Safety is a large part of any company and a necessary component of a business plan. As a result, so is loss control. Loss control is a risk management technique that aims to reduce the possibility that a loss will occur and to reduce the severity of the losses that do occur. Every company can benefit from risk assessment, planning, prevention, and workplace safety products. This is where a loss control program comes into play.
A good loss control program should reduce or eliminate the potential for injuries or fatalities on farms by controlling existing and or emerging workplace exposures.
This includes hazard identification and implementing effective controls for the exposures identified is key to accident and injury prevention. Loss control in any organization is achieved through commitments of all personnel in the organization. It emphasizes safety procedures and practices, training and monitoring.
Loss control systems include the following:
- Implementation of loss control policy
- Assignment of duties and responsibilities
- Review of claims data
- Audits and inspections
- Accident reporting and investigation
- Communications Development and review of emergency and contingency plans
A loss control program can help reduce claims and losses through safety and risk management information and services. It can also help to reduce the severity of accidents that do happen. This program will allow you to provide a safe environment for employees and reduce the interruptions to your work and services provided to the public.
