  • Fatigue management systems — an audit of your fatigue management systems, accompanied by suggested improvement strategies.
  • Risk financing — to help ensure the optimal balance of risk retention and risk transfer, supported by industry-leading data and analytics and predictive modelling tools, which provide insights that help you understand your risk exposures and the approaches to manage them.
  • Employee risks — helping you achieve significant reductions in the direct and indirect costs of employee injuries, absenteeism and staff turnover.
  • Fleet management — including accident-management service, driver training and fleet risk control.
  • Claims services — a range of claims handling, advocacy and defensibility services to help you reduce costs and improve efficiency.
