Discus topic 2: research the role of an administrator in contrast to
Administrators are responsible for holding all staff members accountable to the organization’s policies and procedures related to risk management. They also have the authority to make changes as needed, including establishing new protocols or implementing corrective action when necessary. Non-management staff members typically do not have decision-making authority in terms of changing policy; they must carry out the guidelines set forth by administrators.
Administrators are ultimately responsible for ensuring that incident reports are accurately completed and submitted on time, that investigations into any incidents are conducted in a timely manner, and that proper disciplinary action is taken when appropriate. In addition, administrators oversee training programs for staff related to risk management such as ADA awareness or workers’ compensation protocol so that all employees understand their roles regarding these areas.
