“Well done! Your book Safety and Workers’ Compensation Strategies is excellent, a thoughtful and informative review of safety in the workplace from experts with different vantage points. I was especially impressed by the informative interview with Bill O’Rourke and the ALCOA safety experience. His description of the seven necessary steps to zero injuries in the workplace and overall impact on the business are important to hear. Jeff Fenster’s interview, with his experience as a former Executive Director of the NYWCB and now a senior officer at a major successful workers’ compensation carrier, is insightful and important to consider in the future of workers’ compensation in New York, and for insurance companies. Finally, what is consistent throughout the book is the message: you, the employer, take care of your employees and they will take care of you. Safety in the workplace counts from a human perspective and will result in a more successful business. I would recommend your book as a must read for those involved in the workers’ compensation system.”
Donald T. DeCarlo, J.D. CEO AMCOMP, Commissioner of NYS Insurance Fund, 1997-2009

“A Forward-Looking Entrepreneur Spreads the “Gospel” of Risk Management. Adam Friedlander gets it. Friedlander, a leader in Workers’ Compensation Safety Group creation and management, has written a new book, a series of interviews with top guns in risk management and related fields. It’s handsomely presented and a relatively quick read. This is good communication and deserves the attention it will garner. Nice job, Adam.”
