Wabash National recently was honored with a 2018 Plant Safety Award from the Truck Trailer Manufacturers Association (TTMA) for its operation in Mexico, which makes Brenner and Bulk brand tank trailers.
The company also manufacturers stainless steel silos for Walker Engineered Products as its plant in San José Iturbide, Guanajuato, Mexico.
The plant won in Category B, which includes facilities with 300,000 to 750,000 man-hours per year. Category A is for more than 750,000 man-hours and Category C is less than 300,000.
“We’re thrilled to be recognized by TTMA once again for exemplary safety performance,” said Dave Hill, vice president and general manager for tank trailers. “Safety is our No. 1 value and priority at Wabash National, and this recognition is a testament to the operational excellence our employees deliver every day.
“I congratulate our entire team for a job well done.”
This is the 12th year Wabash National’s tank trailer business received a plant safety award from TTMA. The award was presented to Brent Yeagy, Wabash’s president and chief executive officer, on during TTMA’s 77th Annual Convention.
Award determinations are based on direct comparison of injury data from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) Annual Summary Form 300A, the same data used by the National Safety Council and the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Awards are given to tank and trailer manufacturers based on the number of man-hours worked.
