KEMI Earns A.M. Best "Excellent" Rating for 2015
A.M. Best Company has affirmed the A- (Excellent) Financial Stability Rating for Kentucky Employers’ Mutual Insurance (KEMI). The announcement marks the fifteenth consecutive year KEMI has earned the “Excellent” rating from A.M. Best, the leading provider of financial ratings for the insurance industry worldwide.
The rating is based on a comprehensive quantitative and qualitative evaluation of KEMI’s balance sheet strength, operating performance, and business profile and is especially important in today's volatile workers' compensation insurance market.
“KEMI is delighted that A.M. Best affirmed our ‘Excellent’ rating,” says Jon Stewart, KEMI’s President and CEO. “As the leading provider of workers’ compensation insurance in Kentucky, this rating demonstrates KEMI’s commitment to deliver on our promises now and in the future.”
Stand-Down for Safety on May 4-15, 2015
KEMI is encouraging employers to participate in the OSHA National Safety Stand-Down, a voluntary event where employers will talk directly to employees about safety. Managers are encouraged to plan a stand-down that works best for their workplace anytime during May 4-15, 2015.
How does it work?
This year the focus of the Stand-Down is on "Fall Hazards" and reinforcing the importance of "Fall Prevention." Your organization may participate simply by taking a break to have a toolbox talk or another safety activity such as conducting safety equipment inspections, developing rescue plans, or discussing job specific hazards.
