Risk Management

Risk Management Services

The City's Risk Management staff manages claims arising from City activities, and reviews insurance contracts with consultants and outside contractors to confirm insurance requirements and indemnification language is appropriate.  We also ensure that those doing business with the City provide the required proof of insurance documentation, and manage the City's safety programs.

The City purchases its insurance policies as part of a pool with other cities through a joint powers agency known as CIPA (California Insurance Pool Authority).

Our staff also investigates liability Property and Auto damage claims.  The City contracts with a Third Party Administrator, George Hills, to manage these property and general liability claims against the City.  The City's claims adjuster from George Hills can be reached at (951) 226-8853.

Claim forms are available at the City Clerk's office - 8200 Westminster Blvd., Westminster, CA  92683 - for filing a formal written claim against the City.  Click here to access the City's claim form.

The City provides a self-insured Workers’ Compensation program.  The City contracts with a Third Party Administrator, AdminSure, to manage employee injury claims. The City's claims adjuster from AdminSure can be reached at (909) 978-1133.

Preventing losses related to employee injury, injury to the public, or the loss of property and equipment is an important part of what we do in Risk Management.  Our safety programs are an integral part of our City's workforce plan that include health monitoring, employee safety training, hazard identification, safety inspections, driver safety, ergonomics, and compliance with safety and health rules.
