NEW YORK, Aug. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- National Underwriter Property & Casualty has revealed the three winners in the sixth annual "NU Award For Excellence in Workers' Comp Risk Management" program, sponsored by National Council on Compensation Insurance(NCCI).
- Grand Champion: Limbach Facility Services, Safety Zealot
- Winner: Kelly Services, Absolute Zero Is the Ultimate Goal
- Winner: Vestas-American Wind Technology, Safety Focus Yields a Windfall in Workers' Comp Savings
"All three winners are role models for their peers," said Bryant Rousseau, group editorial director for National Underwriter Property & Casualty. "We had a record number of total entries - and a record number from Fortune 500 companies. But ultimately, our winners stood out for their tremendous savings and unique approaches to Workers' Comp. The senior executives are greatly committed to safety at their organizations as well."
The three winners received their awards from Mr. Rousseau and an NCCI official during a special ceremony at the Workers' Compensation Educational Conference in Orlando today, where National Underwriter Property & Casualty puts together a National Trends program.
The trio of winning organizations will share more of the secrets of their success during a panel discussion led by Mr. Rousseau, as well as Jeff Eddinger of NCCI on Aug. 21. Highlights of that roundtable on loss control, safety and risk management will appear in the Oct. 15 edition of National Underwriter Property & Casualty and online at PropertyCasualty360.com.
