ASSP’s Risk Management/Insurance Practice Specialty member community is the premier resource for ASSP members seeking technical knowledge and expertise regarding risk management and loss control. We cater to safety professionals employed by insurance carriers, insurance agencies and brokers that provide risk management and loss control services to their clients.

What We Do

For ASSP members within the Risk Management/Insurance Practice Specialty community, we provide the following:

  • Networking opportunities via social media groups, conference calls and in-person meetings like the annual Professional Development Conference so you can connect with top industry professionals
  • Professional development opportunities, including safety-focused risk management and insurance education that you can immediately put into practice, mentor relationships that facilitate sharing knowledge, and volunteer and leadership opportunities to build your skills and enhance your resume
  • Safety-related, risk management- and insurance-focused content that you can put into practice and share with employers and colleagues to to create safe, productive work environments

Why It Matters

By hiring risk managers and loss control professionals, insurance carriers, agencies and brokers aim to go beyond just servicing claims to actually help their clients proactively identify hazards, manage risk and prevent losses. These services are important to clients and, therefore, important to insurance industry institutions that want to attract and retain clients by adding value. This makes it especially important for you to have access to top industry professionals and technical content so you can stay ahead of the risk topics and create value for your employer and their clients.
