Quality Risk Management Fieldbook


Create a Risk Management Culture in Your Organization

This practical and proactive approach lowers the costs of risk and protects an organization's assets.

The Quality Risk Management Fieldbook is ready for immediate use to help you easily make the shift from limited insurance management to total risk management. This step-by-step guide is not a textbook but is the perfect resource if you lead a small business, nonprofit, government entity, or political subdivision and do not have risk management expertise or staff. Everything is included to help you work alongside your insurance agent to protect and preserve your organization.
