OWATONNA, Minn. (Jan. 7, 2014) — Federated Mutual Insurance Co., the Tire Industry Association’s (TIA) endorsed liability insurance provider, will host a designated risk manager seminar April 28-30 for tire dealers at its Owatonna headquarters.
The seminar is designed for tire dealership owners and key employees who are responsible for implementing risk management strategies, and will focus on risk management concerns specific to tire dealers and auto service providers, TIA said.
Among the agenda items will be distracted driving; hiring, screening and retaining employees; claims handling; implementing and maintaining a drug- and alcohol-free workplace; and major loss areas in the tire industry.
The seminar is free to TIA members, but all attendees are responsible for travel, lodging and meal costs. Space is limited to 25 persons, TIA said.
Titan International and the United Steelworkers union have petitioned the U.S. International Trade Commission and U.S. Department of Commerce seeking relief from OTR tire imports from China, India and Sri Lanka. What’s your opinion?
|I wholeheartedly support their action – something needs to be done.||
|I think it’s a bad idea that could inevitably tie the hands of domestic tire makers.||
|I oppose any duties against tire importers—they only raise costs for distributors and make it harder to obtain inventory.||
|I’m kind of on the fence and not sure what’s right, but need more information before deciding.||
|I don’t really care whether or not relief is granted.||
