  • Develop and maintain centralized loss history information to identify and analyze risk (confidential and reported only to appropriate agencies)

  • Annually audit agencies loss control programs as appropriate to suggest improvements, and observe and recognize successful safety policies and procedures as well as compliance with NMAC 1.6.4, the Loss Prevention and Control Rule.
  • Provide agency loss control assistance as needed.
