Loss control consultants provide a wide range of services to cities, including general and specialized liability assistance. They also provide assistance regarding employee health and safety programs.
Consultants provide general assistance in evaluating a city’s practices and overall liability to include on-site assistance on police, fire, and employment liability. This complements guidance from the League’s HR & Benefits staff, LMCIT employment attorneys, and public safety project coordinator.
Employee Health & Safety
LMCIT consultants work with your city to reduce employee injuries. A five-year workers’ compensation loss analysis identifies trends, and guides efforts toward addressing common trends such as sprains and strains, slips, trips, and falls, and working on and around equipment. Using an aggregate analysis, consultants can compare your city to cities in the area, cities with similar populations, and cities with similar operations.
Sanitary Sewer Survey
This includes a detailed system evaluation and provides best practices for policy, maintenance, and inspection. These evaluations are an excellent place to start when making short- and long-term decisions about the sanitary sewer system.
Property and Vacant/Abandoned Building Survey
A property survey involves a walk-through of the buildings to make recommendations on how the city can reduce potential property and liability exposures. This survey includes areas such as fire safety, Life Safety Code, and general liability. Vacant and abandoned properties pose both public and attractive nuisance exposures and can lead to unexpected property loss of metals such as copper and subsequent damage to the building.
Special Event Reviews
Consultants provide on-site loss control assistance for special events, including fireworks, parades, celebrations, and festivals.
Fleet Safety Assistance
This detailed survey addresses best practices for fleet operations from transit to maintenance vehicles.
