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 proud to honor these twenty organizations and highlight their commitment to workplace safety,” said Jon Stewart, President & CEO of KEMI. “Earning the KEMI Destiny Award requires a clear focus, teamwork, and a management philosophy that truly values the wellbeing of employees.”
This is the second consecutive year Brighton Center has received this honor.
“Brighton Center’s culture is surrounded by safety,” said June Miller, Chief Financial Officer for Brighton Center. “We are committed to ensuring that our operations ensure the health and safety of our employees, visitors, and customers. We train our employees that it is everyone’s responsibility to maintain an environment that promotes health and safety and we’ve seen tremendous decreases in claim numbers in recent years because of our proactive efforts.”
