ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. — Composites One LLC was recently presented a Platinum award by Great West Casualty Company as a part of the 2009 National Safety Awards Program, according to a release from Composites One. This is the eighth consecutive year the company has been an award recipient.
The National Safety Awards Program recognizes 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 year, the program drew more than 800 participants from across the country.
“Composites One has built a reputation on striving to prevent accidents allowing for the safe delivery of its materials for many years,” Bill Rudersdorf, director of HS&E for Composites One, said in the release. “It is part of our company-wide value statement that we maintain safe operations in all aspects of our business.”
In addition to receiving the Platinum award, Composites One was also named as the number one carrier in the Great West Elite Fleet Program. Carriers receive this special designation by meeting certain safety criteria throughout the year.
