The following policyholders were selected after meeting a stringent set of criteria set forth by KEMI:

  • Ale 8 One Bottling Company*

“KEMI is honored to present the 2016 Destiny Award to the management and employees of these organizations,” said Jon Stewart, President & CEO of KEMI. “Safer workplaces not only lead to lower workers’ compensation costs, but more importantly it means that employees are going home to their loved ones safely at the end of each shift.”Measures which have helped reduce workers’ compensation costs for this elite group of policyholders include the implementation of formal safety programs, the completion of on-site training and regular safety meetings, and an ongoing commitment to safety from all levels throughout their organizations.
