Loss Control for Businesses


Safe workplaces have not always been a given. In Gilbert’s early days, businesses had a fatalistic view of work injuries, seeing them as an inevitable cost of business. Public opinion turned after large-scale catastrophes, such as the 1907 Darr Mines explosion in western Pennsylvania, which killed 239 miners, and the 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist Fire in a New York City garment factory, which killed 149 young girls and women.

Happily, we’ve seen things change greatly in our 160 years of insuring Pennsylvania businesses. Today, enlightened employers implement loss control programs, recognizing the potential to make not just a dramatic impact on financial losses, but also as a way to strengthen employee morale, trust, and commitment.


Gilbert’s Risk Solutions has been right at the forefront of this change. Today, we strive to become your trusted loss control partner, heightening your level of risk awareness and ensuring a strong top-to-bottom safety culture. We work directly with executive management to formalize and implement a proactive safety and loss prevention program focused on reducing claim frequency and severity. To yield maximum return on investment, we seek industry partners with 100% commitment to the safety process from executive management.


While we’re proud to call Pennsylvania our home, we’ve helped businesses all across the country manage their risk and we look forward to helping you, too – no matter where it is that you call home.
