The Risk Management / Loss Control Program provides members with specific and individual assistance with establishing and implementing comprehensive Health and Safety and Emergency Preparedness plans. The Risk Management portion of the program offers techniques for continuous and proactive identification, analysis, and evaluation of activities that lead to losses. The Health and Safety Plan outlines the policies and procedures for municipal work environments, including detailed Job Hazard Analyses, Training Timelines, Department Inspection Forms, and Document Retention recommendations.

The Loss Control portion of the program focuses on the reduction of the frequency and severity of loss, and includes safety audits, inspections, and on-site consultation for Workers' Compensation, Vehicle program, and Property program participants.
