PLYMOUTH, Wis., May 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Service One Transportation, a leading Wisconsin-based trucking and logistics company, was recently honored by Great West Casualty Company through its National Safety Awards and Workplace Safety Awards programs. Service One earned a Platinum Award for Outstanding Achievement in Workplace Safety for the third year in a row, as well as a Silver Award for Outstanding Achievement in Highway Safety.
Great West's Workplace Safety Awards celebrate trucking companies that create and foster a safe work environment for their employees, as determined by year-end workplace incident rates, while its National Safety Awards honor motor carriers with the lowest proportion of year-end preventable crash results. Each program features Platinum, Gold, Silver and participatory awards.
"We are proud to be recognized by Great West Casualty Company for the diligent efforts of our entire staff in contributing to Service One's achievements in workplace and highway safety," said Dan Flagstad, Jr., President of Service One Transportation. "By its nature, the transportation industry carries many inherent dangers; so our outstanding results in the safety arena reflect the ongoing commitment of every member of our organization."
Flagstad added, "We believe we have a responsibility to our employees and to the motoring public to always conduct our business in a safe and prudent manner. That culture of safety extends across all levels of our company, from management and administration to truck drivers, mechanics and dockworkers. Service One is known for our family-first philosophy—it's one of the reasons we're renowned for the best trucking jobs in Wisconsin—and we do everything in our power to ensure all of our employees return safely home to their loved ones."
Chris Wals, Lead Dock Man for Service One, affirms his team's dedication to safety: "On the shipping dock and in the warehouse, safety has always been a top priority. From proper lifting and moving techniques to safe forklift operation and equipment maintenance, our consistent application of these practices has helped us increase safety and efficiency. I take great pride in the fact that our department hasn't had a single accident or injury in the six years I have worked here."
Service One welcomes safety-minded drivers with a Class A commercial driver's license (CDL) to apply for available truck driving jobs. The company is presently hiring both over-the-road truck drivers and local/regional drivers, and is also seeking additional dock help for the busy summer season.
Service One currently has openings for both company drivers and owner-operators, and also offers part-time, seasonal and new/student truck driver jobs. In addition to excellent per-mile pay and full benefits, Service One features family-friendly policies and perks including a Family Passenger Program and pets permitted on the road.
