The Risk Management Division manages programs in the areas of employee safety, loss prevention, property, casualty, and employee benefits and wellness.
Risk Management attempts to protect the City’s physical and financial assets against loss by maintaining effective insurance programs, minimizing the City’s exposure to risk, providing for appropriate reserve levels, funding incurred liabilities, and providing for the proper cost allocation of incurred losses among City departments.
Risk Management also provides internal investigation services for the City on claims arising out of automobile, general, police, professional, and employment practices liability exposures. In addition, Risk Management monitors the workers’ compensation and employee health benefit programs being handled by third party administrators.
