Loss Control Training Programs Abound for LGIT Members

The Local Government Insurance Trust offers a number of training programs to members so counties can minimize potential loss and focus on good governance.

As a member-owned organization, the Local Government Insurance Trust (LGIT) helps governments operating in counties, cities, and towns, to get the coverage they need to provide vital services for residents.  This joint self-insurance program helps local government avoid paying premiums to buy insurance from an insurance company, and, instead, contribute those premiums into a jointly owned fund. The money in that fund is used to pay for the members’ claims, losses and expenses.

Outside of peace of mind, LGIT offers a robust catalogue of training sessions to members to help employees prepare for potential challenges and unanticipated exposures. With sessions offered both online and in-person, employees can receive instruction on everything from defensive driving for individuals operating government vehicles to enhancing communication skills in courses like Civility in the Workplace and Supervising with Confidence.

For more information, interested participants can browse the full range of topics. An additional link offers options that are specifically taught in-person. Applying strategies that minimize loss can help entire governmental divisions function with confidence and assurance that the team is prepared to expect the unexpected.
