Loss Prevention Overview
The Trust is committed to a state-of-the-art risk management partnership with its Members. Our specialized loss prevention programs and risk management services are designed to specifically address the unique and ever-evolving concerns and problems faced by local government today. Through highly responsive, and effective risk management, our Members receive proactive assistance in reducing claims which ultimately leads to lower premium levels.
The Trust truly understands that each Member’s needs are unique and has a wide breadth of knowledge and expertise regarding the public sector. We know full well the great value of continually reaching out to our Members and taking the time to listen. As a result, our range of programs and services is broad and custom tailored to help Members keep their employees and communities safe and their claims and losses at a minimum.
Loss Prevention is Key
The emphasis on loss prevention has been proven to help reduce the severity and frequency of loss. Trust Loss Prevention Programs and Services highlight the many specific safety training programs available to all Trust Members, often without very little or no cost. In addition to training programs, The Trust Loss Prevention Department also provides resources to address the prevention of property, liability, and workers' compensation losses. This includes the implementation of a formal, integrated loss prevention program which includes field consultation and risk management services that can be custom-designed for each Member. The Trust also provides a multi-media library on safety issues, risk management bulletins, and quarterly newsletters. It is our hope that these programs will provide education and training to help employees lead healthier and safer lifestyles.
Make Safety a Priority
The Trust Loss Prevention staff assists our Members with the development of a safety policy statement that we believe is key to a successful risk management program. In addition, managing safety includes the setting of performance goals and the development of an internal Member Safety Committee. Member Safety Committees, typically composed of representatives from various departments, are charged with the responsibility of regularly assessing the Member's current loss trends (with regular input from The Trust's Loss Prevention Staff), promoting safety, and recommending important new loss prevention measures which should be implemented. It is at this "on-site" level that effective risk management practices begin and ultimately flourish.
