    5. Financial Risk Assessment Information

    6. Referrals to the Carrier
      Where referrals are required, provide documentation that the prospective client was referred to the appropriate carrier and confirm that carrier’s approval was obtained prior to contracting with the prospect.

    8. Notice to Carrier of Client Addition/Deletion

  2. Client Service Agreement
  3. Provide copy of current Service Agreement used with each of the sample clients.
  4. Loss Prevention “Needs Assessments” and Service Plans
    1. Provide documentation, regardless of format, describing determination of the client’s service needs and the planned services to address those needs. Service needs may be determined during the risk assessment phase or after the prospect has become a client. Note: this should include your company’s standard operating procedure for providing certain services, regardless of any specific needs having been identified.
    2. On small, low-hazard risks, plan may only require a one-time site visit. If no service required, there should be an explanatory note in file.
    3. On larger, more complex risks, it is expected that loss-prevention service will focus on the identified loss sources and on assisting the client with implementing required controls. Providing a customized Employee Safety and Health Plan (Safety Manual) would be one example of a service objective.

  5. Loss Prevention Service Documentation
    1. Provide internal memos or equivalent documentation in any format, that provides a record of what was accomplished during each service visit. Unplanned visits can be conducted for a number of reasons, such as conducting accident investigations or responding to special requests by the client for assistance. These visits should be documented in similar manner.
    2. Submit copies of documentation for the services provided for the past 12 months. (Note: if no service was planned and none delivered, it is understood there will be no service documentation.)

  6. Employee Handbook
  7. Provide a copy of the page or pages from the employee handbook, which includes the client’s name and your name, and explains the co-employment relationship. If you do not provide handbooks or otherwise cannot submit this information, please provide an explanation.
