Designated Risk Manager Seminars

A key to cutting insurance costs is controlling losses

Federated’s Designated Risk Manager (DRM) Training Program is a unique opportunity to help your business initiate a designated risk manager—a key person with the authority to act on and the responsibility for all aspects of safety and government compliance.

Sessions target specific risk management concerns for selected industries because we’ve found that the companies that are the most successful at controlling losses have assigned a key person as their risk manager. Seminar topics include:

  • Business Succession Planning
  • Designating a Risk Manager
  • Distracted Driving
  • Emergency Preparedness
  • Federated's Shield Network
  • Hiring Practices: Drug- & Alcohol-Free Workplace, Background Checks, and Training
  • Industry Input Session
  • Industry Losses
  • Industry-Specific Claims Handling
  • Industry-Specific Risk Management Practices
  • Motor Vehicle Reports
  • Risk Managing Workers Compensation
  • Spending Risk Management Dollars Wisely
  • Underwriting Your Business
