Safety and Risk Management

Our Mission

The Blinn College District’s Office of Safety and Risk Management falls under the leadership of the Blinn College District Police Department - and in support of - Blinn College District’s mission of providing quality, comprehensive education, and empowering students to achieve excellence in their educational careers and personal goals. The Office of Safety and Risk Management seeks to develop and implement effective solutions through the Unified Campus Safety Program (UCSP), which promotes healthy and safe operations on all Blinn College District campuses; protects students, faculty, staff, and visitors; promotes an "attitude and culture of safety", meets and exceeds regulatory compliance standards; and efficiently manages foreseeable hazards and risk.

Our Goals

The Blinn College District’s Unified Campus Safety Program (UCSP) is a singular institutional safety and risk management initiative designed to provide centralized administrative oversight to a wide variety of safety related processes, procedures, and controls across multiple district departments and several independent locations. The goals of the UCSP are accomplished by:

  • Facilitating the Risk Management Process, which includes identifying and categorizing risk and hazards, analyzing and assessing the impact of the risk, evaluating the identified risk in terms of “priority” and “acceptability,” treatment of the risk, and actively monitoring and reviewing of the chosen course of action.
  • Providing quality safety education and training to Blinn College District students, faculty, staff, and the community in a professional and responsive manner.
  • Identifying opportunities to continuously improve Blinn College District campus and residential hall safety while promoting an "attitude and culture of safety."
  • Developing policies, procedures, processes, and action plans that specifically address safety, environmental compliance, and emergency response.
  • Always seeking to understand and respond to the specific needs and priorities of the Blinn College District community.
