The primary initiative of WMMIC’s Loss Control Plan is to assist the membership with identifying and managing hazards and loss exposures specific to Wisconsin municipalities.
The intended outcome of the plan is to:
- Reduce the number of reported losses,
- Mitigate claim damages, and
- Avoid reoccurrence of similar future claims.
Through effective claims management and the close monitoring of the frequency and severity of reported claims, WMMIC serves its members by identifying significant loss exposures and communicating any areas of concern. WMMIC utilizes professional risk assessments, contracted training resources, on-line and in-person education programs, member sharing/discussion and continued staff development and training.
By providing these effective risk management tools and staying up-to-date on industry claim trends, new case law and legislation, WMMIC continues to demonstrate its sincere commitment to its members and their communities.
Jail Loss Control
With the ever increasing populations our jails face. WMMIC is committed to working on this specific risk our members face in this area. In 2010, WMMIC began a targeted jail audit program which just completed this summer after five years of special attention. The project involved a contractor auditing each of the jails with a tour and providing a report to WMMIC and the member on their exposures along with recommendations.
