COQUITLAM, B.C. — Clark Freightways will soon be recognized as the first recipient of the Trucking Safety Council of B.C.’s Certificate of Recognition (COR) award.
Clark will receive the COR award at its facility at 35 Burbridge St. in Coquitlam on Feb. 2 at 11:30 a.m. The presentation will be attended by Minister of Labour Iain Black.
The Council said that “Clark has proven their dedication to safety excellence through their involvement in the COR training program and commitment to the continuous improvement and endorsement of their safety management system.”
The COR program rewards its members with WorkSafeBC premium rebates of up to 15%. Participating carriers must demonstrate they take workplace health and safety seriously through focused management training and a company audit system.
“Earning a COR demonstrates Clark’s commitment to providing a positive workplace culture of safety and the genuine belief that worker injury and illness can be prevented,” said Leasa Hachey, communications specialist with the Trucking Safety Council of B.C. “This principle is promoted and shared throughout the organization, from senior management and supervisors to front-line employees.”
