Our risk engineers focus on what can be done to prevent a claim. One measure we take is to conduct a thorough loss analysis. This involves reviewing your company’s history of previous losses and accident investigation records to try to identify key loss sources. Once we identify the loss trends, we can assist in developing effective loss-reduction goals and practices.
Depending on your company’s needs, we can choose to focus on severity, frequency, location, tasks, departments and more. Loss analysis is a valuable discovery tool that will strengthen your risk control efforts by pinpointing high-risk areas and recurring trends. The more we understand your business’s loss exposures, the more we can help prevent those losses from happening.

Proper handling of impairments is an essential part of a sound risk management program. An impairment occurs when a fire protection equipment device (automatic sprinkler system, fixed extinguishing system, automatic fire alarm system, fire pump, etc.) is partially or completely taken out of service. When that happens, your property may not be adequately protected. During this period, there is an increased potential for a large property loss if a fire occurs. Most failures of fire protection systems are a result of an impairment. The most common type of impairment is a closed sprinkler valve.
When your facility has a fire protection system impairment, MSIG can help you stay compliant and properly manage the impairment. In the event of an impairment:
- Download and complete the Impairment Notification Form. Once you complete the form, email it to ReportanImpairment@msigusa.com & save a copy for the restoration update.
- Once the impairment has been restored, update the Impairment Notification Form with restoral date/time and email it to ReportanImpairment@msigusa.com.
Additional impairment resources are available that may be obtained through email@example.com and include:
- Complete Impairment Kit (available in digital and printed format)
- Notification Procedures (available in digital and printed format)
- Impairment Tags & Stickers (available in digital and printed format)
Working with ignition sources near combustible/flammable materials is referred to as “hot work.” Welding, soldering and cutting are all examples of hot work.
Fires are often the result of the “quick five-minute job” in areas not intended for welding or cutting. Obtaining a hot work permit before performing hot work is just one of the steps involved in a hot work management program that helps to reduce the risk of fire. The hot work permit establishes guidelines for areas designated as hot work areas where there are flammable or combustible materials.
Hot work management programs are put in place to control or eliminate hot work hazards and risks. The program involves developing policies and procedures, as well as assigning responsibilities and accountabilities for all aspects of hot work. The goal of the program is to determine where and when hot work is permitted, who authorizes the work to be performed, and how the hot work activities are monitored.
Our hot work permit provides you with the tools needed to properly assess the area where hot work is conducted. Obtaining the permit will confirm that all precautions have been taken to prevent a potential fire in accordance with National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards. Additional policies, procedures, training and communication are advised.

The purpose of BCP is to develop a practical plan for how your operation can prepare for, and continue to operate during and following an incident or crisis. Whether you schedule a business interruption, or one occurs due to an unplanned event (such as a fire, power failure, equipment breakdown, etc.), it is best to have a plan to resume operation.
A BCP will help you to identify and prevent risks where possible, prepare for risks that you cannot control, respond and recover if an incident or crisis occurs, and recover relatively quickly. Periodically, the plan should be tested and updated, as changes occur in your operation, your industry, or the location you operate in.
National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 1600, Standard on Disaster/Emergency Management and Business Continuity Programs, has resources and sample programs to assist you in creating your own management system of prevention and recovery to address potential risks in your company’s ability to conduct business. The NFPA 1600 may be obtained through: https://www.nfpa.org/assets/files/AboutTheCodes/1600/1600-13-PDF.pdf
