Kentucky Employers’ Mutual Insurance (KEMI) recently recognized Brandenburg Telephone Company and 30 other Kentucky organizations (out of over 20,000 policyholders) for their commitment to workplace safety by presenting each of them with the 2021 KEMI Destiny Award.
The Destiny Awards are presented annually by KEMI to policyholders that best exemplify KEMI’s motto, “Control your own destiny.” The awards symbolize what can be accomplished when organizations work together to improve workplace safety. Policyholders who earn the KEMI Destiny Award effectively demonstrate to KEMI their ability to manage a formal safety program, provide on-site training and regular safety meetings for employees, and display an ongoing commitment to safety from all levels throughout their organizations.
“We are honored to present the 2021 Destiny Award to these outstanding organizations,” said Jon Stewart, President & CEO of KEMI. “Earning the KEMI Destiny Award requires focus, teamwork, and a relentless pursuit of excellence in safety at all levels. These policyholders understand the importance of maintaining a close partnership with KEMI to control their workers’ compensation costs, but more importantly, they demonstrate a steadfast commitment to ensuring their employees make it home safely at the end of each workday.”
Brandenburg Telephone Company has been honored to receive the award in 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021.
