Risk Management


The District is a member of the Statewide Association of Community Colleges (SWACC), a joint authority made up of community colleges joined together for the purpose of pooling or self-funding property and liability coverage.

Injury & Illness Prevention Program

The District is firmly committed to maintaining a safe and healthful working environment for all District employees.  As part of this commitment, the District has established, implemented and maintains an Injury & Illness Prevention Program (IIPP), as required under California Code of Regulations, Title 8, Section 3202. The IIPP specifies responsibilities and general procedures to protect employees and reduce accidents and injuries.  It consists of the following elements: Responsibilities, Communication, Compliance, Hazard Identification, Accident Investigation, Hazard Correction, Training and Documentation.

Contracts and Certificates of Insurance

Prior to using off-campus facilities for special events, classes and seminars, the owner of the facility often requests the District to supply them with a certificate of insurance naming their organization or company as additional insured. The sponsoring department may obtain the certificate of insurance by completing a Request for Coverage form found under the Documents Tab, and returning to Monet.Payton@wvm.edu for submission.  Please allow 3-5 business days for processing.
