The Risk Management Division identifies and evaluates risk and loss exposures the City faces involving its employees, property and citizens. The division then determines the most cost effective means of managing risk by integrating the following:
- Self Insurance: method used to administer and resolve routine, predictable claims such as auto accidents, slip and fall accidents and workers compensation claims.
- Commercial Insurance: procured for those exposures that could have significant adverse effect on the City’s finances, should an event occur.
- Loss Prevention (Safety)
- Risk Transfer Strategies (Contracted)
The Risk Management Division handles claims either internally or through the use of third party administrators.
Risk Management safety personnel are responsible for reducing injuries and property damage to both City employees and the general public. Safety workers conduct training courses, work site inspections and visit City facilities to ensure safe and secure facilities.
