Loss prevention isn't just operational. It's cultural. Successfully implementing a loss prevention program requires an understanding of safety practices, a commitment to your employees' well-being, and a dedication to making safety not just a practice, but a way of thinking.
So how can you put a loss prevention plan into action? It's really quite simple.
- Contact your independent insurance agent to discuss your needs. Your agent will then contact your underwriter or our Loss Prevention staff. If needed, a Loss Prevention representative will contact you to schedule an appointment to visit your business.
- During your meeting, West Bend's Loss Prevention rep will review your business' current safety practices with you and/or your safety staff, and if needed, work with you to coordinate a more advanced safety effort. Our goal is to help you develop a culture of safety in your organization which includes improving safety behaviors and implementing engineering controls for exposures, among other things.
- With the help of West Bend's loss prevention rep, you and/or your safety professionals will implement the plan. Using a consultative approach, we'll help you develop a culture of safety using a number of safety practices, including engineering controls, machine guarding, accident investigation, process improvement, and more.
- If safety training for your employees is needed, your West Bend loss prevention rep can help with that training or provide you with training materials.
