The NMSU Loss Prevention and Control Program is a comprehensive and systematic approach to the many facets of safety and environmental protection. Its purpose is to provide a safe and healthy environment for the University community and reduce the number, severity and potential costs of injuries, illnesses and harmful activities. Loss prevention generally includes proactive measures to prevent or abate potential risks. This may be in the form of improved safety and training programs; implementing new, less hazardous processes; programs/projects to reduce injuries and property loss; and/ or general safety enhancements. Loss control is the act of reducing severity by identifying the factors that aggravate or increase a loss and taking proactive measures to lessen the effects of those factors.
