If you want to develop a formal risk management system for your volunteer-based organization, or perhaps refine the system you have now, we have a resource for you. Managing Volunteer Risks — Where Are You Now? has 13 questions to help you evaluate how well you are analyzing tasks, screening and training volunteers, identifying safety hazards where they are assigned, and supervising volunteers. The three-page document also includes a checklist to help you eliminate the most common risks in volunteer engagement.

Managing Volunteer Risks — Where Are You Now? is one of nearly 100 risk management resources in the “VIS Vault” on this Website. VIS developed these resources based on the claims history — nearly 50 years now — of our volunteer insurance program. Topics in the “Vault” include injury prevention, vehicle safety (including a free online driver safety course), human resources issues related to volunteer engagement, insurance for nonprofit organizations, and more. All are available 24/7 to VIS members. Membership is only $25 a year.
Volunteers Insurance Service Association, Inc. (VIS) was established in 1972 for the purpose of providing insurance and risk management services for volunteer-based organizations. In addition to still providing these insurance services today on a nationwide scale, we have expanded to provide noninsurance resources for members to manage their risks and improve their operations. By transferring the volunteer risk exposure to our program, we can help you protect your organization. Contact us today at (800) 222-8920 for more information on our programs and services. Join now!
