The dry van trailer manufacturer won in Category B, which is for medium-sized trailer plants with 300,000 to 750,000 manhours. Category A is more than 750,000 manhours and Category C is less than 300,000 manhours.
This is Strick’s fourth TTMA plant safety award since 2007.
“We are honored to receive this award,” said Chris Burt, Strick’s safety leader. “Strick diligently focuses on safety every day. As a part of Strick’s mission statement, we take time and pride in working with our employees in all aspects of safety. Being proactive to come in whole and leave whole is a strong guiding philosophy.”
TTMA introduced its plant safety contest in 1971. The winners are chosen from the plants with the leading plant safety data on their OSHA 300A Summary Form.
Awards are given in two classes: tank trailer manufacturers and general trailer manufacturers.
Winners were announced during the recent TTMA annual convention.
“If appropriate safety measures are in place and employees are aware of hazardous conditions, the safety risks on the production floor are decreased immensely,” Burt said.
