Primex3 Recognition of Risk Management Excellence (PRIME3)

The PRIME3 program, designed to assist Primex3 members to improve risk management performance, is an important component of our comprehensive service approach. PRIME3 outlines ten Risk Management Best Practices that, when implemented, will assist members to establish a risk management culture within their organization, and also demonstrate their commitment to being a responsible member of the Primex3 public entity risk pool. A key element of the PRIME3 program encourages members to establish, and then meet, risk management improvement goals that are specific to their needs. As the goals are met and risk management performance improves we will provide appropriate recognition.

Dealing with Sexual Harassment

Dealing with Sexual Harassment in the Workplace will look at the many aspects of sexual harassment and hostile work environments. What may constitute sexual harassment or a hostile work environment, how the changing workforce and workplace lends itself to the potential of inappropriate behaviors and the roles of elected officials, managers, supervisors and employees in fostering/maintaining attitudes which discourage harassment and hostility in the workplace are addressed. Learn the steps you need to take to protect your employees and the workplace from liability.
