Get to know an SFM loss prevention specialist: Jason Clausen
SFM Loss Prevention Specialist Jason Clausen hopes employers he works with will see him not as a safety inspector, but as a safety champion and business partner.
This means he often includes the bottom-line benefits of safety in conversations with employers.
“We talk a lot about your experience mod and how preventing injuries over the long haul means you’re going to pay less of a workers’ compensation premium,” Clausen said.
Clausen has been a safety professional with SFM since 2012, and he serves employers in Iowa. His days involve everything from providing consultation on a safety program to visiting a workplace after a bad claim to attending a safety committee meeting.
Over time, he hopes the employers he works with will grow to trust him enough to come to him when they need something.
“We pride ourselves on being very accessible and easy to get a hold of,” he said. “I want customers to know they can call us with a question and expect a timely response.”
Clausen is also proud to play a role in SFM’s team-based approach to account management, where safety professionals, claims representatives, attorneys, underwriters and medical professionals work together to provide holistic service and solutions for customers.
“At the end of the day, I find it pretty satisfying to know that I’ve done something to help an insured, and that’s a team effort,” Clausen said. “That’s the collaborative, non-siloed SFM way where you’re talking to a claims rep or you’re talking to counsel, and you’re giving rock solid, real-time advice.”
Clausen is based in Waukee, Iowa, where he lives with his wife, two children, and dog. A veteran of both the Navy and Iowa Army National Guard, he now serves as a Dallas County Reserve Deputy Sheriff. He enjoys hunting, fishing and scuba diving.
