Annual safety training at The Shippers Group is designed to supplement our routine training program and enhance focus on safety. Diane Villafana, VP of Human Resources commented, "because safety is our number one priority, and one of our core values, we are driving to exceed the minimum standards to ensure the health and safety of our associates." Each year in February, we spend the entire month focused on safety topics and training.
On any given day, we have over 2000 individuals who depend on each other to ensure safety in our warehouse operations, so training and retraining are vital to the sustainability of our operations. Associates are trained upon hire and all associates—both full time and temporary—are required to retrain.

In the month of June, we focus solely on MHE training.
