The Risk Consultation Unit works with agency executives, key managers, Safety Advisors and Risk Coordinators to help them establish effective safety and risk management systems within their agencies. These systems are designed to enable agencies to:
- Identify real and potential risks
- Analyze those risks
- Mitigate risk exposures (through the development of loss control programs)
The Risk Consultants primarily focus on exposures covered by the self-insurance fund. This minimizes public funds diverted to pay for loss. By addressing risks associated with employee injury, tort liability and property assets, the Risk Consultation Unit assists agencies in maximizing funds for operations and services.
