Core Services and Customized Solutions

We’ve found that nearly 50% of the total claim frequency and 75% of lost time claim costs in higher education originate from slips & falls and strains driven primarily from custodial and housekeeping operations. In consultation with our brokers, we assist clients in controlling these loss areas and other targeted exposures beginning with a collaborative Risk Management Assessment that includes:

  • Analyzing your actual losses to uncover leading historical trends that could point to future losses and potential loss sources with serious severity implications
  • Evaluating your current risk management practices, campus environment, health & safety programs, and training initiatives against industry best practices and compliance standards. We identify improvement opportunities in areas such as employee selection and hiring, orientation/ongoing safety training, accident reporting and investigation, effective safety committees, safety self-assessments and transitional duty.
  • Providing onsite consultation and hazard assessments
