We’ve simplified our Safety Award Program for 2015, but our mission remains the same: to improve safety awareness and implementation, reduce frequency and severity of accidents and give affiliates an opportunity to reduce their General Liability premiums. We believe our trimmed-down program requirements will give more affiliates the opportunity to participate.
