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:
- 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:
During the week of August 13 – 19, all Highway Transport employees participated in the Highway Hazard Hunt. All employees and every location nationwide were encouraged to discover safety scenes.
Some ideas for employees:
• Capture an image of someone who keeps you working safely every day.
• Take a picture of something that might be a safety hazard, and send it to your manager
• Simply tell your manager of something you suspect might be unsafe.
• Discover your artful side and capture a beautiful scene of your hardhat or a piece of safety gear.
Instructions to employees: Take a picture and send it to your manager. Or simply tell your manager.
