Safety and Loss Control

Customized Loss Prevention and Loss Control Service

Loss prevention and loss control are in everyone’s interests, insured and carrier alike. As a service to our customers, Union Standard offers a comprehensive Loss Control program to help identify and eliminate potential problems that could result in expensive claims and costly business interruptions. The result is truly a win-win situation.

This is no cookie cutter approach. We base each case on the unique needs of our customers, within the lines of business insurance we provide. Using industry consensus standards, codes and best practices as benchmarks, we base our recommendations on proven techniques that are helping businesses of similar types and sizes nationwide.

Our skilled professionals develop solutions that help create a positive environment in our customers’ businesses that reduce specific risks or eliminate them altogether. Whether the task is a comprehensive survey of overall business environment or a specific job process study, we measure our success in terms of customer profitability and success, not ours.

Controlling workplace accidents and injuries is always among our customers’ highest priorities. Beyond the individual personal losses, each accident and "near miss" could waste precious human and financial resources and introduce inefficiencies into our business operations.

We offer the following services to all our customers, regardless of the size or complexity of their businesses:

• Initial comprehensive loss control survey to help identify and evaluate potential safety
  and health-loss-producing exposures.

• Evaluation of Loss Prevention or Safety program

• Specific hazard evaluations

• Periodic summaries of claims activities with an analysis of causes, as needed or requested.

• Follow-up service visits to monitor progress in reducing or eliminating loss producing exposures.

• Ongoing loss control services to provide professional products and services tailored to your unique
  needs that help develop or enhance your current safety culture.
