State Farm Insurance has joined the board of directors of the Network of Employers for Traffic Safety (NETS) – an organization dedicated to advancing road safety for employees, their families, and their wider community.
NETS board chair and global director of health & safety technology solutions, Terry Thomas, welcomed State Farm representatives Scott Winn, small business insurance loss control administrator, and Liz Pulver, transformation safety research senior program manager, to the board.
“State Farm is a well-recognized brand that has a long history as a safety pioneer since being founded in 1922 through their efforts to protect customers and communities from the risks of everyday life at home and on the road,” said Thomas. “Collectively, the NETS Board of Directors could not be more pleased, and we look forward to collaborating with Scott and Liz as we work to reduce risk and save lives.”
“State Farm is excited to join NETS’ Board of Directors and looks forward to partnering with other respected companies to improve road safety for employees and motorists,” commented Winn, discussing his selection to the board.
“Our commitment to the safety of all road users drives State Farm leadership participation in organizations like NETS,” added Pulver.
State Farm joins other notable NETS board members, which include Acertus, Chubb, Consolidated Edison, Hess Corporation, Johnson & Johnson, Liberty Mutual Insurance Group, Toyota North America, and UPS.
A company release from NETS explained that its board of directors is composed of both public and private sector leaders who are committed to road safety; the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) serve as federal liaisons to the board. Established in 1989, NETS’ board of director companies are recognized in the US and the rest of the world for advancing road safety.
