Everyone is in the know when it comes to our Safety Program – we are very transparent with our expectations, as well as our results. Every month, each sites’ management teams meet to review their current goals, year-to-date incidents, ways to prevent incidents, and upcoming training. These extra efforts have helped to keep our employees safe and have contributed greatly to our record safety year!

This year has been full of many exciting milestones and achievements, but here’s a few safety highlights we are especially proud to share:

Exceeding Criteria Award
The Shippers Group received an Exceeding Criteria Award from our insurance company this year for our safety performance and for exceeding all their categories as it relates to our employees’ safety.

Celebrated 5 Years with No OSHA Recordables 
Our warehouse in Gretna celebrated 5 YEARS with no OSHA recordables!

Reduced Incident & Damage Rate
Between all our sites, The Shippers Group collectively reduced our incident rate by 60% and our property damage rate by over 45% compared to 2021.

“We are having a phenomenal year on the safety front as we have had the fewest number of injures and safety incidents than ever before, so I want to say a big THANK YOU to everyone for working so safely and looking out for each other. Safety is our most important core value, and I could not be any prouder of our team’s focus in this area. The improvement over the past few years has been exceptional.” – Rob Doyle, President

While there is still always room to improve and grow, we are proud of all the work we have done and of the results we produced this year. Thank you to our Leadership and Safety Team for leading this charge and to our associates for working so hard to keep everyone and everything safe! We are excited to see what the additional improvements 2023 will bring as we continue to invest in our safety and training!
