Federated Insurance Promotes Fire Prevention Week with Resources for Businesses

NATSO Chairman's Circle member Federated Insurance is providing NATSO members with several resources for Fire Prevention Week, running October 6–12, 2013.

Managing an exposure like fire is not a yearly, monthly, or even weekly activity—it is a daily activity.

Risk Management: NATSO Members are Talking. Are You Listening

When I meet with travel plaza owners to discuss the risk management culture at their businesses, I often notice a repeating pattern. They have good intentions of making employee and customer safety a priority, but their good intentions don’t always get acted upon. They cite sticking points such as: I’m too busy. I’m not sure how to do it. We don’t really have any problems. Although these reasons can indeed be legitimate, they are often excuses.
