Risk Management

For organizations, risk management is not about being ‘risk averse’. Risk management majorly is not aimed at avoiding risks. Risk management focuses on identifying, evaluating, controlling and “mastering” risks. Risk management can also mean taking advantage of opportunities and taking risks based on an informed decision and analysis of the outcomes. Business Training in Kenya has more information.

Risk management can be defined as the identification, measurement, analysis and control of those risks that can cause losses to an enterprise. In the ideal situation, risk management involves a prioritization process whereby risks are handled in a descending order, beginning with those risks which could cause the biggest loss and has the highest chance of occurrence being handled first, and those with least loss and the lowest chance of occurrence handled last.

The purpose of risk management is to eliminate or reduce as much as possible, the losses resulting from a particular risk. The strategies used includes transferring the risk to another party, avoiding the risk, reducing the negative effect of the risk, and accepting some or all of the consequences of a particular risk.

Risk management is broader than insurance in that it deals with both insurable and uninsurable risks as well as other appropriate non- insurance techniques of dealing with both types of risk. Risk management therefore also involves techniques other than insurance.

The Principle of Contribution

The Principle of Contribution was developed under common law to deal with the sharing of the cost of liability where two or more persons are jointly liable to another for the same loss.

In the context of insurance practice, contribution can be defined as the right of an insurer to call upon others who are similarly but not necessarily equally liable to the same insured for his loss to share the cost of indemnity. Business Training in Kenya has more information.

Rules Governing The Principle of Contribution in Insurance

There must exist two or more policies of indemnity. This means that the insurances covering the property or the subject matter must be contracts of indemnity. Contribution does not apply to contracts of life assurance and permanent health assurance which are clearly not contracts of indemnity.

Each of the policies must be insuring the same subject matter of insurance which was lost or damaged. The property which has been affected by the loss must be common to all policies. The extent of amount of property need not necessarily be the same, for instance it may be only one item which is lost which is covered by both policies which also cover other property. One policy could be covering buildings and stock while the other is more specific to stock only. Any loss on stock would be addressed by both policies for purposes of contribution.

Each policy must insure the peril that has operated to cause the loss. Again the range of perils covered by each policy needs not to be the same. One policy could be insuring several perils whilst the other covers only one which however common to both policies and which causes the loss.
