WELCOME TO RHA'S PROPERTY PROGRAM  
LAKE LAWN RESORT

Lake Lawn Resort in Delavan, Wisconsin joined RHA's Casualty Program in 2017. Once they were part of RHA's membership and learned more about RHA's excellent coverages and group program benefits they quickly wanted to join our Property Program too! We were delighted to work with their insurance team to make that happen, and they joined our Property Program in September.

LOSS CONTROL TOPIC OF THE MONTH
WINTER SAFETY  
 
Over the past 10 years, slip/fall claims involving snow and/or ice have cost members, and our insurers, $1.6 million. The mean value of these claims is approximately $18,000. Members also experience property damage claims related to winter weather, such as water damage from sprinkler systems that have frozen and burst, or damage from winter storms. Each of these property damage claims cost, on average, $100,000.  

Does your location experience winter weather? If so, you need a plan!

RHA recommends that each member have a documented plan to prepare for and manage winter weather, including supplies, staffing, and prioritizing snow/ice removal.  Click here for a sample Winter Weather Management Plan.

Do you use a third party for snow/ice removal? If so, do you have appropriate contract language in place to protect you from the vendor's negligence? If not, RHA can provide one for you. To request a contract, send an email to Lori Wood.
