BASS and the SAM Risk Manager

A sexual abuse and misconduct (SAM) risk manager is not, currently, a common role. For several reasons discussed in “BASS and the SAM Risk Manager”, this is changing.

The BASS application you are going to be using is designed to help organizations transition from a compliance to a risk management approach to protecting children. Research has found that risk management is more effective than compliance at preventing negative events.

The application enables anyone, even if you have no previous risk management experience and are working with an organization that has limited risk management resources, to manage SAM risk like an expert.

In three steps, you will:

  1. assess your club’s SAM risk
  2. customize a SAM risk management system based on the unique nature of your club and its SAM risks, and
  3. manage your club’s SAM risk like an expert over the long term.
