Safe and Sound Week

Throughout OSHA Safe + Sound Week 2018 Highway Transport met the goal of zero on the following:

  • zero highway accidents
  • zero spills
  • zero injuries

Highway Transport did have two minor incidents, so we didn’t meet that goal, but it was an outstanding week overall.

A big word of thanks to everyone at Highway Transport:

  • mechanics
  • tank cleaners
  • office personnel

Everyone worked together to make our Safe + Sound week a success.

Rick Lusby, Vice President of Safety, says, “Congratulations for a job well done, and I challenge everyone to see if we can make each week with these same goals. Let’s strive for Safe + Sound year ‘round! “

Here is Highway Transport’s Certificate of Recognition:
