Loss Prevention


Because our world turns to the legal system more often than ever before to settle disputes we have created some helpful forms that can assist you in adopting loss prevention and control techniques.

Incorporating the use of such forms can enable you to produce consistent documentation that may help provide some defense from lawsuits brought against you such as a slip and fall claim.

Slip and Fall

Please ask your Insurance Broker for a supply of these Portage Mutual forms:

  • Incident Report Form
  • Workplace Inspection Checklist
  • Interior Inspection/Maintenance Log Form
  • Exterior Inspection/Maintenance Log Form

Consult your Professional Insurance Broker to explain the benefits of purchasing a Retailers Pro coverage package.


Coverages and limits are subject to change. This is a general description of coverages. Actual policy conditions govern. For a complete description of coverages please consult your Insurance Broker or the Retailers Pro Policy Booklet.
