Risk Management and Insurance



Even with the utmost care, some risks are inherent in the operation of the University of Texas - Pan American. UTPA's health, safety, and security programs are essential for reducing the risks of accidental injury to people and damage to property. The Department of Environmental Health and Safety is responsible for organizing, coordinating, and carrying out programs to control the risks to which departments and, ultimately, The University are exposed. Departments may identify a new program, activity or an existing program with potential risks which could decrease their department's (and, hence, UTPA's) resources as a result of loss or injury. DEHS will assist departments in developing programs to handle those risks. When insurance becomes necessary, DEHS secures all commercial insurance coverage through the University of Texas - System. If necessary, accounting documents are processed and charged to the appropriate budget.
