Oswald staffs our Risk Control Department with experienced, industry trained professionals.

Our approach to the casualty side of Loss Control is to focus on the basics. We do this through strategies that are driven by information and delivered with forethought. Our
services are designed to identify internal best practices and promote solutions paralleling the goals and objectives of your organization.  We find that relationship between the science of engineering
and the art of managing behavior is symbiotic. The two must work together to reduce the frequency of loss.

Some of the services we provide include:

  • Auto/Fleet Safety
  • Ergonomics
  • General Liability Avoidance
  • Industrial Hygiene
  • OSHA compliance
  • Onsite assessment

We believe the key to managing costs is to employ a strong and directed claims management program. So often, an organization will cede their responsibility and duty to manage insurance claims off to an insurance carrier. Our philosophy is to take back control of your claims costs by working with your organization to create a customized internal process to efficiently process claims, and to improve your partnership with your TPA or carrier. We act as an extension of your risk management team.

Costs are controlled and exposures reduced by having a party representing your interest that acts separately from the constraints of the policy between Insured and Carrier. As your Claims Advocate, we provide technical expertise, management tools, administrator oversight, and coverage interpretation. Our programs are designed to interact with your management team and reflect the business objectives of your company.

  • Advocacy in Coverage Disputes
  • Business Interruption
  • Claim Administrator Oversight
  • Liaison with Insurance Carrier/TPA
  • Loss Reporting
