                                Commercial Customers
                Safety presentations in a dozen locations throughout the summer

      Keene, N.H. (June 8, 2009) – Peerless Insurance, a Liberty Mutual Agency Markets regional
company, is offering its commercial policyholders a series of free safety presentations this summer
geared towards reducing risks and making workplaces safer.

      The half-day sessions concentrate on construction and light industry, offering three
presentations for each discipline. The industry presentations include:

   •   Return to Work & Premium Impact – How to better control premiums through preventing
       and managing losses with an effective risk management strategy that utilizes loss prevention
       and claims management measures;
   •   Disaster Recovery – Examines operational preparedness for natural catastrophes or
       emergency scenarios, including vulnerability assessments and other resources for developing
       or improving a disaster recovery plan; and
   •   Violence in the Workplace – A danger to employees and a threat to a business’ reputation,
       this presentation explains the signs to watch for and how to manage and defuse the risk of
       an incident.

       The construction presentations include:

   •   Contractual Risk Transfer – Learn the potential liabilities assumed by general contractors or
       subcontractors through the use of specific language in contracts. This presentation looks at
       different risk transfer techniques as well as other protective measures;
   •   Dig Safe – State laws require notification of utilities before digging projects begin, but those
       requirements can vary from state-to-state. Participants will learn the requirements and
       procedures for their states; and
   •   Slips, Trips and Falls – Second to overexertion injuries, these injuries are the second most
       costly and frequently reported workplace claims. Participants will learn about contributors to
       slips and falls, what surfaces are better than others, and how to identify problem areas with
       the use of a slip meter.
