On Tuesday, April 21st, Centennial Ag Supply Co. was awarded the "2014 Best Practice in Safety Award," sponsored by the BBB and presented by Pinnacol Assurance. Centennial Ag Supply Co. is a part of the Pinnacol Assurance safety group in Northern Colorado. We were selected for the award because our workman's comp loss rate or our experience modification rate (EMR) below .85, we are Cost Containment Certified by the State of Colorado and we had no loss time injuries for the period of June 1, 2013 through May 31, 2014. The experience modification rate has a strong impact upon a business. This is the number used by insurance companies to gauge both past cost of injuries and future chances of risk. The lower the rate of your business, the lower your worker compensation insurance premiums will be. A rate of 1.0 is considered the industry average, our rate is .65. Thank you to all of our employees for being careful and safe, and keep up the good work! Safety starts with you!
