programs; and
  • Data could be leveraged to further assess the effectiveness of safety programs and the allocation of resources.

The department agrees with the findings and intends to complete the recommendations by November 2024.
