Loss-control activities

Actions that an insured person or company takes at the instigation of an insurance company in order to prevent accidents or losses.

Loss-Control Activities

In insurance, actions taken by a policyholder at the behest of the insurance company to ensure that reasonable steps are taken to avoid a situation on which a claim might be made. For example, if a loss-of-income insurance policy covers a situation in which an employee's long-term injury results in a loss of production, the insurance company may require the policyholder to put in place appropriate safety measures to minimize claims. One does not conduct loss-control activities for policies that cover loss of income due to acts of God, such as tornados or hurricanes, but rather for policies covering primarily or exclusively foreseeable incidents.
