Risk Management


We strive to enhance the school communities of our members by embracing and supporting effective risk management strategies. Effective Risk Management allows you to take risks and reach your goals more efficiently and with less disruptions. MABE provides its members with options to manage these risks through a combination of tools including:

  • Review of historical loss analysis
  • Hazard identification and risk assessment
  • Risk retention
  • Risk avoidance
  • Risk transfer (through insurance or contractual vehicles)
  • Training to raise awareness
