Serving Colorado's Counties

Loss Control

CTSI's Loss Control Department offers counties specialized training adapted to meet the needs and to limit the risks each county faces. CTSI’s Loss Control department demonstrates one of the benefits counties derive from pooling their resources. Few, if any, member counties would individually be able to afford the depth and breadth of loss control and safety expertise offered by CTSI's team of engineers, trainers, and problem solvers.

Risk management has evolved into a discipline that relies more on minimizing and controlling risks and losses and less on simply paying for claims as they occur. This is particularly true for governmental entities that have constantly changing and expanding exposures. 

Part of CTSI's mission is to keep member counties informed about new regulations issued by state and federal regulatory agencies. CTSI also keeps members up-to-date on innovative and effective management practices used in the public and private sector to reduce risks and cut losses. 

A Loss Control Specialist is assigned to each county, to help counties manage risk and provide training and risk management consultation. In addition, CTSI offers human resources consultations to aid counties in personnel management, as well as pre-loss legal services. Loss Control is the cornerstone for the success of the county-owned pools. CTSI provides members with timely technical updates, loss control classes, webinars, and a film and reference library designed to give members the tools they need to lower risk and control costs. 

CTSI unbundled services in 1997, allowing counties that aren't members of CAPP or CWCP to access CTSI's expertise on a fee-for-service basis. For more information, contact a CTSI Loss Control Specialist.
