“Trucking is an inherently dangerous occupation to have,” said Amber Roberts, TP Trucking Safety Coordinator. “Reaching this milestone demonstrates our commitment to the health and safety of our employees.”

Craig Turner, General Manager of TP Trucking, added, “Company drivers comprise 73% of our total workforce. To have accomplished this milestone in an industry that is so physically demanding as flatbed trucking is something we are very proud of.”

The last time TP Trucking achieved this milestone was in 2014. Since then, the company has been steadily increasing their focus on safety being a vital aspect of the team culture. Achieving this goal shows what can be accomplished when safety is kept as a priority.

 “There is ongoing improvement to our safety training as well as tapping into different learning styles for each individual,” explained Roberts. “Knowing how to best communicate the training to employees has grown and improved our safety culture.”

For the company drivers, they are very proud to have reached this goal as a team.

“When speaking with the drivers, they really seem to appreciate working for a company with a strong safety culture that cares about the well-being of their drivers and employees,” said George Wood, Driver Manager for TP Trucking. “Roughly 40% of our new drivers come from referrals of current employees, so I am confident that our safety record plays a big part in making the decision to work for TP Trucking.”

To congratulate the team for their hard work, special t-shirts were designed to commemorate the 365-day milestone. The shirts were given to the entire team including maintenance, paint & body, company drivers and office personnel. There was also a catered lunch for all the employees to enjoy.

“It’s awesome our team was able to achieve this,” said Tom Gennarelli, VP of TP Trucking and Transportation. “It is a challenge to go a year without an incident – a team effort all around and I’m proud of them. Here is to the next 365!”
