G.A. Rich & Sons
G.A. Rich & Sons, based in Deer Creek, Illinois, is a commercial
plumbing company providing contract services across the state of
Illinois with their 80+ commercial plumbers.
G.A. Rich & Sons faced a rising experience mod and increasing workers’ compensation premiums. They needed to increase safety awareness in an effort to reduce their workers’ compensation costs.
Using the STEP5 Risk Management Process, Kuhl Insurance℠ met with owners and managers to educate leaders on how an experience modification rate impacts workers’ compensation premiums and ultimately – the bottom line. From there, the plan was to engage leaders and employees in safety awareness and safe work practices to reverse the trends.
Kuhl Insurance helped G.A. Rich & Sons facilitate supervisor training, implement weekly safety awareness meetings known as “tool talks,” and provided customized safety materials. G.A. Rich & Sons is now focused on managing costs through proactive safety practices.
G.A. Rich & Sons positively impacted their experience mod and achieved a corresponding reduction in insurance premiums.
“For the past several years, G.A. Rich & Sons has implemented Kuhl Insurance’s STEP5 Risk Management Process to increase safety awareness while simultaneously reducing our insurance costs. As a Safety Director, I know the STEP5 program helped us take safety to a new level!”
