CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The Risk Control unit of CNA was recently recognized for its excellence in risk engineer development by UL, a world leader in advancing safety. The new professional designation, UL Recognized Risk Engineer (RRE), was awarded to approximately 200 of CNA’s Commercial Risk Control staff in the U.S., Canada and Europe, based on the strength of its risk control services, educational offerings and ongoing professional development.

“We are proud that our work with UL now sets a new standard of risk engineering excellence in the industry,” said Bob Lindemann, president and chief operating officer, CNA Commercial. “The RRE designation further demonstrates to our customers that CNA has the unique expertise to provide them with customized risk control and insurance solutions for their businesses.”

Moving forward, UL will be working with CNA and other industry representatives in developing the future designation of Certified Risk Engineer for the entire insurance industry.
