Risk Management

The Risk Management Group must continue to deliver benefits to employees, expeditiously investigate claims, protect the county's assets, and continue to offer necessary assistance to other centers to protect the health and welfare of our employees.

It is imperative that the above be performed fairly and at a reasonable cost.

The most effective means to reduce losses and expenses is with safety awareness, training and inspections. This is an area of the group that is constantly reinforced and pays dividends in reduced losses and severity.
