Risk management practice designed to control losses by physically separating assets or operations (on separating a single exposure unit into various parts) to reduce maximum potential loss. The objective of such a separation is to reduce the risk of loss to the whole exposure unit through dispersion. For example, two related chemical processing operations, both subject to loss from explosion or fire, would be built a sufficient distance apart-perhaps even on separate premises-so that the explosion of one would not damage the other.
