Jan. 7, 2014—Federated Insurance announced on Monday that it will conduct a special “Designated Risk Manager Seminar” for tire dealers and auto service centers on April 28-30 in Owatonna, Minn.

"Tire dealers that are most successful at controlling losses have a designated key person as their risk manager,” said Tire Industry Association (TIA) executive vice president Roy Littlefield. “The challenge is that typically it is not a full-time position and the responsibility falls on someone who has other full-time duties to fulfill.”

The two-and-a-half day seminar is designed specifically for owners and key employees who are responsible for implementing risk management strategies. The seminar targets specific risk management concerns for the tire industry. Key agenda items will include:

  • Distracted driving.
  • Hiring, screening, and retaining employees.
  • Tire dealers/auto service center claims handling.
  • Implementing a drug and alcohol free workplace.
  • Major loss areas in the tire industry.

There is no charge for TIA members to attend the seminar. Attendees are responsible for the cost of travel, lodging (at a discounted rate), and meals. Space is limited to 25 people.
