Newport Risk Management Responsibilities

The Risk Management Department works closely with the Newport Finance Department and the Administrative Services Department to minimize financial losses and other risks for the Newport government. The department purchases insurance for Newport agencies and sets insurance requirements for Newport contractors. Risk Management also oversees loss prevention and control programs, administers claims, and monitors litigation. As part of its responsibilities, the Risk Management Department creates annual reports and makes other records related to Risk Management available to the public.

Loss Prevention & Control

In Newport, the Risk Management Department oversees loss prevention and control programs, which attempt to reduce the likelihood that a loss will occur. Loss prevention programs include safety training and workshops for Newport government personnel to limit or prevent losses. The Risk Management Department also inspects Newport municipal buildings and physical assets to control losses, including placing fire extinguishers, sprinklers, and smoke detectors in public buildings.

Government Insurance Policies

The Risk Management Department oversees government insurance, including enforcing policies on risk insurance. These include various types of insurance policies, including property insurance, errors and omission insurance, liability insurance, and workers' compensation. Government insurance policies mitigate the effects of losses, so the Risk Management Department oversees standards on the minimum insurance requirements. In addition, the Newport government transfers risk by requiring contractors to carry insurance to protect against loss due to accidents or litigation.

Newport Risk Pools

In addition to mandating government insurance policies, the Risk Management Department creates intergovernmental insurance pools to manage the cost of insurance. These Newport risk pools let multiple government agencies make group purchases of insurance by allying with other Lincoln County and Oregon governments. Insurance pools can also offer risk assessments, safety training, and other services.
