The KEMI Destiny Award is presented annually to policyholders that best exemplify KEMI’s motto, “Control your own destiny.” It symbolizes what can be accomplished when organizations work together to improve workplace safety.

Western Kentucky Minerals Safety measures which have helped reduce workers’ compensation costs for this elite group of policyholders include the establishment of interactive relationships with KEMI’s Loss Education Department, the implementation of formal safety programs, onsite training and regular safety meetings, and an ongoing commitment to safety from all levels throughout their organizations. “Workplace safety is both a core value and a top priority at every level for recipients of the KEMI Destiny Award,” said Roger Fries, KEMI President & CEO. “Policyholders who are successful at minimizing workplace risks not only benefit from lower workers’ compensation insurance premiums, but more importantly their employees go home safely to their loved ones each day.”
