He conveyed substantive information on cuts, slip-and-falls, lifting and fire/burns — those aspects of most importance to us — using simple, straightforward language and physical demonstrations. He had a good rapport with those in attendance and even solicited questions from workers, a highly unusual occurrence in my experience.

"And while I can't speak for everyone, I certainly learned a few new things, like designating a meeting point in the event of a catastrophe, and other things I had forgotten I knew, like how to use a fire extinguisher.

"Please convey our sentiments to the Friedlander powers that be."

Lobel's of New York, LLC

"Hi Adam, I just wanted to send you a quick note regarding one of your employees. Ivy, who was assigned to the case of one of my employees, was outstanding. She kept me informed every step of the way but more important she helped expedite the process which led to my employee Robert obtaining approval for surgery. She literally took the ball and ran with it getting approval within 2 hours of the time the doctor submitted his information to The New York State Insurance Fund; even the doctors office was impressed. Robert went on to have his surgery the following day. Having a key employee out on disability is a stress on a business and Ivy's efforts to expedite his return is commendable and greatly appreciated. I look forward to many more years of continued business with The Friedlander Group."
