PHOENIX (April 11, 2016) – P.B. Bell, a leader in multi-family housing development, management and acquisitions, is being recognized for its commitment to safety. For the ninth consecutive year, P.B. Bell has been included on CopperPoint Mutual Insurance Company’s exclusive “Best of the Best” list for its efforts to keep employees safe and reduce potential workplace hazards.
The Phoenix-based CopperPoint Mutual Insurance Company, an advocate for workplace safety, recognizes businesses on its “Best of the Best” list annually. The recognition is awarded each year to fewer than 100 insured policyholders out of a pool of about 13,000.
“Workplace safety is among our highest priorities,” Julia Leonard, vice president, human resources for P.B. Bell, said. “Given that our offices are located within housing communities around the Valley, we have an even greater stake in workplace safety, as thousands of residents have access. Creating a safe workplace environment helps create safer communities, overall.”
CopperPoint recognized P.B. Bell, in part, because it demonstrated a loss ratio of 20 percent or less during the most recent policy period. In addition, P.B. Bell demonstrated a loss ratio of 30 percent or less during three consecutive policy periods.
To ensure a safe working environment, P.B. Bell performs safety audits on a routine basis, stresses the importance of safety with each new employee as part of onboarding and orientation, and holds regular, internal safety meetings.
