Accident Fund Insurance Company of America presented a 2018 WorkSafe Award to the management and employees of Midwest Landscapes of Otsego, Minn.  Accident Fund presents the award throughout the U.S. to companies who demonstrate a commitment to workplace safety excellence.  Midwest Landscapes provides commercial and residential landscaping and snow removal services in the Minneapolis/St. Paul Metro area.

Accident Fund has provided workers’ compensation insurance to Midwest Landscapes since 2015 through USI Insurance Services National Inc. of Minneapolis.

“Midwest Landscapes has placed safety as a top priority,” said Tara Bursey, senior loss control consultant at Accident Fund.  “They have gone more than three years without a lost time injury, which is quite an achievement in the landscape industry.  The credit goes to their management and committed employees, who take safety seriously and are always open to suggestions for improvement.  They complete daily toolbox talks and never miss an opportunity to emphasize the importance of a safe work environment.  The collaboration between Midwest Landscapes management and employees, USI Insurance Services and our team of experts at Accident Fund helped make this possible.”

“The safety record of Midwest Landscapes employees shows their dedication not only to creating a culture of excellence and their workmanship, but also in the safety for themselves and those around them,” said Matt Prasky, vice president of Midwest Landscapes.  “We are extremely proud of our hard-working team for the principles of safety that they are adhering to.”
