Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance, v86 n3 p32-36 2015
Injuries may occur more often in physical education due to the nature of the activities taught. Because of this, the issue of negligence is an important concern. Risk management is one method physical educators use to decrease the occurrence of injuries and negligence. The purpose of this article is to introduce a Risk Management Inventory that was developed for public school physical educators to measure risk in the areas of equipment and facilities, supervision, instruction, emergency and medical procedures, and administrative behaviors. Learning through observation and modeling, risk management inventory development, and the validity of the Inventory will be discussed.
