An El Dorado company was the recipient of Federated Insurance's 16th annual Safety First! Plumbing-Heating-Cooling-Contractors Contractor of the Year Award during the annual business meeting of the PHCC association's national convention, CONNECT 2021, in Kansas City, on Oct. 23.

Brent and Ruby McDiarmid are the owners of Glenn Mechanical Inc., a family owned third-generation business serving the El Dorado area since 1956, a news release said.

The Safety First! award recognizes a PHCC contractor who takes advantage of Federated's risk management assistance to effectively implement sound risk management practices. "Each year, hundreds of clients are eligible to receive this prestigious honor, but it was Glenn Mechanical Inc.'s dedicated approach to loss control that distinguished them amongst their peers," the release said.

"Owner Brent McDiarmid and his 65 employees embrace a culture of safety as the most important part of their daily operations. The business frequently uses Federated's risk management resources and training to implement their own best practices, such as monthly safety meetings and daily toolbox talks. He continues to make safer driving a priority by creating a company driving policy that each driver acknowledges by reading and signing. Additionally, the company has GPS tracking on all vehicles, which provides driving alerts," it said.

"Glenn Mechanical's positive safety culture is a direct result of our partnership with Federated. We communicate our safe practices on a regular basis and Federated provides the tools and support needed for our business to maintain a positive safety culture," Brent McDiarmid said in the release.

"Congratulations to Glenn Mechanical Inc. for earning Federated's Contractor of the Year award through their diligent attention to Safety First," the release said.
