HRL Compliance Solutions and Primary Care Partners in Grand Junction are among 29 Colorado employers receiving recognition for their efforts to ensure workplace safety.

“These Colorado employers have shown a commitment to workplace safety that permeates their culture,” said Krista O’Rourke, vice president of agency relations and safety services for Pinnacol Assurance.

Pinnacol Assurance presented 29 workers’ compensation insurance policyholders with its Circle of Safety Award for 2018.

To receive the Circle of Safety Award, Pinnacol policyholders must meet criteria related to their record of safety and claims costs and hold cost containment certification. “They have seen the direct benefits of a safer workplace on their workers’ compensation costs. But what’s potentially more valuable is the more secure, protective, loyal and engaged work force their investment in employment safety can foster,” O’Rourke said.

HRL Compliance Solutions provides a range of environmental consulting services, including those related to air emissions compliance, permitting, site assessments, remediation and waste management.

Primary Care Partners provides a range of health care services that include family and pediatric medicine as well as acupuncture, after-hours non-urgent care, laboratory testing and analysis, mammography, nutritional services and diabetic education, physical therapy, sports medicine and X-rays.

Pinnacol Assurance provides workers’ compensation insurance to 57,000 employers in Colorado. For more information, log on to
