Check out the risk mitigation services we offer, and then get in touch. Highlights of our risk management services for those in the fire life safety industry include:
Contract Review & Consulting
These services help identify loopholes in fire life safety contractor service contracts that can lead to unforeseen liability.
Our insurance claim review services involve reviewing claims related to fires and life safety systems, and helping to determine if the claim is valid, or if there are contractual stipulations that negate the claim.
Hazard Assessment for General Liability & Commercial Property
Assessing the hazards and extent of controls within your operation is an important baseline for setting risk management priorities. We will offer various alternatives to eliminate, minimize, or control these hazards. Myers Risk Services will work with you to determine the impact on your business and cost benefit of implementing changes.
Legal teams know the law but not necessarily how it applies to fire life safety issues or fire life safety technologies. At Myers Risk Services, we work tirelessly to separate fact from fiction, and offer litigation support based on solid scientific and engineering principles. In the event of a legal dispute, we can provide consulting services to advise legal teams on how to correctly position the case – be it a defensive, or prosecutorial position.
Recommendation Resolution & Alternative Resolution Strategies
Insurance companies provide loss control services that evaluate the risk level of a company or facility, and offer recommendations aimed at reducing that risk. Often, these recommendations are standardized (“canned,”) or follow the rigid internal guidelines of the insurance company. Too many times, these recommendations are either too rigid, lack the detail to be complete, or are not cost effective. Myers Risk Services will work as your advocate to not only satisfy the insurance underwriter’s objective but also optimize the benefit for your company.
- Myers Risk Services’ Success Story: Recently a national insurance carrier made a loss control recommendation to upgrade the fire protection system at a Florida facility because it was not adequate for the storage area. However, that recommendation did not clearly explain how the loss control rep came to the decision to upgrade the sprinklers or any alternative solutions. An assessment indicated that it was going to cost $125,000 to upgrade the facility’s fire sprinkler system. Myers Risk Services reviewed situation and offered a solution that involved no capital expense. By rearranging the stock and heights to which it was stored, the sprinkler system was deemed adequate without any changes. In other situations, adding or modifying and existing fire sprinkler system can show a large ROI.
Risk Mitigation Training Classes
Myers Risk Services offers courses ranging from one-hour, topic-specific educational sessions to full-day classes. We design program content to meet specific client needs. Past seminars have included topics such as Fire Prevention vs. Fire Protection (human element programs), Inspection, Testing, and Maintenance of Fire Protection Systems, and Risk Avoidance for Contractors Doing Inspection & Service Work.
Root Cause Analysis
Fire protection systems are complex, and there are many reasons why they fail. Before responsible parties can be determined, the root cause of the failure must be identified. Myers Risk Services has the expertise to help determine why a fire protection system failed, assign responsibility, and provide support during litigation.
Loss investigations are focused on providing clients with the facts pertaining to a specific loss. Myers Risk Services provides consulting to both identify and determine the parties responsible for the loss.
Myers Risk Services can provide underwriting reports that help justify underwriter decisions.
