Municipality Risk Management Resources

Specializing in risk management solutions that improve employee safety

Key Risks Facing Municipalities and Local Governments

City managers and city councils need to be aware of the unique risks facing local governments. For instance, the health and safety of the community should always be top of mind, while financial sustainability and infrastructure should also be a priority. Promoting safety procedures and safe practices are key to managing risks for municipalities. Local governments should carefully consider any potential liability issues and ensure all employees have undergone proper safety training.
