ST. JACOBS, Ont. — Home Hardware’s St. Jacobs truck fleet has become the first Canadian retailer and independent carrier to qualify for a CSA International Carrier Safety Management System Standard (CSMS).
The company says qualifying to the CSMS program will help it demonstrate to customers, enforcement agencies and the public that it is continuously meeting safety obligations.
“Home Hardware is committed to reaching the highest standards for safety across our organization,” says Paul Straus, vice-president and Chief Executive Officer of Home Hardware. “We’re especially proud to be the first Canadian retailer to implement the CSMS standard.”
The CSMS standard provides transporters with a framework to help minimize the risk of incidents.
“Home Hardware’s CSMS qualification is a sign of the company’s integrity and quest for excellence,” says Wendy Tilford, president of QMI, the company that performed the qualification. “In an industry often under scrutiny for its commitment to safety, Home Hardware can now say they have gone the extra mile to operate a safe fleet.”
