Claims Roundtable: The Governance of Risk: Loss Control as the First Line of Defense in Claims Litigation
Thursday, March 21, 2019 | East Rutherford, NJ

A loss control program governs the internal means, methods and daily safety operations followed by utility company employees. Consequently, a sound loss control program frequently stands as the first line of defense in preventing claims and litigation.

This roundtable will focus on building and following sound loss control practices and procedures for utility companies. AEGIS’ Loss Control Division studies and analyzes the internal procedures of utilities and will discuss the mitigation assessment process, as well as comprehensive recommendations for best daily practices on topics such as call center operations, protocols for technical personnel and general field safety training. We will also discuss the role of loss control in public safety and consumer awareness. Finally, we will engage in a case study comparison of litigation results with differing qualities of loss control programs.
