RGL achieves national recognition for workplace safetyMonday, November 2, 2015
RGL, THE WHAT IF LOGISTICS COMPANY based in Green Bay, Wis., announced that its trucking division was recently awarded the ACUITY Safety Award for its continued commitment to fostering a culture of safety in the workplace.
Each year, less than two percent of ACUITY’s 3,000 transportation policy owners are eligible for the company’s Safety Award. RGL is one of only eight companies to receive the award for six consecutive years.
“At RGL, we take pride in our commitment to ensuring all employees are safe at all times,” said Bob Johnson, CEO of RGL. “Acuity’s recognition of our trucking division, for the sixth consecutive year, shows that our employees have bought into this culture and are truly looking out for the safety of themselves, their co-workers, and the motoring public.”
“RGL has always prided itself on maintaining an excellent record for workplace safety,” said Carol Jamrosz, vice president of risk management at RGL. “We make sure our drivers completely understand our safety policies through continuing education. In turn, our associates are prepared for any situation they might find on the road.”
Annually, RGL sets aside days for a Safety Blitz Campaign, where all RGL drivers go through a comprehensive safety checklist. This campaign ensures that everything the drivers do is done safely and legally. RGL’s Master Drivers are trained at Fox Valley Technical College, where they learn to identify unsafe habits, skills and behaviors. Through RGL’s detailed education of the rules and regulations, every RGL driver understands what is legal, what is safe, and what is required.
In addition to education about best practices, RGL encourages and promotes wellness among its drivers. RGL diligently listens to its employees and addresses any wellness concerns immediately. The company is committed to continuously improving the work environment for all its employees.
“RGL’s commitment to safety goes above and beyond what is standard for the industry,” said Chad Krueger ofACUITY Insurance. “It’s impressive the diligence RGL employees place on their own safety and the safety of their co-workers. The company is well deserving of this award.”
RGL focuses on transportation, distribution and handling; and safety remains at the forefront of RGL’s core values.
