What is loss control insurance?

Lost control insurance helps your business mitigate your business’s operational risks. It’s a risk management technique that aims to reduce the possibility of a loss for your business and minimize the damage of loss should something bad happen.

The goal of loss control strategies and measures is to help policyholders reduce the number of claims they need to file in the event of an insured peril. It also helps insurance companies take on less risk and reduce the number of losses they have.

What are the two types of loss in insurance?

The goal of insurance is to help you reduce the amount of loss you have in the event of a claim. There are two types of loss in insurance that a policyholder might face:

  • The loss of assets from damages that are listed under the terms of an insurance policy
  • The loss of assets from a pure risk

In the event of an insured peril or pure risk, policyholders might face property loss, legal liability loss, and financial loss.

What are loss control procedures?

There are six loss control procedures to reduce the chance or severity of risks

  • Avoidance is to prevent the loss by avoiding the risk completely.
  • Prevention is a series of measures implemented to reduce the chance of a loss.
  • Reduction measures are applied to reduce the severity of loss from a risk.
  • Separation measures isolate loss exposures to reduce the impact of loss from a single event.
  • Duplication means keeping backups and extra copies of important information and assets in case they are needed.
  • Diversification refers to the spread of loss exposure over a variety of products, markets, and services.

These strategies can help you reduce the exposure you have to various risks, reduce the severity of loss arising from these risks, and help you prepare to respond to loss.

What is the difference between loss control and loss prevention?

They have the same meaning essentially. Loss control refers to measures implemented to control the damage of a risk from creating a lot of loss or spreading to other areas of the business. Loss prevention refers to measures implemented to reduce the severity of a loss.
