The first-ever award was presented during the IE3 Show March 20 through 22 at the Gaylord Opryland in Nashville, Tenn.

ACCA, the Indoor Environment & Energy Efficiency Association, and Federated Insurance announced Federated's ACCA Super STAR awarded to Bruce Beckwith of Beckwith Heating & Cooling.

Federated's ACCA Super STAR Award recognizes an ACCA contractor member and Federated Insurance client who make managing their employee and customer risks a top priority in their company's success.

The candidate has both leading programs and practices in place that focus on the four components that make up the STAR acronym: Safety, Teamwork, Action and Responsibility.

"This award is about more than holding a safety toolbox talk meeting with employees every month," said Nate Oland, special projects manager-marketing, Federated Insurance. "Pro-active risk management must be a part of a company's everyday processes. That's how it becomes engrained in their culture.We are excited to be partnering with ACCA on this new award by recognizing outstanding contracting companies who make a true commitment to providing a safe working environment for both their team members and customers."
