NSC Honors Texas Employers with Traffic Safety Awards

Print Article Contributed by FSM Staff

ITASCA, IL – The National Safety Council announced the recipients of the third annual Our Driving Concern Texas Employer Traffic Safety Awards, presented in partnership with the Texas Department of Transportation.

These awards recognize employers who have demonstrated an outstanding commitment to the safety and well-being of their employees on and off the job in the area of traffic safety.

NSC and Our Driving Concern recognize the following employers for their efforts in making Texas roads safer:

• Ainsworth Trucking
• BHP Billiton Petroleum
• Central Texas Rural Transit District
• City of Irving
• City of Waco
• ConocoPhillips
• Dallas ISD
• Eagle Ford Shale, STEPS
• GBJ Inc./AFC Transportation
• Mid-Coast Electric Supply, Inc.
• Texas Medical Center
• Walmart Distribution #6083

"Texas is a leader among states in many areas, but sadly it has the highest rate of fatal car crashes," said Deborah A.P. Hersman, president and CEO of the National Safety Council. "These employers are working to protect their employees and reverse this trend. We are thrilled to recognize their work."

The 2016 honorees were selected through an application process that evaluated each company's commitment to promoting safe driving behaviors among their employees. Employee education, training and other activities centered on traffic safety were considered. While each of these employers has in common a notable commitment to traffic safety, the group is diverse in many ways. Applicants ranged from employers with as few as 100 employees to those with 2,000 and from nonprofits to municipal organizations.

Plaques will be delivered to recipients of the 2016 Our Driving Concern Texas Employer Traffic Safety Awards during presentation ceremonies at their workplaces, and their achievements will be highlighted throughout the year as a means of showcasing traffic safety in Texas.
