OWATONNA, MINN. — Federated Insurance proudly announced its sixth annual Safety First! Contractor of the Year Award on October 5, during the closing reception and officer installation at the Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors – National Association’s national convention, CONNECT 2012, held in Philadelphia. This year’s recipient was Chambliss Plumbing, a family-owned business serving the San Antonio, Texas area, for 20 years.
The Safety First! award was created to recognize a PHCC contractor who takes advantage of Federated’s risk management assistance to effectively implement sound risk management practices. With hundreds of clients eligible each year to receive this prestigious honor, it was Chambliss Plumbing’s vigilant approach to loss control that distinguished them amongst their peers.
Owners Kevin and Kathy Chambliss and their employees embrace safety as an important part of their daily operations. The business frequently uses Federated’s risk management materials and training to set up and implement their own best practices. From pre-employment screening to monthly safety meetings, Chambliss is serious about safety — theirs and their customers’. To emphasize that commitment, Kevin stated, “We treat our customers the way we would want to be treated, so we make sure all our plumbers are licensed, insured, and professional.”
