Stater Bros. has been named a recipient of the 2015 Theodore Roosevelt Workers’ Compensation and Disability Management Award.
The awards, which are given out by Risk & Insurance magazine, recognizes excellence in workers’ compensation risk management in the for-profit and non-profit business sectors, according to a statement released Thursday by Stater Bros.
San Bernardino-based Stater Bros. was the only grocery store chain to receive the award this year.
The “Teddy Award” is named for the president who, in 1908, introduced the country’s first significant workers compensation legislation. It honors companies that reduce the number and cost of injuries to their workers.
State Bros. offers incentives to its workers, including company gift cards and in-store drawings, to prevent work-related accidents. So far this year, 25 Stater Bros. stores have gone more than two years without an injury requiring a workers’ compensation claim and 53 stores have passed the one-year mark.
Pennsylvania-based Risk & Insurance magazine publishes 12 times a year, both in print and online. The publication’s Stater Bros. profile appears in its November edition and can be found at riskandinsurance.com.
