Loss control is the proactive measures taken to prevent or reduce loss evolving from accident, injury, illness and property damage. The aim of the loss control is to reduce the frequency and severity of losses. It is directly related to human resource management, engineering and risk management practices.
Loss control involves identifying risks and is accompanied by voluntary or required actions a policyholder should undertake to reduce risk. Policyholders may benefit from loss control programs through reduced premiums, while insurers can cut down their costs in the form of claim payouts
Loss control in any organization is achieved through commitments of all personnel in the organization. It emphasizes safety procedures and practices, training and monitoring
