Federated Insurance presented its third annual “Safety First!” Contractor of the Year Award to Dan Foley of Lorton, Va.
Foley accepted the award on behalf of Foley Mechanical Inc., the 18-employee company he founded in 2002. It was presented during the closing reception and officer installation of the Plumbing-Heating-Cooling-Contractors-National Association’s convention, CONNECT 2009, held in New Orleans Oct. 23.
The “Safety First!” award was created to recognize a PHCC contractor who takes advantage of Federated’s risk management assistance to effectively implement sound risk management practices. With hundreds of clients eligible each year to receive this honor, it was Foley’s proactive loss control methods of effective hiring practices, motor vehicle record (MVR) checks, drug testing and safety meetings that elevated him among his peers.
