Loss Control Field Inspector
Commercial Loss Control Consultant-Independent Contractor
We are looking for experienced Commercial Lines Loss Control Consultants to become approved vendors. As an approved vendor, you will be contracted to conduct insurance loss control inspections and consultative visits in your coverage area. Appointments are set at the mutual convenience of the inspector and property contact. Orders are sent and completed reports are returned through a cloud-based system. This is contract-based work that is paid per inspection for a fee set in advance. Vendors work independently and fees are paid weekly upon satisfactory order completion. Preferred Reports makes no guaranty of assignments or revenue. The vendor shall have their own equipment for use when conducting inspections (computer, digital camera, scanner, cell phone, etc.), reliable transportation, and be available for calls. During your visit you will conduct an interview, survey/inspect the premises, identify hazards/controls, take digital photographs, and make any necessary recommendations to improve risk. Most inspections will also call for buildings to be measured, square footage calculated, and diagrams produced. Following the site visit the vendor is expected to promptly produce a detailed and accurate report of the information obtained.
All vendors must provide a current resume and submit to a background check which includes a criminal records check and may include a drug screen. Bi-lingual is a plus.
