Indoor Growers and Garden Centres Risk Control Services
As part of the Indoor Growers and Garden Centres Program we offer our Risk Control services in the way of Loss Control Inspections. This value-added service is provided free for customers.
Every business is different with unique challenges and risks. We tailor our inspections to each individual business. Despite best efforts to mitigate risk, there are often things that go overlooked. However, our loss control inspectors are trained to identify these.
We work side by side with our customers to help find solutions to reduce exposure.
Western Financial Group Loss Control Inspections
Accompanied by the customer, our inspectors take notes and photographs of the exterior/interior construction details while touring the facility. Heating, plumbing, electrical and mechanical systems get a detailed examination in addition to any possible liability hazards.
Thermal imaging on electrical and mechanical systems is included in Western Financial Group’s inspections. Infrared thermography plays a crucial role in the inspection process as it allows us the ability to prevent future losses.
Once information has been gathered a detailed recommendation letter is constructed and discussed with the customer. This is to help customers be informed when developing their action plans.
Regardless of a greenhouse, nursery or garden centre, Western Financial Group’s Risk Control service is here for you.
As a result of COVID-19 our onsite inspections are currently limited.
