The Truck Trailer Manufacturers Association has launched an industry-wide initiative to promote workplace safety. Outgoing TTMA Chairman of the Board Rick Mullininx announced the creation of the new Safety Committee during the recent 76th TTMA Annual Convention in Bernalillio, NM.
“We want all of our employees to go home at the end of the day in the same condition as they arrived for work,” Mullininx said.
The TTMA Safety Committee Mission Statement:
Our Mission is to protect our people, our assets and the environment, though prevention of losses, damages and injuries to our employees and equipment.
We will achieve this through:
- Promoting safety best management practices in the trailer industry
- Providing legal and regulatory compliance updates and interpretations for our industry
- Connecting safety professionals within the industry; and
- Advocating for the safety interests of the trailer industry.
The Safety Committee’s first two years will be led by Chairman David Ritchie of Great Dane Trailers and Vice Chairman Karen Czor of Heil/Polar Tank Trailers. Additional details will be coming very soon to the TTMA membership, the organization said.
Full coverage of the TTMA Annual Convention will be featured in the June print edition of Trailer/Body Builders Magazine.
