GPS – Gear, People, and Statute: A Guide to County Fleet Risk Management
Speaker: Isaac Garcia, TAC Senior Risk Control Consultant

Maintaining a vehicle fleet can be one of the riskiest endeavors a county takes on. Yet, this is a risk that counties face every day. To address this risk intelligently, we must avoid the potholes and focus on an efficient route that helps us reduce losses and keeps people safe. This session will map out three areas where counties can begin to mitigate fleet risks: Vehicles, Drivers, and Regulations. Along the way we will discuss new technological "detours" a fleet manager should consider.

An Introduction to Vehicle Collision Investigations
Speakers: Larry Boccaccio, TAC Risk Control Consultant

Vehicle Collision Investigations serve multiple purposes and are a vital part of any county's loss control program. The primary reason to investigate is to determine the cause(s) of the collision and implement corrective actions or preventive measures that may reduce or prevent recurrence. In this session, we will introduce collision investigation techniques, policies, and procedures, tools necessary to complete an investigation, and more.

In this session, you will learn insider secrets about how an auto loss is adjusted, things to consider when selecting a collision repair facility, building relationships with local shops, using replacement parts to repair damage, and more. This session will help you reduce your overall repair costs and get your vehicle back on the road as soon as possible.

In this session, we will discuss how a single collision can impact other lines of coverage such as Workers' Compensation.
