Incident Prevention Inc. is now Utility Business Media Inc.
New Name Better Reflects Company’s Product and Service Offerings    

CRYSTAL LAKE, Ill. – February 1, 2012 – Effective January 1, 2012, Incident Prevention Inc. is now owned and operated by Utility Business Media Inc. (UBM).

“We are changing our business name to better reflect the company we are today,” said Carla Housh, UBM president and CEO. “Utility Business Media Inc. is still owned and managed by the same people who owned and managed Incident Prevention Inc. However, with the introduction of Utility Fleet Professional magazine in 2011, we have grown beyond serving just the safety marketplace.”

UBM offers a variety of products and services. It publishes two bimonthly magazines – Incident Prevention, written specifically for people employed in the safety utility industry, and Utility Fleet Professional, dedicated to utility fleet and equipment operations professionals. Twice a year UBM produces the iP Safety Conference & Expo, which features safety-focused seminars, networking events, panel discussions and exhibitors. The Certified Utility Safety Professional program, run by the Utility Safety & Ops Leadership Network, is the only program that offers safety credentials to employees of utilities, related contractors and communication providers.
