Risk Management

Risk Management provides a system of risk and loss exposure identification and analysis designed to protect the City and County of Denver, its capital assets, property and employees by managing the city’s self-insurance and loss control programs and the purchase of insurance, by developing and implementing appropriate risk management policies and procedures, and by educating and training all city employees in workplace safety.

The Risk Management Office includes the following units:

  • Insurance and Risk Analysis
    Risk Management program development including placement and management of property and liability insurance policies, citywide risk assessments, insurance requirements for outside contractors providing services to the city.
  • Workplace Safety
    As authorized by Executive Order No. 65, Risk Management is responsible for establishing a city-wide Operational Safety and Health Management Program. Monitors and evaluates the safety activities of agencies/departments to ensure compliance with the City's Safety and Health Management System. Acts as consultant and advisor to agencies/departments in a variety of workplace safety areas.
  • Workers' Compensation
