Composites One was presented the Platinum Award by Great West Casualty, a provider of property and casualty insurance for the trucking industry, as a part of the 2016 National Safety Awards Programme.
This is the 15th consecutive year that Composites One has been named an award recipient and the 14th Platinum Award in as many years.
The National Safety Awards Programme recognises carriers in similar operations (truckload and less than truckload) with awards based on their year-end preventable accident results. Carriers are eligible to receive a Platinum, Gold, Silver or Participatory Award. This past year, the programme drew more than 800 participants from across the country.
“The Composites One organisation accepts the Great West Platinum Award with great pride again this year,” says Leon Garoufalis, President of Composites One. “Day-to-day operational safety is a fundamental core value at Composites One and is a key day-to-day focus at all our locations. By operating safely, we are able to provide real value to our customers through quality service, consistency and dependability. It is gratifying to see our outstanding safety record recognised by a company like Great West.”
