Counties exist to provide services for their communities. As service providers, public entities are exposed to potential losses from various sources. If these risks are not properly managed, the entity may lose its ability to effectively meet its service obligations.
Because Utah Counties Indemnity Pool is owned and governed by counties, we are not in it to make a profit, and as such we work hard to keep fees minimal by helping to lower risk and prevent claims against counties. To do that, we provide on-going training and alerts about all kinds of potential risks and problems that can occur when county buildings, vehicles, and other assets are in use.
We believe strongly in the old adage that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. So at the Pool we invest in quality outside educators and systems to teach member employees and stewards of county assets best and latest practices of safety and security.
UCIP members have access to a wide variety of risk management resources, each focusing on the education and training needs of county employees and elected officials. We hold training workshops throughout the year to ensure our members are informed on Legislative updates, safety concerns and best practices among counties. In addition, UCIP partners with affiliate groups to give members additional online and live training opportunities.
In an effort to meet the individual training needs of our members, we provide customized, onsite training to county employees and officials. UCIP also makes available, on demand training courses designed specifically to address issues facing county government and assist them in managing future loss and providing safer work environments.
