BioRAFT Achieves Loss Control Certification

As a Certified Loss Control recognized by leading insurance carriers nationwide, BioRAFT will protect your people and revenue by:

  • Reducing costly safety incidents & workers comp claims
  • Decreasing lost days of work for research, maintenance, and facilities employees
  • Expose critical deficiencies that can lead to costly audit findings & reporting errors


How does BioRAFT serve as a loss control?

BioRAFT mitigates risk and protects revenue. Our system automates safety processes, simplifies regulatory reporting, and uses hazard-based profiles to shine the light on key areas of risk that are hard to see.

The BioRAFT platform reduces dependence on fragmented systems and cumbersome manual methods, greatly improving the efficiency and accuracy of scientists, safety teams, and complex reports.

Our system is utilized by leading life sciences organizations, U.S. government facilities, and over 100 academic institutions, including 37 R1 institutions (and counting) to manage risk and safety compliance. 

What is a loss control?

At a high level, a loss control is a risk management solution designed to reduce the frequency and severity of an event that causes a loss.

In the context of the Research Enterprise, loss control measures focus on mitigating large sources of facility and laboratory risk, to the lasting benefit of both the organization and its insurer.
