by the Boston Business Journal for the Second Year in a Row

Safety Ranks 5th Among Large-Size Businesses

BOSTON, Mass. (June 19, 2014) - Safety Insurance (NASDAQ: SAFT), a leading provider of auto, home and business insurance in Massachusetts and New Hampshire, was named as one of the ‘Best Places to Work’ in Massachusetts for the second year in a row by the Boston Business Journal. The annual ‘Best Places to Work’ regional awards program recognized Safety Insurance for their achievements in creating a positive work environment that attracts and retains employees through a combination of employee satisfaction, working conditions and company culture.

Safety Insurance ranked 5th among the top 20 large-size businesses out of a pool of over 400 total companies that qualified for consideration. The awards are based on a two-stage nomination process and also the results of employee-satisfaction surveys taken throughout March & April, in which companies were evaluated on the results of more than 18,000 employee-satisfaction surveys. Employees answered questionnaires that addressed such factors as their pride in the company, company encouragement, support and recognition of achievement and relationships with co-workers and supervisors.

“Safety Insurance has always been committed to creating a welcoming and progressive work environment for all of our employees,” said David Brussard, President and CEO of Safety Insurance. “Being named as one of Bostons ‘Best Places to Work’; for the second year in a row is a validation of all of our continued efforts towards being the best company we know how to be. It really is an honor.”

Safety Insurance has consistently been recognized for their dedication to providing both employees and customers with the highest level of satisfaction. In 2013, Safety was again honored to be named one of The Ward Group’s 50 top performing companies, marking the sixth consecutive year on the list. In addition, Safety has been recognized seven years in a row as a member of the Globe 100, an annual list by the Boston Globe which ranks the best-performing public corporations based in Massachusetts.

Safety Insurance was recognized, along with all other award recipients, at a reception on June 12th at the iconic CitiCenter /Wang Theatre and profiled in a special supplement of the Boston Business Journal that was published on June 13th.
