MRAA signs deal with risk-management consultant

The partnership entitles MRAA members to a 10 percent discount on KPA environmental health and safety and human resource management packages.

The Marine Retailers Association of the Americas said it is seeking to make it easier for members to manage regulatory compliance, control risk, protect assets and manage employees through a combination of software, training and onsite consulting provided by KPA, a new MRAA partner member.

The partnership entitles MRAA members to a 10 percent discount on KPA environmental health and safety and human resource management packages.

MRAA members gain access to KPA’s environmental health and safety and human resources solutions through the MRAA Rewards Program, which includes more than 30 benefits that members can take advantage of for their $300 annual investment in MRAA membership.

"The partnership with KPA opens up a whole new world of beneficial business solutions for dealers,” MRAA president Matt Gruhn said in a statement. "The environmental safety and compliance and HR packages that KPA offers MRAA members help dealers more easily manage these key aspects of their business, giving them back valuable time to focus on sales and revenue-generation efforts. The programs also offer dealers peace of mind that experienced professionals are managing their environmental and safety and HR needs 24/7; individuals with in-depth knowledge in these specific fields.”

"The relationship between KPA and MRAA will inevitably simplify day-to-day business responsibilities for marine retailers,” KPA environmental health and safety product vice president Eric Schmitz said.

"Our solutions help dealers reduce waste and waste management costs, lower regulatory citation liability and lawsuit exposure, save money on workers’ compensation premiums and decrease the time typically required by managers to train dealership employees in the areas of safety and compliance. We have specialists on call to answer any and all questions a dealership has, taking the headache out of these areas and providing world-class support for MRAA members.”
