Members of Master Builders of Iowa have a drive to continually improve. Chances are, you’re working at the top of your game today with a crystal-clear look at tomorrow that’s even better. And leading that vision is a demonstrated focus on jobsite safety.
Why not be rewarded for the hard work that goes into protecting employees on the job? Here are four reasons why a safe construction site may pay off by participating in the MBI and UFG Insurance program.
1. The opportunity to earn a safety group dividend.
As a contractor, the expertise you bring to your craft and your commitment to ensuring the safety of your operations deserve competitively priced, quality insurance and the chance to be rewarded for your dedication. MBI and UFG are proud to team together to offer an insurance coverage program that does just that. Members of the MBI and UFG program are eligible for the chance to earn a safety group dividend for property and casualty lines of insurance (excluding workers compensation). In fact, 2019 participants in this program earned a 3.5% policyholder dividend – a great reward for great work!
2. Professional services for professional contractors.
UFG’s local network of professionals can help MBI members at any step of the insurance process. Quality supports, like risk control and customer service, are never more than a call or click away.
3. Customized products and coverages.
Insurance products and coverages provided to MBI members through UFG have been designed for contractors, which includes customizable policies. UFG agents can walk you through all the options that best fit your unique company needs. Speaking of agents, congratulations to Frank King and Justin Jones of LMC Insurance of West Des Moines for showcasing their steadfast commitment to serving MBI members; they won the MBI/UFG Next Level Challenge thanks to their passion for covering the construction industry.
4. Focused-driver education.
Is this job on track? What’s the status of supply? Are my workers safe? Responsibilities abound and phones seem to buzz all the time. It’s easy to let pressing duties take attention off the task at hand, especially when driving. But when attention drifts from the road, vehicles drift too. Thanks to the MBI and UFG partnership, MBI members have free access to valuable educational materials through Worth It, a distracted driving prevention program courtesy of UFG designed to put an end to the bad driving habits that lead to preventable crashes. Because life is worth it, distracted driving is not.
