Risk Management and Loss Control Services

A key component of reducing workers' compensation costs is avoiding accidents in the first place.  Our team of in-house, risk management professionals works closely with members to create a safer work environment.  Our risk managers are available to attend scheduled board and safety committee meetings to discuss available risk management services, review individual members’ losses and present loss control recommendations. 

The Comp Alliance has developed a comprehensive risk management plan to help its members get the most from our loss control services.  We offer regional trainings for state or federal mandate training, individualized training on issues that are driving losses, workplace inspections and assistance with the establishment and operation of safety committees.
