Risk Management

Minimize Risks – Maximize Solutions

At Cragin & Pike, we strengthen the success of your company by helping you develop a culture of people and processes that intrinsically lower your risks. We know we can’t outrun every risk, but we can reduce the number of claims and help you prepare for what comes. We have your back.

Risk management, particularly loss control, begins at the top of any organization. Yes, it requires an investment but the costs of ignoring safety concerns and not having the right coverage can be far higher in the long run than any front-end savings.

Most small- to medium-sized businesses can’t hire full-time risk managers which is why at Cragin & Pike offers a specialized team of Risk Management Consultants who can evaluate your business and provide cost savings solutions.

It’s our job to pay attention to the details. Only then can we create effective loss control strategies that will result in fewer claims and often see your efforts rewarded with lower insurance premiums.

The actualized cost of a claim is typically 2.5 times what the claim value shows on paper.

If you’ve ever had to deal with OSHA, vandalism, equipment breakdowns, damage to your company reputation, or even a computer virus then you know the cost of a claim goes far beyond the initial damage. There are adverse economic effects that can occur after the claim including down time, damage control to the company image, and higher premiums.

Needless to say, it’s far more cost-effective to prevent claims from ever happening.

The Importance of Team Training and Assurex

We believe that the foundation for effective risk mitigation is education. Setting employees up for success should start on day one with proper safety training and access to resources that are relevant to your company.

As a thought leader in our industry, we are committed to continually educating ourselves so that we can better serve you. We have been designated as an Assurex® supported company which means we receive the latest updates on risk factors in a wide variety of industries. Our Risk Management Consultants then utilize this information to identify pitfalls and prevent accidents from happening.
