Monitoring & Oversight

Monitoring and OversightMonitoring and Oversight serves as an all-encompassing element of the 5-Part Safety System.

Often, an all-too-familiar scenario plays out when an organization encounters child sexual abuse. Leaders see risk, act to address the risk (whether effectively or not) and then move on to the next pressing issue. Interest or concern wanes, and with it the organization’s zeal for ensuring that protective measures continue to occur.

Preventing child sexual abuse cannot be a momentary conviction. Monitoring and Oversight, an essential element of the 5-Part Safety System, supports successful execution of Sexual Abuse Awareness Training, the Skillful Screening Process, Policies and Procedures and Background Checks.

Abuse Prevention Systems provides organizations with integrated tools supporting ongoing execution of the 5-Part Safety System.

Periodic review of your Safety System

From a liability standpoint, the only scenario worse than no protective measures in place is protective measures that are not being utilized. Periodically, leaders should review Safety System elements, including Policies and Procedures, to ensure relevance. If policies are no longer relevant to the needs of the program, they should be updated. When new programs are added, policies must be modified to address possible new risk in these programs.

Control Panel assists in Monitoring and Oversight

Abuse Prevention Systems provides an online Control Panel that tracks all elements of the 5-Part Safety System. The Control Panel allows an administrator to monitor and track Sexual Abuse Awareness Training and Background Checks, and can be set up with multiple access points to ensure smooth transition when an administrator leaves the program.
