Russell Co. Hospital receives award for workplace safety

Kentucky Employers’ Mutual Insurance (KEMI) recognized 28 Kentucky organizations for their commitment to workplace safety by presenting each of them with the 2020 KEMI Destiny Award.

One of those recipients was Russell County Hospital.

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 extremely proud to recognize these twenty-eight organizations for their commitment to workplace safety,” said Jon Stewart, President & CEO of KEMI. “These policyholders have exemplified their commitment to safety by partnering with KEMI to control their workers’ compensation cost, and most importantly working to ensure the safety and well-being of every one of their employees.”
