RISK MANAGEMENT SERVICES BY SUMMIT

For many businesses and nonprofit organizations, risk management begins and ends with insurance. While there are many other crucial aspects of effective risk management, insurance is a critical tool to protect against large losses. As an independent insurance agency, Summit maintains contracts with top national carriers and maintains state of the art software programs that allow us to administer those policies effectively and affordable. Summit can help with strategies for:
• Workers’ Compensation
• Casualty Insurance
• Property Insurance
While insurance is critical when there is a loss, it is no substitute for good loss prevention. Summit’s team of experience safety manager and risk assessors can help identify likely areas of loss and help design effective programs to affordably minimize the likelihood of a loss actually occurring. Summit can assist your organization with strategies for:
• Cost Analysis
• Safety Plans
• OSHA Compliance
Few parts of risk management are overlooked as frequently as disaster planning. While many organizations may never go through a large-scale disaster, those that do can face entire business failure if they are not adequately prepared. Summit’s team of advisors and agents can assist in the development of compliance strategies for:
• Risk Assessments
• Employee Training
• Plan Development
