Session 1 - Ophea - Concussion Protocols
Recent media coverage has focused on the long term impact of concussions on professional athletes, and the growing body of research seems to be pointing to links to mental illness and brain diseases in later years. Childhood concussions can occur from many different school activities, including school sports and free play. This workshop will focus on recognizing where the concussion risks are in a school environment, how to recognize the visible signs of a concussion and the Ophea response protocol that is recommended for students who experience this condition.

Session 2 - Principals & Risk Management Issues
As more new principals take responsibility for running Ontario schools each year, the question arises whether the risk management knowledge provided to them is adequate to address the safety and security of the students in a modern school setting. The content of this session is based on a research paper written by the presenter, Tim Robins (Durham Catholic District School Board) as part of his Masters of Education program, and explores the need to equip new principals with the risk management skill set necessary in an increasingly complex educational environment.

Session 1 - Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design
Each year, schools across Ontario are the targets of vandalism, arson, break/enter, and other criminal acts totalling millions of dollars in losses. Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) is a program that focuses on using the building design and the landscape features of the premises itself to act as a determent factor for criminal activity. This workshop will provide a brief overview and history of the program, and will discuss the various CPTED strategies that can be used by school boards as one method to reduce exposure to property losses caused by criminal activity on school premises.

Session 2 - Community Use of Schools
Increasing the use of school facilities after hours is a wonderful opportunity for the community but, at what cost? Under Occupiers' Liability we are responsible for ensuring premises and equipment are in a reasonably safe condition. Being risk aware can allow you to make informed decisions about the nature of activities that are suitable for your schools, and the basic steps you can take to manage those risks. After participating in this session we are sure you will go back to your boards with a clearer understanding and be more cognizant of the Risk Management culture that is necessary when it comes to afterhours use.
