Coleman Worldwide Moving Director of Safety, Kathy Grigsby, was recently appointed to the Board of Directors for the Alabama Self-Insurers Association. ASIA is a “statewide, non-profit membership organization that represents the interests of employers in Alabama who self-insure workers' compensation coverage on their employees.” Many of ASIA’s members work within the automotive or transportation industry along with broader industries such as food, power, health, and retail.
Coleman manages six locations throughout the state of Alabama along with over 50 locations throughout the U.S., thus making Kathy’s expertise in dealing with different Safety and Self-Insurance regulations valuable to ASIA. “During her time with Coleman, Kathy has been crucial in making sure our organization adapts to regulatory changes within our industry and really spearheaded our transition from paper to electronic logging for our drivers,” stated John Coleman, Executive Vice President for Coleman. “She has garnered great respect among her peers within the industry and is often looked upon for advice among many members of the American Moving and Storage Association (AMSA). She is a valuable asset for our organization and is very deserving of this appointment.”
Kathy has also seen her profile within the industry grow in 2016. In February, she presented during a breakout session at the 2016 American Moving and Storage Association Convention about current safety guidelines. In October, she contributed to an article for AMSA’s Direction magazine where she advocated and encouraged all movers to implement electronic devices within their vehicles in order to ensure better logging throughout the transportation industry.
