WICHITA, Kan., Jan. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- In November 2015, RedGuard received an award for placing First in the Flatbed Division, Unlimited Employees Category in the American Trucking Association (ATA) National Industrial Safety Contest.
"To be recognized for achieving an award from the ATA is a tremendous accomplishment because we are competing on a national scale with some of the most safety conscious companies in the trucking industry," said Steve Crider, safety and compliance expert at RedGuard.
The Industrial Safety Contest submission is based upon the injury experience of Transportation Specialists during 2014. RedGuard Transportation Specialists haven't had an OSHA recordable injury since January 13, 2013.
"Considering everything their jobs require, besides driving, that potentially puts them at risk of injury speaks highly of their safety and injury prevention," says Crider. "From the heat of the summer to the extreme cold, ice and snow of the winter, RedGuard Transportation Specialists perform admirably and safely."
Wayne Peterson and Steve Madrigal from RedGuard accepted the award at the 2015 ATA Safety, Security and Human Resources National Conference and Exhibition in Little Rock, Arkansas in early November.
This is the second time in 2015 RedGuard has been recognized for its safety on the road. In April 2015, RedGuard was also awarded a certificate in Topeka, Kansas for Improved Highway Safety by the Kansas Motor Carriers Association (KMCA), an affiliate of the ATA.
