The Hartford has unveiled, a Web site
custom-designed for risk managers at large organizations whose workforce exceeds 500 employees.

The site reportedly helps an organization evaluate its total cost of risk and provides easy access to information about guaranteed cost and loss sensitive property/casualty insurance programs. The large business Web site also offers a library of interactive tools and a detailed introduction to @venture, The Hartford’s risk management information system.

The Hartford’s new large business Web site completes a trilogy of online centers devoted to helping businesses of all sizes manage their risk. The large business Web site design builds on the design and navigation of The Hartford’s small and midsized business Web sites. The small business site — — helps entrepreneurs educate themselves about insurance before they buy. The Hartford’s midsize business Web site – — provides resources for business
insurance buyers at companies with 21-499 employees.

Hartford, allows risk managers to calculate an accident’s indirect costs which are sometimes estimated at four to seven times the direct
costs. The Losstimator gives risk managers the full picture of an accident and helps organizations better understand the value of preventing injuries.

accompanied by a maze of jargon and unfamiliar terms. This section
provides both the legal definition and the plain English translation for common and not-so-common insurance terms.

consider to balance risk retention and risk transfer.
