Loss Control Services
Illinois school districts can look to WCSIT*ISDA for the most current information on workers’ compensation issues. Working with its service providers, WCSIT continuously searches for more cost effective ways to provide coverage. WCSIT*ISDA provides regular informative news via its Quarterly Newsletters. WCSIT*ISDA members also receive the Risk Control Bulletin from The Sandner Group - Claims Management with the latest information on safety and risk management news aimed at helping school districts reduce risk.
Staffed with loss control professionals located throughout the state, the loss control program offers exceptional loss control services to all members. Services such as evaluations of the school district’s current in-house safety/loss control programs, current and historic losses, as well as assistance in developing programs and procedures for self-inspection, forming safety committees, and evaluation of OSHA inspections are but a few of the loss control services provided to ISDA member districts. Team visits by The Sandner Group Agent, loss control specialist, and claims adjuster allow member districts to analyze trends in losses, plan for policies to mitigate future losses, and determine what risks they may face in the future, allowing the member to work with their Sandner Group Agent to coordinate coverages. In addition, ISDA members are invited to attend annual local seminars presented by the loss control staff, which address the main causes of property/casualty claims and necessary measures school districts can take to prevent them.
Loss control specialists throughout the state provide WCSIT*ISDA members with various loss control services. The loss control specialists are available to work with member districts to establish safety committees to empower school districts to proactively manage safety concerns. Team visits by The Sandner Group Agent, loss control specialist, and claims adjuster allow member districts to analyze trends in losses, plan for policies to mitigate future losses, and determine what risks they may face in the future. The members then work with their Sandner Group Agent to coordinate coverages. On-site safety inspections, loss control seminars and one of the most comprehensive loss control manuals currently available are but a few of the additional loss control services offered to members. The annual David Binotti Risk Management Award, given to a member district showing remarkable strides in its risk management efforts, demonstrates the effectiveness of these services.
