Courses include specific learning objectives, excellent content, engaging graphics, frequent interactivity, and content mastery quizzes.

The system can also allow you to streamline your background screening efforts and training initiatives in one place.

Download Model Policies

As a Beazley Insured, you have access to model policies that set the stage for safe environments by defining acceptable and unacceptable employee and volunteer conduct. Policies also facilitate effective monitoring and supervision by helping others to recognise and take action when they see policy violations.

Download the Screening & Selection Toolkit

The most comprehensive package of its kind, our Screening and Selection Toolkit comes complete with resources your organization needs to effectively screen employees and caregivers, including “red flag” indicators for identifying high-risk applicants and hundreds of examples of high- and low-risk applicant responses.

Download the Crisis Response Toolkit

Praesidium’s Crisis Response Toolkit for insureds includes written resources and guidance to navigate crisis response before, during, and after an allegation.  This toolkit provides guidelines for assembling a crisis response team; considerations for the first few days and weeks; how to create a transparent, victim-centred response; sample media holding statements; sample community communications for participants and families; and other response considerations. Your Beazley policy may include a crisis response process which will be triggered via the reporting process under the policy.

Praesidium Helpline

The Praesidium Helpline gives your organisational leadership team a confidential mechanism to discuss concerns or allegations involving sexual abuse and receive support to navigate the next steps. The information discussed during the call will not be shared with your insurance carrier and does not constitute the reporting of a claim.

If you think you have experienced an incident or if you have a claim, you will need to contact Beazley.

Who is Praesidium?  

Praesidium is the national leader in abuse risk management of sexual abuse of vulnerable populations. With more than 30 years of experience and serving thousands of clients, our dedicated team of researchers, attorneys, social workers, and human resources professionals have analysed thousands of cases of abuse and synthesised the latest scientific research. We know how abuse happens in organisations and, more importantly, how to prevent it.

How does Praesidium help organisations manage the risk of abuse?  

Praesidium uses a systems-based approach created from the scientific research of thousands of reported incidents of abuse. This analysis identified that the root causes of incidents fall into one or more of the eight organisational operations that comprise Praesidium’s Safety Equation®. We help our clients implement best-practice standards in each of the eight operations to close gaps, decrease risks, and create safer environments within their organisations.
