Risk Control Services

The Risk Management Department is committed to providing efficient, valued resources and assistance to enable members to effectively identify, analyze and control risks.

AMLJIA Risk Control Services staff, along with all AMLJIA departments, will work with your staff to complete a thorough review of your community’s unique exposure to loss. The result is an insurance plan designed to decrease claims and coverage costs. Personalized service and individual attention to each community is what you can expect from the AMLJIA. But those aren’t the only benefits.

Conferences

The AMLJIA provides members with regional and on-site training programs in a wide variety of loss prevention topics. Frequently requested topics include Sexual Harassment Awareness, OSHA required training, Employment Related Practices, School In-Service, Public Entity Risk Management and much more.

On-Site Training

The AMLJIA sponsors workshops and seminars, at the Alaska Municipal League’s Annual Local Government Conference, and at other times throughout the year. Watch for notice of the Annual AMLJIA Public Entity Risk Management Seminar and Law Enforcement Management Institute held in the Spring.

We are happy to do an in-service training session for your entity. Sessions focus on safety and risk management topics of interest to our members. We want to serve your needs, call us if you have a special area of interest.

Site Review & property Appraisals

Members may request a comprehensive on-site evaluation and review of all entity operations and properties by AMLJIA risk control specialists. A formal report, complete with photos and loss control recommendations, identifies potential hazards and reasonable solutions.

Accurate values means full protection for your buildings. AMLJIA’s no-cost appraisal service takes the worry out of proper coverage and correct valuation. Through on-site, thorough reviews of each building, and final review by a certified appraisal service, your buildings will be properly protected at full replacement cost.

Online Training

The AMLJIA Online University is open 24/7 to any member with a computer access. This free service provides access to a variety of safety and human resource courses, from defensive driving and office safety to effective supervisory skills. AMLJIA also provides periodic live online web training.

Drivers’ Packets

Protecting your entity when an accident occurs is an important part of risk management. To help you in case of an automobile accident, the AMLJIA has developed drivers’ envelopes with instructions on what to do. These drivers’ packets should be kept in the glove compartment of your vehicles for use after an accident. Collecting information at the scene is an important tool for remembering exactly what happened. Consider supplementing these packets with disposable cameras.

Technical Assistance

The AMLJIA risk control specialists will answer your questions on how to reduce the liability of your operations. Our risk control specialists are constantly keeping appraised of the current risk management issues of interest to our membership. If you are thinking about doing something new, or just want to improve the way you are already doing something, give us a call. There is no reason to reinvent the wheel!
