Risk Management & Employee Benefits



Risk Management is comprised of four functional areas, including Employee Benefits, Workers’ Compensation, Employee Safety, and Property/Liability Insurances.

The Benefits Department oversees employee benefits for active and retired employees, including but not limited to medical, dental, vision, basic life insurance, retiree plans, COBRA continuation, and various voluntary benefit programs such as disability, optional life insurance, and Flexible Spending Accounts.

The Workers’ Compensation Department oversees the District’s self-insured workers compensation program. The main purpose is to assist employees who have been injured on the job by assuring they receive proper medical care if needed, assure proper application of any mandated workers’ compensation benefits, and help to safely return injured employees to their regular job functions.

The Safety Department provides consultation and assistance to all District departments in their efforts to provide a safe work environment through proper safety program materials, access to safety training resources, site inspections, and ensuring compliance with local, state, and federal agency regulations.

The Property and Liability Program is designed to protect the District's assets and financial well-being through a varied and complex system of self-insurance and excess/reinsurance provided through a variety of Joint Powers Authorities and insurance carriers.
