The name not only incorporates their company acronym “CAL”, but it accurately defines the quality services they provide their clients. They’ve coined the phrase, “CALIBRATE: The Measure Of Successful Risk Management” to show one more way they are raising the expectations of the construction industry when it comes to insurance risk management.

Each letter in the word CALIBRATE highlights an integral part of CAL’s risk management solution:

C: Contractual Compliance
A: Assessment of Safety Culture
L: Lateral Referral to Attorneys, CPA’s, Loss Control Consultants and Others
I: Improved Hiring Practices
B: Best Practices Assessment
R: Routine Review of Claims and Exposure Basis
A: Alternative Risk Considerations
T: Transfer of Risk
E: Experienced Modification Management

“We’re always looking for innovative ways to provide our clients with the highest level of quality service and the best value,” said Don Lambert, Jr., President of Collinsworth, Alter, Lambert. “With CALIBRATE, we’ve taken our extensive experience in the risk management field and created a methodology that delivers superior results to our clients, year after year,” he continued.

CAL knows that by helping companies mitigate risk every step of the way, they can provide better coverage options and lower the cost of risk management over the long-term. They understand that there’s no true short-term solution for your long-term risk management needs. Risk management is not just the delivery of an insurance quote. It’s much more than a coverage versus current cost proposition. A real risk management solution is one that over time, takes into account a company’s continually changing and growing operations, hiring practices, safety culture, risk transfer mechanisms, and any other business practices that contribute to risk. “The real key is for contractors to take control of their long-term cost of risk,” Lambert said. “It’s time they stop basing their risk management policy to the annual low bid from that lucky agent that somehow managed to get through the gatekeeper.”

They believe that providing effective risk management is an ongoing process and that delivering it means becoming your long-term risk management partner. CALIBRATE serves as Collinsworth, Alter, Lambert’s comprehensive guide for doing so. It’s how they assess a company’s situation, determine their needs, identify problem areas, and begin a process that will lead clients to an appropriate cost of risk today and over the long-term. No other agency or broker offers the construction industry this kind of engaged and structured approach to risk management.
