Accident Fund Helps Tractor Supplier to Achieve Greater Workplace Safety
When Heritage Tractor first met with Accident Fund Insurance Company of America, they were in need of some changes and eager to work with Accident Fund to implement increased workplace safety initiatives.
Founded in 1998, Heritage Tractor specializes in new and used tractors, utility vehicles, power equipment and parts at 10 locations throughout eastern Kansas and western Missouri. Their “open door” policy to Accident Fund’s safety services and tools has contributed to their improved results. Over the past few years, Heritage has implemented a formal return-to-work program, formed a monthly safety committee, performed monthly safety inspections and increased management accountability.
“Heritage Tractor has been extremely welcoming to our input and interactions,” said Accident Fund WorkSafe Consulting Services Manager Richard Garrett. “They promptly act upon suggestions for improvement and have implemented ‘top down’ safety and loss control measures at each of their locations.”
These safety and loss control measures have certainly paid off. Since 2010, Heritage Tractor has reduced their experience modification factor by 0.13. Their improvements have been so significant that in 2014, Accident Fund awarded Heritage Tractor with a safety award to recognize their impressive workplace safety achievements.
