West Brother’s Companies — a Raleigh, N.C.-based provider of transportation, logistics and leasing in the Southeast — recently announced that it has been honored with three safety awards from Liberty Mutual Insurance Co. for their achievements in 2006:
These awards come on the heels of similar recognition in August. In the North Carolina Trucking Association’s safety management program, West Brother’s Companies received a total of five awards spread across three companies, ranging from vehicle safety to industrial safety.
“Winning both Liberty Mutual and NCTA’s awards prove that we’re committed to ‘walking the walk’ and not just ‘talking the talk’ when it comes to safety programs,” says Craig West, chief executive officer. “In the long run, it pays to be safe. It’s a smarter business move to work with a fleet that’s well maintained and drivers who take safety seriously.”
