All state agencies in Louisiana are required to implement a loss prevention program to reduce or eliminate the risks of doing business. The ultimate goal is to create a safe work environment and an awareness of safety practices among employees in order to prevent accidents that cause injury or death to employees or the public and to prevent damage to public property. Through CQIS the Office of Juvenile Justice monitors, reviews and audits the agency’s loss prevention program for compliance with requirements set forth by the Office of Risk Management’s Loss Prevention Unit.
Loss Prevention Program:
The Office of Risk Management was created during the 1980 Session of the Louisiana Legislature (R.S. 39:1527-44) amended and reenacted in 1992, 1998, and 1999 to ensure a safe a healthful environment and work conditions for all employees of state government. The Loss Prevention Unit is an entity within the Office of Risk Management specifically created by legislation to assist state agencies in the prevention and reduction of employee job-related accidents, injuries, and property losses.
Components of OJJ's Loss Prevention Program:
- General Safety
- Equipment Management
- Driver Safety
- Bonds and Crime
All secure care facilities and regional field offices have an annual recertification/compliance review. The official Office of Risk Management compliance review audit is conducted every three years.
