WINNIPEG, Man. — Bison Transport, already well-known for its on-road safety record, is expanding its safety programs into the shop.
The company has developed a Mechanic Safety Award Program designed to promote, improve and reward Bison mechanics who meet the company’s stringent safety standards.
Under the program, mechanics will be recognized quarterly and annually for contributing to a safe workplace, the company says. They’ll be measured on safe consecutive working hours while exposed to a high-risk work environment. The overall goal is to reduce injuries and damage to equipment, Bison announced.
“At Bison, safety is our top priority,” said Don Streuber, president and CEO of Bison Transport. “The very best training and equipment would be meaningless if we did not empower our people to make those decisions that impact safety.”
