CIRMA acts as a risk partner to our members, working with them to develop a risk management program tailored to their organization. As part of your membership, CIRMA provides professional risk management consulting, training, and tools to enable you to create a safer, more efficient workplace. CIRMA's approach is not prescriptive or restrictive; instead, we work with our members, coaching and providing them the tools and resources they need to help them make their organization's goals possible--the safest possible way.
As part of the CIRMA service team, a CIRMA risk management consultant will work with you to develop and implement a comprehensive risk management program that addresses your specific safety concerns. Your consultant will help you its members develop a risk management action plan that is data-driven to target loss drivers and help embed best practices into your organization. Our sophisticated analytics spot trends and provide powerful insight into the root causes of loss.
CIRMA Risk Management Consultants will review your risk management programs and make recommendations regarding coverage and risk transfer mechanisms, safety, administration, and risk control techniques. They will work with your entity to help you understand your exposures and loss history, then work with you to formulate a risk management plan to improve safety, lowering losses and reduce your total cost of risk.
Onsite consulting services include:
CIRMA provides Stewardship Reports to our Workers' Compensation members. These reports provide municipal and school leadership with the qualitative and quantitative information they need to develop and monitor their risk management action plans.
Each report contains:
CIRMA helps municipal and school leaders develop a consensus about their tolerance of risk; then we provide valuable context, expertise, and education to help them manage that risk. Context is provided through analysis of trends, both the member's individual loss history and analysis of changes in the larger legal and social environment. CIRMA's analytical systems provide our members a far richer, more detailed understanding of their operations and risk than traditional system that concentrate on claims history. CIRMA's analytical capabilities provide our members a view - as broad or sharply focused as needed, at the organization, department, location or individual employee level. CIRMA's sophisticated analytical systems provide real-time tracking, analysis, and reporting capabilities for our members, enabling them to monitor and measure their risk management action plan.
In addition to on-site consulting services, CIRMA risk management consultants provide members specialized services, such as:
Workplace Training Programs
CIRMA has created a nationally recognized education and training program, delivered by our risk consultants and professional associates, to provide safety and risk management training to our members and their employees. CIRMA provides classroom training at regional workshops, which are open to all members. A listing of regional workshops is found on our training page, Workshop & Learning Events. CIRMA also provides onsite, "Town-Only" training programs, which can be used to train an entire department or selected staff at one time on a specific topic. Please contact your risk management consultant to arrange a program.
CIRMA's regional and member-only training programs are complemented by the videos, DVDs, and Best Practices Guides, available for order online at the Learning Media Library. These resources are free to CIRMA Members.
Tail Gate Topics
Download CIRMA's Tail Gate Topics, our booklet of 80-plus safety and risk management training topics that are written specifically for municipal operations. Each of the topics will take about ten minutes to cover in a group discussion. Some stress basic awareness, common sense, and professionalism. Others are a review of important safety practices and guidelines. We recommend that supervisors and managers use the topics proactively in weekly "Tail Gate" Safety discussions, as refressher training when issues arrise, or when new responsibilities are assigned.
